US Open Cup Draw Announced

The US Soccer Federation today announced the first round pairings for the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup, which has been held every year since 1914. MLS clubs will enter the competition in Round 3. The most intriuging first round matchups are both being held June 12th. The first game to keep an eye on features an intra state match between the Rochester Rhinos who most recently won this event in 1999 and the Long Island Rough Riders who have had much success in the early rounds of this event over the past ten years. The other matchup I would watch is between the Central Florida Kraze, a very talented PDL side and the Charleston Battery who like Rochester have a history of beating MLS clubs in this competition.
