Interestingly the MLS Reserve League uses three conferences: Eastern, Central, and Western. Teams will play all their games within their conference (to save money on travel?). FC Dallas is in the central Conference with Brimstone Cup Rival Chicago Fire.
Teams in the six-team Central and Western conferences will face each conference opponent twice, once home and once away. Teams in the seven-team Eastern Conference will play an unbalanced schedule, facing four of their conference opponents twice, home and away, one additional conference opponent at home, and the remaining club once on the road.
MLS Reserve League Conferences
Eastern: Columbus Crew, D.C. United, Montreal Impact, New England Revolution, New York Red Bulls, Philadelphia Union, Toronto FC
Central: Chicago Fire, Colorado Rapids, FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, Sporting Kansas City, Real Salt Lake
