DALLAS, Texas (Tuesday, Jan. 29) – The Dr Pepper Dallas Cup, the oldest and most prestigious international youth soccer tournament in the United States, has announced that CF Monterrey and Red Bull Brasil will compete in the Gordon Jago Super Group at the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup’s 40th Anniversary Tournament this April.
Current Liga MX leader CF Monterrey has a rich history at the Dallas Cup, winning a record 16 championship titles across all age groups. Despite reaching the Super Group final in 2010, 2015, and 2017, the Mexican side is still seeking their first Super Group title. Last spring, Rayados reached the semi-finals of the elite bracket, but fell short against hometown rival Tigres, who went on to win the Super Group title. Currently sitting in first place of the Liga MX table, CF Monterrey is hoping for a banner year in 2019 at both the senior and youth levels.
Also returning to the Gordon Jago Super Group is Red Bull Brasil. The 2019 Dr Pepper Dallas Cup will mark the third consecutive Super Group appearance for the club out of São Paulo. Red Bull Brasil was founded in 2008 with the cornerstone of the club being the youth development academy. Since the club’s inception, Red Bull Brasil have achieved several promising results at the youth level and they hope to add a Dr Pepper Dallas Cup championship to their resume this April.
CF Monterrey and Red Bull Brasil join a strong Gordon Jago Super Group that already includes Premier League powers, Arsenal FC and Liverpool FC, defending Super Group champion Tigres, and USSDA national champion New York City FC, among others. Dr Pepper Dallas Cup’s 40th anniversary tournament will be played April 14-21, 2019. Keep up to date with more news at www.dallascup.com and follow us on Twitter @dallascup.
