Fans looking to secure tickets prior to Jan. 18 are invited to take advantage of the Club's Opening Day Winter Pack offer or the 10-Ticket Flex Plan.

The Fire will play 17 home games and 17 away games during the 2019 MLS campaign. The Men in Red will take on each of their Eastern Conference opponents twice during the season, with one game at home and one game away. The Fire will face each Western Conference opponent once during regular season action.

The Fire's longest home stand will occur from March 9-30, with the Men in Red scheduled to face Orlando City SC (March 9), Seattle Sounders FC (March 16) and the New York Red Bulls (March 30) during that stretch.
