The champions are returning.  Fulham’s Under-19s will be arriving next week to defend their Dr Pepper Dallas Cup. It will be the Club’s second consecutive involvement in the Dallas Cup, after our success last season, and we will become the fourth consecutive Premier Academy League champion to headline the Gordon Jago Super Group.

The Whites’ upcoming trip to Dallas Cup XXXV continues the long standing relationship between the tournament and the English Premier League, giving the US fans an opportunity to see the future stars of soccer. Key contributors in their championship run, George Williams, Cameron Burgess, Solomon Sambou and Emerson Hyndman, are expected to return.

Fulham were drawn into Group A along with former champions Cortiba of Brazil, Swedish side IF Brommapojkarna and FC Dallas.  They will be the opening match of the tournament on Sunday when they play FC Dallas at the Cotton Bowl.

“We are really looking forward to returning to the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup,” said Jennings. “We had a fantastic experience last year which was capped by winning the Gordon Jago Super Group. The players and staff want to demonstrate that the success was not a one off and that we can reproduce the standard that we showed again.”
