US Open Cup: Fourth Round Possibilities

Gene Sweeney Jr.

The Portland Timbers will enter the 2014 US Open Cup in the fourth round in mid-June. Today the draw for the fourth round was made and we know the two possible outcomes.

Today US Soccer announced the draw and potential pairings for the fourth round of this years US Open Cup. The 16 US based MLS teams will enter in this round and face off against the 16 third round winners.

For the Timbers this means playing the winner of the Orlando City U-23s vs Charleston Battery match on May 28th. Charleston is hosting the match and if they win they get to host the Portland Timbers. If the Orlando City U-23 squad pulls off the upset, we will host them.

The date has yet to be determined, but the game will occur in mid-June between the 10th and the 18th. 

To see how the draw occurred today, check out this post from Jeff Crandall.

Here is the news release from US Soccer:

CHICAGO (May 16, 2014) – U.S. Soccer has announced the fourth-round possible pairings for the 2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. The fourth round will mark the opening stage of the tournament for the 16 domestic Major League Soccer (Division I) clubs, each of whom will be matched against a third-round winner.

The fourth round will take place June 10-18, leaving the possibility for a number of early-round weekend games, a first in the modern era of the tournament (1995 to present). Home teams will determine the exact dates from among the visiting teams’ available dates. The exact schedule will be announced next week.

Results from the third round on May 27-28 will determine the matchups and venues for the fourth round. Home teams are determined by a random selection process among those clubs that have applied to host and whose venues meet the minimum tournament requirements. The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup fourth round draw process took place Friday morning at U.S. Soccer House.
