Liga MX Sides Tigres UANL, CF Monterrey, and Santos Laguna Confirmed for 2024 Gordon Jago Super Group

DALLAS, Texas (Wednesday, Feb. 28) – Dallas Cup, the oldest and most prestigious international youth soccer tournament in North America, is pleased to announce the participation of Liga MX sides Tigres UANL, CF Monterrey, and Club Santos Laguna in the U19 Gordon Jago Super Group at the 2024 Dallas Cup presented by Coca-Cola.

Tigres and CF Monterrey boast an impressive legacy in the Dallas Cup, collectively winning 32 “Boot & Ball” trophies across all age groups. With 16 Dallas Cup titles each, both Mexican sides hold the record for the most victories in the tournament’s history. Tigres and CF Monterrey will look to break away from their cross-town rival in the record book at the 2024 Dallas Cup presented by Coca-Cola.

Tigres has won four Super Group titles, which is the most by an individual club. One of the most successful Dallas Cup teams in recent memory, Tigres won back-to-back Super Group titles in 2018 and 2019 with wins in the finals over Arsenal and Villarreal, respectively. The Liga MX side also won the elite bracket in 2011 and 2003. 

Competing in the Gordon Jago Super Group for the 22nd time since the elite bracket was formed in 1990, CF Monterrey is seeking the club’s first Super Group title. Since 2015, Rayados have advanced to the Super Group semifinals on five occasions, including trips to the championship match in 2015 and 2017.

Also returning to the Gordon Jago Super Group is Club Santos Laguna. Making their fourth Super Group appearance in 2024, the Mexican side last competed in this category in 2006. Although yet to secure a Super Group title, Santos Laguna clinched the Super 17s division championship in 2015, led by notable talents like Uriel Antuna, Jorge Sanchez, and Gerardo Arteaga, all of whom represented Mexico in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.

With the inclusion of the Liga MX trio, the Gordon Jago Super Group lineup now features a diverse list of teams, including Premier League side Fulham FC, defending Super Group champions FC Midtjylland out of Denmark, Brazilian sides Sao Paulo FC and Botafogo, Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt, and Costa Rica’s L.D. Alajuelense. As more clubs are announced, the Gordon Jago Super Group promises to deliver elite competition on the pitch, featuring 12 elite teams representing top professional clubs and national federations from around the globe, all vying for the prestigious Super Group "Boot & Ball" trophy.

The 2024 Dallas Cup presented by Coca-Cola (Boys U12-U19) will be played March 24 through March 31 as the tournament celebrates an important milestone with its 45th anniversary. The boys’ tournament will once again be played concurrently with the Dallas Cup Girls Invitational (Girls U15-U19) which runs March 23 through March 29.
