Dr Pepper Dallas Cup Converts to Age-Pure Brackets

Dr Pepper Dallas Cup will be adopting an “age pure” label for each age group as mandated by US Youth Soccer. Dallas Cup XXXVIII, which will be played April 9-16, 2017, will be the inaugural tournament for the new age bracket format. To align with international standards, competitions will be based on age group cut-offs of January 1 for each age group. Previously, age groups were determined based on players born between August 1 and July 31.
