Once upon a time, before the proliferation of podcasts, social media and YouTube, there was an internet radio show based out of Lansing, Mich. that was the only one of its kind that covered every level of American soccer, from the still-fledgling Major League Soccer (MLS) to the birth of what is now the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).
Since 2003, TheCup.us has been covering the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup from the first qualifying game to the championship game. During that time, the site has done very little editorializing because I decided early on that we would stick to simply being a news outlet. However, today seems appropriate to share my thoughts on what could be an important, albeit minor, development in the tournament’s coverage.
The new competition will begin in the fall of 2015 and will involve teams from the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA), US Club Soccer (USCS) and the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) with the qualifying teams advancing to the 2016 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup the following spring.
