The Dr Pepper Dallas Cup, commonly known as the Dallas Cup, is an annual international football tournament for invited youth teams. The tournament was established in 1980[1] and is held in Dallas, Texas, with FC Dallas serving as its host club. Venues used for the tournament include the Cotton Bowl and Toyota Stadium. The Cup has tournaments for age groups ranging from U-13 to U-19. Tigres UANL is the champion of the U19 Supergroup. The first ever Dallas Cup saw an English club side from South London, St. Thomas More, win the U14 cup, an amazing display in goal from Sean Woods saw him lofted onto the shoulders of his team-mates in celebration.
