The Philadelphia Union will open the 2020 season in Frisco, Texas on February 29 and host the San Jose Earthquakes on March 14, Major League Soccer announced on Thursday.

The Union open the 2020 campaign at Toyota Stadium against FC Dallas at 6 p.m. eastern time. Two weeks later they’ll be back at Talen Energy Stadium to host another Western Conference opponent in San Jose. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

This will be the first time the Union start the season on the road since 2017 when they opened their campaign in Vancouver. They started their 2016 season in Frisco, began the 2014 and 2012 seasons in Portland, the 2011 in Houston and their inaugural season in Seattle.
