Where would Dallas be without the Dallas Cup? Dallas owes its standing in the worldwide soccer scene to the success of this International Youth tournament that is so well known throughout the world.

Everybody in the world knows about the Dallas Cup, one of the most important and premier youth tournaments in the world.
Peter Kenyon, CEO Chelsea FC
I have already heard how successful the tournament was and more importantly how some of our young and developing referees performed. It is always pleasing to note good news but when we support our referees in this way there is an expectation of high performance. Thank you for everything. The way you value and look after our guys is incredible.
Ian Blanchard, England Football Association Referee Association Chairman
Once again the Dallas Cup was a fantastic experience for all involved. All of the staff at the Dallas Cup should take great pride in the contribution that you are making to player development by bringing such quality teams together on an annual basis. Thank you very much for including us again this year.
Greg Anderson, Director, Professional Teams, Vancouver Whitecaps FC
Once again the Dallas Cup demonstrates that it is a World Class Tournament and provides an ideal training ground for our Young Referees. It has produced some terrific results for us with many going on to become top performing Premier League and International Referees.
Keith Hackett, Development Manager, PGMOL England
A great tournament! It gives our players the opportunity to test their abilities against some of the finest youth players in the world.
Kevin Smith, Director of Coaching, Solar SC
I honestly think your tournament is the best run tournament we attend. The game officials are top notch professionals, the volunteers are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful, and the venues were great. Your tournament is helping make our team better and better. Again - thanks. We had a wonderful time!
John Shackleford, Albion U14, California
I recently attended Dallas Cup XXX as a referee.  Having now arrived back home in Manchester and reflecting on the tournament experience, I must say that it was one of the most enjoyable times of my life.  I met many people of different nationalities and have made some good friendships over my stay in Dallas.  I would certainly want to officiate in the tournament next year to experience the Dallas Cup once again. My sincere thanks for hosting such an excellent tournament.
Edward Frazer, Manchester FA Referees' Academy
Many thanks to you and all the organizers of the Dallas Cup this year. It was a tremendously valuable experience for not just our boys but our entire staff.  Again – thanks from all of here at Toronto FC.
Earl Cochrane, Director & Manager Team Operations, Toronto FC
Just returned to NY from Dallas Cup. I wanted to let you know that this was the best tournament we ever attended. Every part of the tournament was excellent. We look forward to returning.

Coach Dix Hills Thunder BU14
On behalf of all the players and staff I thank you and all of your staff for a wonderful week. There is obviously a massive amount of organization goes into making the week go smoothly and from our point of view it certainly did. We arrived meeting acquaintances and departed having gained friends. Many thanks for a truly great time.
Pete Lowe, Manchester City FC, Super Group
I want to thank you and all the staff members and volunteers for another very successful Dallas Cup. Thanks for all what you all do for these kids and for youth soccer.

Edsel Garciamendez-Budar, Manager, Andromeda U16 Academy
We will be looking forward in continuing support of the Dallas Cup by sending not only match officials but also instructors to future tournaments. Thank you for the opportunity for Kristian to experience this level of football in a tournament atmosphere. The experience he has gained will be invaluable in his endeavour to become one of the top match officials in Australia.
John Bowdler, Chairman, New South Wales State League Football Referees (NSWSLFR)
Just wanted to drop a note of thanks for your efforts and support during Dallas Cup.
Our boys were quite happy to have another opportunity to play in you great event, and were thrilled to have such quality competition in their Super Group.
In their initial Dallas Cup at Under 12, the boys advanced to the championship game. A few years later we hosted a team from England and subsequently traveled to England to visit those boys, meet their families, experience their home town, have a go at cricket, and play in and win the UMBRO Manchester Cup.  None of that would have occurred without Dallas Cup. We will always carry fond memories of our appearances in Dallas Cup events, our experiences with Home Stay teams from several countries, and the growth that came to our boys while playing such quality teams in such a fine tournament. Many thanks from the players and families of the Andromeda U18 National Academy team.
