Last month the FC Dallas Central youth soccer players were featured on our website before heading off to the SuperCopa Elite 24 National Championships where the team squared off against soccer teams from around the country. The team returned recently having gone undefeated in the tournament, and being awarded the top prize.

In the championship game the team beat Orlando City MLS 1-0.
