The championship game for the 2016 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup isn’t until Tuesday (Sept. 13, 10 p.m. ET) but this weekend, the qualifying tournament for 2017 will begin.
After two teams (Newport FC, Miami Dade FC) dropped out of the competition, there are 62 open division amateur teams remaining and 52 of them will begin play in the Round 1. Of the 26 opening round games, seven of them will kick off this weekend (Sept. 10-11). The remainder are scheduled to take place the following weekend (Sept. 17-18).
UPDATE: A third team advanced to Round 2 by way of forfeit when the New York Greek American SC dropped out due to lack of player availability. FC Motown from New Jersey now moves on to Round 2.
