FC Dallas Academy Guadalajara travel rosters and early results

The FC Dallas U14s have been making a tournament trip to Guadalajara for years now and the club has come to value it so much that they started sending the U13s a few years ago as well. This year is no exception as both clubs are down there once again to take part in Copa Cronos 2023.

Not every player in these age brackets will always go to Mexico on trips, so I reached out to FC Dallas to get the travel rosters and this year it’s pretty close to the full roster. We do occasionally see a guest player on these trips. So if you spot a scoreline “guest player” that will be why.

So here are the two teams.

FC Dallas U14s – 2010s

The U14s are in a group with Toluca and Sporting KC but could face other clubs. They opened with a 2-1 win over Necaxa then fell to Atlas in game two by the same score. Next up in Chivas.

?Elvin Pinesa SerranoA new name that wasn’t on my preseason roster.

From the start of the season roster, the missing name is Nathan Vasquez. So I can’t help but wonder if the 2nd new name on this roster, Romeo Vazquez Jr, is the same player as the last name is very close.


  1. There is a kid named Aric Mata that scored the goal for the U14s against Atlas. He’s from El Paso and was a big name at Sueno Alianza, but I think FCD had some relationship with him prior to that.
