This deal features all of the matches in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Everything from the first round kickoffs featuring amateur and division III teams until the final in September.

With the rise of Major League Soccer over the last 15 to 20 years, the teams from America’s top flight have something of a stranglehold over the competition. The last time a team from outside MLS even played in the final of the U.S. Open Cup came in 2008. That year, USL side Charleston Battery reached the final, eventually losing to D.C. United. Interestingly, Charleston knocked off two MLS sides, and Seattle Sounders in its last year in USL.

The last time a non-MLS side won the competition came in 1999. The Rochester Rhinos, now known as MLS Next Pro club Rochester New York FC, defeated the Colorado Rapids, 2-0. Truly it is somewhat similar to the FA Cup, which saw its last non-EPL side in a final in 2008 as well. However, the last non-top-flight side to win the FA Cup was West Ham United back in 1980.

Watching the U.S. Open Cup

For many years, the U.S. Open Cup TV schedule was hard to come by. With so many teams involved an an array of broadcasters and channels, the tournament lost some of its vigor.

However, ESPN and U.S. Soccer came to a three-year agreement in 2019 providing coverage of the tournament. That three-year deal runs through the 2022 competition, the 109th edition in its history.
