The remaining 32 teams in the 106th edition of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup learned their opponents for the Fourth Round.

The United States Soccer Federation announced the draw and schedule for the Fourth Round of the 106th edition of the tournament that will take place June 11-12. In Round 4, 11 winners of Round 3 will join the 21 Major League Soccer teams in 16 matches. All winners from the 3rd round were paired against a MLS team, leaving 5 matches for the 10 remaining MLS teams to pair up with. Teams were grouped into 8 regional groups of 4 teams. By rule, five groups contained 3 MLS teams and three groups contained 2 MLS teams. Teams were then randomly matched up from within their regional group.

The hosts for the First Round, and all future rounds, are determined by random selection. If both teams apply to host and both teams meet the federation’s minimum venue standards, then the home team is decided by random draw.

The winners from Round 4 will advance to the Round of 16 which is scheduled to be played June 19.

All games will be broadcast live on ESPN+ as part of the tournament’s new media rights agreement.
