This past Saturday, FC Dallas hosted the 3rd annual 3v3 Heat Tournament at the fields of the FC Dallas Stadium Complex. Participant age groups ranged from U8-U10 on the girls' side and U8-U15 on the boys' side, as well as an adult division. The tournament hosted 57 teams, a 25 percent increase from last year's 42 teams, according to tournament director Jesse McNeil.
The day started with each team playing three games against the other teams, with the best records in each division advancing to the playoffs. Each division crowned a champion. It was a long day, but all of the teams enjoyed the tournament, with many saying they look forward to participating in next year's tournament.
"We had a great time. It was well run, Jessie did a great job organizing it and we had a blast," Alan Beanie, coach of the winning Azzuri team, said, "We definitely would do it again."
Participants of all age groups agreed on the success of the tournament, and in general, enjoyed the tournament.
"I loved this tournament. It's a great way to spend time with your teammates and get to know each other better and it's always fun to do these tournaments," Johan Gomez, a participant in the tournament, said.
