The United States Soccer Federation has announced a tweaked format for its marquee domestic club competition, the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup.
A source has told TheCup.us that the 2015 US Open Cup Final will be broadcast live on either Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports 2 as part of a new deal between Fox and the United States Soccer Federation and Soccer United Marketing.
“Back where we belong” said New York Pancyprian Freedoms Manager George Halkidis after their 1-0 win over Lansdowne Bhoys in the Eastern New York US Open Cup Qualifying Final. It was an appropriate statement for a club that has won the national competition three times in the past (1980, 1982, 1983).
The 2014 Final will be just the ninth time the Philadelphia area has been the site of the championship game, 10 if you include the one played in Bethlehem, Pa. in 1915. We take a closer look at all 10 of those Finals that make up Eastern Pennsylvania’s rich soccer history.
The Bays are the first Maryland-based team to win the USASA Open Cup Championship since the Baltimore Colts FC won the title back in 2005.
