Lamar Hunt US Open Cup logoUPDATE: The potential dates and times of the Fourth Round games have been added below. Also the Round 3 schedule is listed below as well. 

With the tournament expanding to 80 teams in 2014, the 101st Lamar Hunt US Open Cup added an additional round, and pushing Major League Soccer’s entry to the Fourth Round. Today, the US Soccer Federation announced the draw for Round 4, revealing which Round 3 winners will play which of the 16 US-based MLS clubs next month.

The draw took place Friday morning with the host teams determined by coin flip. The teams involved are invited to apply to host and those that meet the federation’s venue standards will be included in the coin flip.

The tournament employs a regional draw in an effort to minimize travel costs, which allows for matchups that feature local rivals and . The most notable potential pairing comes from the New York/New Jersey area as the winner of the New York Cosmos will face the New York Red Bulls. The Dayton Dutch Lions will have the opportunity to get a rematch with the Columbus Crew, but they will have to get past NASL expansion side Indy Eleven, who are looking to make a splash for team president Peter Wilt, who won four Open Cup titles while in charge of the Chicago Fire of MLS.

Elsewhere, there will be an all-Texas match in Round 4 as the winner of the North Texas Rayados-San Antonio Scorpions game will take on FC Dallas in Frisco. Bruce Arena will likely be pleased that the Los Angeles Galaxy will not have to travel to the East Coast for the third year in a row. Instead, they will either host Arizona United (USL Pro) or travel to Oklahoma City to take on the USL Pro’s expansion side Energy FC. Unfortunately, with an odd number of West Coast teams, Chivas USA are the unlucky ones as they will make the cross-country trip to play either the Charlotte Eagles or the Carolina RailHawks. If Charlotte wins, it will be the third time the clubs will have met (Chivas USA winning both), and if Carolina wins, it will be the third year in a row that the Goats will play at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary.

The Fourth Round will take place during the FIFA World Cup break between June 10-18, which leaves the door open for weekend Open Cup games, something that has never happened in the Modern Professional Era (1995-present). The dates and times of the Fourth Round games will be announced at a later date.

The federation also announced that Arizona United SC will host Oklahoma City Energy in the Third Round at the Peoria Sports Complex in Peoria, Ariz. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. local time. Also, the USSF’s ‘Game of the Round’ broadcast will be announced at a later date.
