The 5:00pm match is a clash between two former Super Group champions. Last year’s Super Group runner-up, Sao Paulo FC, is a three-time champion, winning the elite U19 bracket in 1995, 2007, and 2009. The 2024 Dallas Cup presented by Coca-Cola marks the fifth Super Group appearance for Fulham FC. The historic Premier League side hoisted the coveted “Boot & Ball” trophy in their Dallas Cup debut back in 2013.

The 7:30pm semifinal match is showdown between local side FC Dallas and Brazil’s Botafogo. Heralded as one of the top MLS youth academies FC Dallas brings a rich history to the Dallas Cup, having secured eleven "Boot & Ball" trophies, including a memorable Super Group triumph in 2017. The 2017 championship marked a historic milestone as FC Dallas became the first and so far the only MLS Academy side to claim victory in the elite bracket. Hailing from Rio de Janeiro, Botafogo debuted at Dallas Cup last year. After failing to advance from the group stage in 2023, the Brazilian side seems eager for redemption, as they powered through Group C with wins over Club Santos Laguna, St. Louis City SC, and defending champions FC Midtjylland.
