Dallas Cup Moves to Cotton Bowl For 2013
Over the weekend, members of the Demosphere team traveled to Dallas to experience Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup XXXIV. After a successful multi-year run in Frisco at FC Dallas Stadium, the event moved into the city with key games being played at the historic Cotton Bowl.
Founded in 1980 by Texas Longhorns Soccer Club, the Dallas Cup is a competition for top-level boys teams in the U13 to U19 age-range and has the distinction of being the longest running international youth soccer tournament in the United States.
In 2013, 180 teams are participating, including youth teams from well-known international clubs like Manchester United, Club America, Fulham FC, Tigres, Fluminense FC, and many more. In the first day of competition, local team FC Dallas scored a 1-0 win and Manchester United defeated Club America 2-0.
Demosphere’s President and CEO Jay Baker and Senior Account Manager Camille Cheatwood (pictured above) experienced some Texas hospitality at the the opening weekend socials and events. They also had a chance to see some of the showcase games, too.
For those that have never been to Dallas Cup, it’s definitely worth the trip!
