2015 Dr. Pepper Cup (Dallas)

Recommended Posts

DALLAS, Texas (Wednesday Sept. 17) – The Dr Pepper Dallas Cup, the most prestigious youth soccer tournament in the United States, has announced that Everton FC, the current Barclays U18 Premier League Champion, has officially accepted the invitation to participate in the elite tournament’s 2015 Gordon Jago Super Group. Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXVI will be held from March 29 through April 5, 2015.


Returning for a third time to the Dallas Cup, the Merseyside club is recognized as being one of the premier developmental academies in England. Two of their esteemed graduates, 2014 FIFA World Cup players Wayne Rooney and Ross Barkley, appeared with Everton in the 1999 and 2012 Dallas Cup tournaments, respectively.


In May of this year, Everton defeated Manchester City 1-0 to win the Barclays U18 Premier League, the highest level of youth soccer played in England. In consideration to represent the club in Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXVI are many of the players from that championship team, including Harry Charsley, who scored the championship-clinching goal, along with English U18 national team players Ryan Ledson, who recently captained England to the European U17 championship, Callum Connolly, and Jonjoe Kenny.


The Toffees upcoming trip to Dallas continues the long-standing relationship between the world-renowned tournament and the English Premier League. Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City are among the Premier League teams that have competed in past Dallas Cups. Fulham was the last English side to claim the Gordon Jago Super Group, hoisting the “Boot and Ball” trophy in 2013.
