Open Cup Overview

In case you're new around here, here's a brief overview of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

First played in 1914, the Open Cup is the U.S.'s oldest ongoing national soccer tournament and it's open to any professional or amateur team affiliated with U.S. Soccer. Basically, a team from any league in the country can compete (separate to its respective league play) in hopes of making it all the way through the single-game-knockout competition to reach the final. In all, the Open Cup features eight rounds (First Round, Second Round, Third Round, Round of 32, Round of 16, etc).

This year, only eight MLS entered the Open Cup: FC Dallas, Atlanta United FC, Houston Dynamo FC, Los Angeles FC, Real Salt Lake, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders FC, and Sporting Kansas City.

FC Dallas in the Open Cup

FC Dallas is one of the most successful MLS teams in U.S. Open Cup history having won the tournament twice (1997 and 2016) and twice finished as runners-up (2005 and 2007). In 1999, the tournament was renamed in honor of Lamar Hunt for his immense contributions to growing soccer in the U.S. This year, the club has reached the Round of 16 after defeating Memphis 901 FC 1-0 in the Round of 32 thanks to a goal from rookie Logan Farrington.

Fun Fact: FCD Legend and Club Ambassador Kenny Cooper is the second-top scorer in modern Open Cup history (1995-present) with 13 goals, three behind Sébastien Le Toux's 16.

All-Time Open Cup Record: 38-23-6
All-Time Open Cup Home Record: 24-7-3
All-Time Open Cup Away Record: 14-16-3

Rematch with Sporting Kansas City

FC Dallas has a chance for redemption against Sporting Kansas City at the Open Cup's quarterfinal stage. The clubs just met in MLS play on Sunday, July 7 with SKC earning a 3-2 victory. It was a dissapointing loss from Dallas' perspective having scored two unanswered goals to bring themselves level at 2-2 midway through the second half. It wasn't enough for a point, however, as SKC's Memo Rodriguez fired home the winner in the 82nd minute and condemned FCD to an eighth road defeat of the season. Now, just three days later, Dallas will look for revenge. For what it's worth, FCD interim head coach Peter Luccin made it pretty clear that he's prioritizing the upcoming quarterfinal clash by making six changes to his starting XI Sunday night. So, you can expect a full-strength lineup on Wednesday with a spot in the Open Cup semifinal on the line.
