The US Open Cup Final: 1914-present

Posted by | September 30, 2011

The Dewar Trophy

The Lamar Hunt US Open Cup debuted as the National Challenge Cup in 1913, and crowned its first champion in 1914, and since then has had different names and a variety of formats, but it has remained the national championship for the sport of soccer in the United States for more than a century.

TheCup.us has compiled details from every championship game since the beginning, but the list required the help of a number of dedicated individuals. These details would not be possible if not for the research of Colin Jose, Roger Allaway, Dave Litterer, Aldo Benni and the dedicated staff at the National Soccer Hall of Fame. A great deal of this list has been put together by Jose and Allaway, two of the foremost historians of soccer in the United States and Canada.

Mr. Allaway was the historian for the National Soccer Hall of Fame, and Mr. Jose was his predecessor in that position. Additional information has been obtained through the American Soccer History Archives website maintained by Dave Litterer. TheCup.us lead researcher Chuck Nolan Jr. has managed to fill in some of the gaps in the information Jose and Allaway have researched, and are also working on compiling full results and match details with the help of all of those mentioned above.

Like all historical research, it is always a work in progress and is constantly being updated. Anyone interested in contributing to this research, please contact us HERE.

NOTE: The United States Football Association (USFA) decided that the replay would be held in the East, and the day after the Final between Paterson and Scullin. The St. Louis club announced they would not be able to field a team for the rematch. Oellerman, Brannigan, Mulvey and Rooney had departed for baseball training camps. Had the replay been held in St. Louis they could have made the Final, but a long trip back East was out of the question. On top of this, Scullin players Nolan, Bechtold and Bentley were injured. Instead of fielding an inferior team against Paterson, the Scullin management felt they had no choice but to relinquish their championship to Paterson.
