McDermott and Reidell to join Crew 05's for prestigious Dallas Cup

After a rigorous tryout process featuring 60 players including Columbus Crew's very own 05 Academy players, Empire United duo Brennan McDermott and Luke Reidell have been selected to the final roster of 12 players to fly to Dallas this week for the prestigious Dallas Cup!

Boasting an international lineup including Youth Academy teams from Manchester United, Everton, Chivas Guadalajara, and Eintracht Frankfurt, among others, Dallas Cup is the premier youth soccer event annually with a full week's worth of games and events.

Columbus Crew's 05's will be part of an MLS bracket and will square off against NYCFC, Sporting Kansas City, Chicago Fire, and LAFC, prior to two placement group matches to be announced later.

Congratulations to Brennan and Luke and best of luck in Dallas!
