DALLAS (February 10, 2004) --- Dallas Cup XXV officials have fielded a record number of entry requests from teams vying for admission to the most popular international youth soccer tournament in the country. The Super Group continues to draw major interest and in recent weeks squads from CD Guadalajara and Argentinos Juniors have joined the premier group. This week the Costa Rica U20 National Team (85) and the USA U18 National Team (86) filled out the remaining slots in the Super Group. These four teams join an international field consisting of Blackburn Rovers (England), Tigres (Mexico), CF Monterrey (Mexico), Atletico Paranaense (Brazil), Deportivo Saprissa (Costa Rica) and Eintracht Frankfurt (Germany). In addition to these top international squads the Super Group will also include the Chicago Magic and the Dallas Texans.

 

Now that we have completed the Super Group selection process we are very excited about the prospects in all the age groups, not just the Super Group, at Dallas Cup XXV. The selection process in the other five age groups is still on-going and should be complete in the next few weeks.  It looks like we will have over 150 teams from 17 different countries participating. We were disappointed to lose Leeds United but the addition of the Blackburn Rovers, one of the most storied clubs from the Premier League, will continue the high level of competition, said Randy Jones, Dallas Cup Tournament Manager.
