MLS Opponents announced for CONCACAF Champions Cup

According to Fox Soccer Channel, DC United will begin their CONCACAF Champions Cup campaign away at Honduras' Olimpia the week of February 20-22 then host the return match the week of February/March 27-1. At least we will be a little less frozen in the return match. Flares still burn at 29 degrees right?

MLS Cup Champion, Houston Dynamo will also begin their campaign away, against Costa Rica's Puntarenas. This will be the first time that Houston has taken part in the CONCACAF Champions Cup, as they just "finished" their first season in the league. Hopefully the Dynamo won't lose De Ro over the off-season and will be able to do well in this tournament.

It is a good sign that CONCACAF gave the MLS clubs the away match first, usually they had been making the MLS clubs play away second, which in some type of thinking, is an advantage to the club playing at home second.

I cannot wait for the 2007 season to kick off.
