To keep everyone up to date with all the happenings going on here in Dallas we will be proving wall-to-wall coverage every single day with pictures, video and a blog entry.
We left Grande Sports Academy on Friday afternoon and arrived around 10am Arizona time on Saturday. Along the way we watched numerous movies, had lots of laughs and made a few stops for food.
As soon as we got into town we made our first stop at the tournament check-in hotel. The place was packed with players who were playing FIFA 13 and buying gear at the official shop. We then left for our hotel for a quick break and then headed over to dinner at Sweet Tomatoes.
After dinner we then had an opportunity to check out a Major League Soccer game. Real Salt Lake just so happens to be in town taking on local team FC Dallas. Unfortunately for RSL they lost 2-0 after playing very well for the majority of the match.
We left immediately after to game to get some much-needed rest so the players can be 100% for their opening game Sunday morning at 9:30am (Game starts at 7:30am Arizona time).
Make sure to follows us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram tomorrow for updates from the game.
