Eight-Game Slate For 2024 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Round of 16 Finalized


U.S. Soccer today announced full match details for the 2024 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup’s Round of 16, which will feature five contests on Tuesday, May 21, and finish with a trio of tilts on Wednesday, May 22. The ledger is highlighted by six contests pitting Major League Soccer (Division I) sides against foes from the USL Championship (Div. II) and two match-ups that will guarantee multiple lower division sides entry into the Quarterfinals.

Matchday 1 will see the lone remaining Division III representative, NYCFC II of MLS NEXT Pro, aim for a third consecutive win against competition from Division II’s USL Championship, this time against a New Mexico United (USL Championship, Div. II) side that bounced MLS’ Western Conference leader, Real Salt Lake, from the tourney on Wednesday.

The round’s opening night will conclude with two “Open Cup After Dark” donnybrooks in the Golden State, another cross-country affair pitting Los Angeles Football Club against Loudoun United FC in the City of Angels, and a NorCal clash between Sacramento Republic FC and the San Jose Earthquakes in California’s capital city. In between, two more MLS - USLC confrontations will take place – a southeastern showdown seeing Charleston Battery host 2019 Open Cup champion Atlanta United and a battle in the nation’s heartland between four-time Cup champs Sporting Kansas City and FC Tulsa.

Matchday 2’s fixture list begins at the Crossroads of America with Indy Eleven hosting its USL Championship archrival Detroit City FC in the Round of 16’s only intra-league affair. From there it’s more MLS-USLC action to close out the round, starting with the Tampa Bay Rowdies – fresh off an exhilarating 6-4 extra-time defeat of Birmingham Legion FC last night – hosting FC Dallas at the venerable Al Lang Stadium. The round will conclude in the Pacific Northwest where Seattle Sounders FC continue their trek for “one for the thumb” against Phoenix Rising FC.
