The Chicago Fire take on FC Dallas in a preseason edition of the Brimstone Cup today at 11:00 a.m. CT. The match will be held in Austin, TX at Austin FC’s St. David’s Performance Center. It’s closed to the public, but Chicago area fans can watch a live stream of the match at ChicagoFireFC.com.
Saturday’s preseason finale against Austin FC won’t be streamed live, so today’s match is the last chance you’ll get to watch the Fire before the Feb. 26 season opener against Inter MIami. The Fire hoped to stream Saturday’s match, but Austin’s technical staff wanted to keep things private.
Update: New Designated Player signing Xherdan Shaqiri has received his visa, and he’s flying to Austin on Thursday to meet up with his Fire teammates. The Fire were able to help fast track Shaqiri’s visa to give him more time to prepare for the MLS season opener on Feb. 26.
