April 17, 2018 - FC Durham Academy's 2005B Blue recently attended the premier Youth Soccer event in North America the Dallas Cup.
The Dallas Cup attracts some of the best youth teams in North America, Mexico and Europe.
Our Boys were placed in a very strong group with Chivas (Mexico), Solar ( Texas) and Albion SC (California).
They competed at very high level, growing in each game. An opening game lose to Albion SC opened their eyes to the level of play at the Tournament.
They responded with a terrific effort losing a nail biter to Chivas 1-0. In their last group game vs a very strong Solars team some last minute heroics lead to a 2-2 tie.
Showing that the team was improving with every game. The Boys also had the chance to watch some of the best U18 Academy teams in the world. Manchester United, Arsenal, and Tigres played in the Super Group. Seeing these teams play at a very high level was an invaluable experience.
Our FCD teams are always looking to attend the Best Tournaments and Showcases in North America.
We are always looking for a challenge and at the Dallas Cup our 2005B Blue met the challenge head on and are now looking to improve their game and return to these types of top level events.
Congrats to our 2005B Blue!
