The champions are returning next spring to defend their title.  River Plate of Argentina have confirmed they will be in attendance for the tournament scheduled for March 29 - April 5 in Dallas, Texas. 

Last year River Plate avenged an opening night loss by defeating the US Under 20 National Team in the final.  Luca Boy√© was the hero on the night and he has since gone on to make 23 appearances for the first team this year.  River Plate is going for the Copa Sudamericana championship next week to claim the title as best club in South America.

Also on board are rival Cortiba from Brazil.  Cortiba won the Dallas Cup Super Group title in 2012 and will be making their fifth straight appearance at the elite tournament.  Cortiba were eliminated by River Plate in last year's semifinal match.
