FC Dallas president Quinn targets more big international games

FC Dallas team president Doug Quinn says international fixtures will be a regular occurrence under his charge.

Quinn's first game as president was with European champions Inter Milan.

He told mlssoccer.com: "We're going to have big international matches on a regular basis. Maybe not here, maybe we're going to have to play in [Cowboys Stadium] to get someone like Barcelona. I know they're coming back. They're coming back on a tour next summer. Since I managed them for the past six years at SUM, hopefully they'll give one back to the guy that brought them here.

"I think they'd love to play Jerry's World [Cowboys Stadium]. It's not perfect soccer. It's a little tight, but it's a beautiful building. The Barcelona folks like to play in iconic events and they like to sell out 90,000 in the Rose Bowl or the Coliseum.

"They like to be in big cities like New York and be sold out at Giants Stadium. This would be a natural. And they like to play MLS teams when they're here. They don't want to play other international clubs that they could play somewhere else. They want to play the domestic sides."
