FC Dallas, Tigres UANL resume Rio Grande Plate

FCD travel to Monterrey to take on Tigres in 1st leg of series


FRISCO, Texas – While most MLS teams are testing their depth charts ahead of the international friendly date this Saturday, FC Dallas traveled to Monterrey, Mexico, where they will face Tigres UANL in the renewal of the Rio Grande Plate on Wednesday night.

FCD captain Daniel Hernandez, a veteran of the Mexican league, thinks this is a good opportunity for FC Dallas to reacquaint themselves with the 51-year-old club.

“We are going down there trying to start this new relationship with Tigres,” Hernandez told MLSsoccer.com before departing for Mexico. “They play great soccer, have a great atmosphere in their stadium, and it will be a good test for us.”

FC Dallas’ relationship with Tigres dates back to 2006, when the MLS team won the first match 2-0 at home before taking capturing the inaugural Rio Grande Plate with a 5-4 win in penalties in Monterrey.

In 2007, Tigres posted two 2-0 wins over FC Dallas, regaining the silver plate that serves as the trophy.

so far only the MLS All Star game against Manchester United but expect tickets to be super expensive compared to the Man City/Tottenham tournament which I went to

Don't expect too many matches here, it would have been announced already. Both Red Bull Arena and the Meadowlands are hosting some Gold Cup matches

Yea I went to watch Juve play NY and it was mad cheap. It would be great to see national teams play friendlies here, if Albania came you would see at least 50,000 people at the stadium, even thou the capacity is 30,000 lol. But if Germany or Holland came to play here it would be great. NT's would get more attendances than club teams imo.

Timbers to Play West Brom


Portland Timbers are to play EPL club West Bromwich Albion in a friendly.
They will host the West Midlands club on Wednesday, July 20, at JELD-WEN Field at 8 p.m.
Albion, known colloquially as West Brom, have surprised many with the ease with which they have escaped relegation from the EPL in a better season than expected.

Officially the club’s nickname is the Throstles after the bird that adorns their crest. However it is rarely used by fans who would tell you that the club’s nickname is the Baggies.
