A closer look at the 2020 schedule

Tough tests to start 

“We are excited to get started with a strong schedule, it will be important to be ready from day one” – Tab Ramos 

It will be vital Tab Ramos and his squad are ready from day one as the Dynamo open the 2020 season with three tough tests out of the gate. The LA Galaxy come to Houston on Opening Day presented by BBVA on February 29, the squad then faces an away match at an improved Sporting KC side a week late, before welcoming defending MLS Cup Champions Seattle Sounders FC to BBVA Stadium on March 14. 

The schedule doesn’t get any easier following the spring international break as the Dynamo immediately face a three-game homestand from April 4 – 15 facing Portland, new kids on the block Inter Miami CF, and Minnesota United in the first leg of the Dylan Wolpers Derby.
