Our Academy will open the Dallas Cup with the first match of the prestigious tournament in Dallas, America next month.

The lads face home team Dallas Texans in the 'Super Group' of the Under-19 tournament at the Pizza Hut Park Stadium in Frisco, Texas - home of MLS side FC Dallas - on Sunday, March 28.

We also take on the Japanese national team and Tigres of Mexico in the group stages.

The tournament has attracted the likes of Chelsea, Eintracht Frankfurt and Cruzeiro plus national teams from Japan, Mexico and the USA.

It runs from March 28 through to the final on April 4 with group matches split between Pizza Hut Park Stadium and Richland College.

Dallas Cup Executive Director Gordon Jago said: "We feel that the games will create a huge amount of excitement in the local soccer community. Our expectation is that the stadium will be alive with the fans supporting their favorite teams and hitting capacity (21,000) is not out of the question."

For any Spurs fans in the Dallas area, information on purchasing Stadium tickets prior to the tournament will be available on the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXI website atwww.dallascup.com in the near future.
