GA Cup General Info

The 2024 Generation adidas Cup is an annual MLS-run youth tournament. The GA Cup, which includes 49 clubs both from the U.S. and international, runs from March 30 to April 7 at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Twenty-eight games will be streamed on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV.

The GA Cup has two age brackets (U15 and U17) and is organized into 10 groups of four teams. Each team plays three games during the group stage and the top two finishers in each group will move on to the knockout rounds, beginning with the Round of 16. Knockout rounds are single-elimination all the way up until the final. Teams that don't advance from the Group Stage will enter a 16-team consolation bracket.

The FCD U15s were drawn into Group I alongside Philadelphia Union and Inter Miami CF of MLS, as well as KRC Genk of the Belgian Pro League. The U17s are in Group I with MLS clubs Toronto FC and Charlotte FC, as well as Club Necaxa of Liga MX.

Last year, FC Dallas' U17 team advanced all the way to the final of the 2023 GA Cup but were defeated by the Philadelphia Union. Despite reaching the final on three occasions (2009, 2011 and 2023), the FC Dallas Academy has yet to win the GA Cup.
