At Sporting Park, Sporting Kansas City hosts Real Salt Lake in one of MLS’ budding rivalries, and just outside of Philadelphia, the Union host the Chicago Fire in a battle of two teams trying to save their season.
The United States Soccer Federation conducted a coin flip to determine the hosting priorities for the 2015 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup Final. After it was all said and done, the Chicago Fire, who are seeking a record-tying fifth US Open Cup title, are the top priority to host the championship game if they defeat the Philadelphia Union in the Semifinals on Aug. 12.
The Quarterfinals saw record crowds (overall) and unprecedented drama in every game. Thanks to that, there are a number of great individual performances to choose from for TheCup.us Player of the Round.
There are three Quarterfinal matches remaining with two of them on Tuesday and the Chicago Fire and Orlando City on Wednesday. We’ll have live coverage of every game. Who will join Real Salt Lake in the Semifinals?
With 14 of the 16 teams hailing from Major League Soccer, that doesn’t mean there’s any shortage of drama for the Fifth Round, which will be split, four games each, between Tuesday, June 30 and Wednesday, July 1.
In honor of the launching of our new website, the Seattle Sounders, Philadelphia Union and DC United have donated some great items from the last two US Open Cup championships. All you have to do is answer some US Open Cup trivia questions.
