There are few soccer tournaments in the world as important as the Dallas Cup. There are few organizations commited to promote amateur athletes as USSSA does. There are also thousands of great players in this country. You just need to go out there and find them. And that’s what we have done.
This year, for the very first time, Alianza de Futbol was part of the 2012 Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup, but that could not have happened without the United States Specialty Sports Association support. Thanks to a growing partnership between BRC Group and USSSA, young footballers had the chance to play against some of the best teams in the world… and they did a great job.
The Alianza de Futbol team was truly an all-star team. Players from all over the country were scouted by some of Mexico’s and USA’s top soccer coaches and scouts. With tryouts in more than 15 cities, we ended up with 20 players that were part of this unforgettable experience.
Back in Texas, the Alianza boys had to face tough rivals such as Pateadores, Andromedas and the Lewisham College (UK). Despite not making it to the next round, being the first unaffiliated non-club team to play this tournament speaks about what Alianza de Futbol and USSSA have accomplished with all these kids.
It’s easy to make things happen when there’s a sense of commitment. When there’s passion. When there’s love for the sport.
Alianza de Futbol and USSSA….making history together.
