U-20 Obama Cup in Dallas featuring Mexico, Nigeria, Panama and Costa Rica?

New, 2 comments

File this one under the bizarre but it looks like the Mexico U20, Nigeria, Panama and Costa Rica national teams are coming to Dallas this week for something called the Obama Cup. 

I wouldn't make a post about this but that link is straight from the Mexican Football Federation and they're bringing some players with Liga Mexicana experience. Apparently they play Nigeria on Saturday and the winner of that game will face the winner of Panama vs Costa Rica. 

Here's an article from a Nigerian website about this. Does anyone have more information on what's going on here?

 

Edit: Apparently it's called the Green Soccer Bowl and it's happening at the Cotton Bowl this weekend but I can't find anything on Ticketmaster about it http://www.greensoccerbowl.com/dallas/

This.is.weird.
