Generation Adidas Cup Opens in Frisco Today

New, 4 comments

In the past year Frisco has hosted Dallas Cup, Development Academy playoffs, Mexican club youth team friendlies and today the Generation Adidas Cup kicks off in Frisco. The GA Cup, formerly known as the SUM Cup, is basically a U17 tournament comprised of every MLS youth team except for Portland and Vancouver. The winner is generally invited to a prestigious youth tournament in Madrid later this fall.

If you live in north Dallas expect to see these teams out and about this week, just yesterday I ran into both DC United and Chicago Fire at Walmart. Luckily for them, I was with my wife or we would have had to throw down. I will fight a kid....just kidding. 

For FC Dallas, this will be another opportunity to strengthen their claim as the best MLS youth program in the country. If you need a reason to catch a game, rumors are that Alfred Koroma, U17 national team star striker who normally plays for Solar, will be joining FCD for this tournament. I'm not really sure how the rules work on what players can play for what teams, but I think you can rest assured there will be some of the best youth talent in the country on display over the next weke. They'll play five games in all over the next seven days(yuck), but smartly they're all at night.
