Mason Csapo selected to 2007 Boys USYS National ODP Team
The Dallas Cup is the most prestigious youth soccer tournament in the US and it is widely regarded as one of the most competitive in the world. Dallas Cup was founded by the Texas Longhorns Soccer Club in 1980 as a way for the club to return the friendship shown to their teams that had traveled throughout Europe. Held every spring during Easter week, the invitation-only Dallas Cup selects the best teams out of the hundreds of qualified applications the tournament receives each year. Although there have been several iterations over the years to the format, Dallas Cup is currently comprised of nine age groups in the Boys category from U12 through U19, including the prestigious U19 Gordon Jago Super Group and four age groups in the girls category from U15 to U19.
The tournament traditionally consists of approximately 40% international teams, 40% state-side teams and 20% Dallas area teams. Each year more than 100,000 spectators watch the teams from all over the world participating in
