Some huge news that has been in the works for quite some time was finally announced today as Dallas Cup XXXIV will be played at UTD & Richland with the regular first Sunday tripleheader/Wednesday/Semifinals/Finals taking place at the Cotton Bowl.
The news is a bit disappointing for those who live up north and have been used to taking in the Dallas Cup every year from close to home, but for the majority of Dallas County I think it's going to end up being a pretty cool thing.
It's kind of explained in the articles, but basically how I had it told to me was that FCD Stadium is a Mercedes and Dallas Cup can afford Civic prices. They've been paying Civic prices since 2006, but FCD is now asking for closer to Mercedes prices to rent out the facility and it just didn't work out.
There are some VERY cool plans in the works surrounding the week of Dallas Cup for the City of Dallas and I think everyone except those in far northern parts of the metroplex are going to end up really liking this move. Stay tuned because this year's Super Group is going to be massive. We've already confirmed Fulham FC, Fluminense, Coritiba, Eintracht Frankfurt and Tigres with some even bigger names close to being confirmed.
