A well-known tournament, the Dallas Cup selects nearly 40% of participants from outside of the United States and another 40% from across the U.S. For more than 30 years, the brightest stars in youth soccer, including David Beckham, Landon Donovan, Wayne Rooney, and Clint Dempsey, have taken the field in hopes of claiming a championship or catching the eye of future Spice Girls. The Dallas Cup plans to attract nearly 160,000 cleat-crazed soccer lovers throughout the tournament, enabling fans to rub shoulders with foreign counterparts, college scouts, and babies laying the groundwork for future presidential campaigns.
