“If we play them together in the first game in Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXIII, 1 – 8 April 2012 we can claim a Guinness Book of Records for the longest soccer game ever starting on April 24, 2011 and finishing on April 1, 2012 “approximately 8208 hours” joked Executive Director, Gordon Jago in announcing both clubs joining Everton FC for next year’s tournament”.
The 2011 Super Group final between the two clubs had to be abandoned due to lightning in the 65th minute with score tied at 1-1.

With the scored tied both teams were awarded Super Group Co-Champions for 2011.
