The Lamar Hunt United States Open Cup 2011

2011 U.S. Open Cup Schedule Announced


The 2011 edition of the U.S. Open Cup will get underway on June 14 with 16 first-round games. Five rounds of play precede the Oct. 4 final. The more than 155 teams that entered the competition beginning in the initial stages will be narrowed to 40 teams for the tournament proper by the May 30 qualifying deadline.

The first and second rounds will be made up of USL PRO and amateur teams and will be played on June 14 and June 21, respectively, with eight teams advancing to play eight MLS teams on June 28 in the third round. The quarterfinals will be played on July 12 and the semifinals will be played on Aug. 30. All 2011 U.S. Open Cup matches will be played on Tuesdays.

The tournament has crowned a champion for 97 consecutive years beginning in 1914. Every winning team’s name is engraved on the base of the Dewar Challenge Trophy, which dates to the first year of the tournament and currently resides at U.S. Soccer House in Chicago.

The two-time defending champion Seattle Sounders will enter the tournament in the third round and will be the first team since 1984 with a chance of winning three consecutive U.S. Open Cup titles. The New York Greek-Americans (1967-69) were the only other team to accomplish this feat.

Like recent editions, the U.S. Open Cup is a single-elimination tournament, with games tied after regulation extended by two 15-minute overtime halves. If a winner is not determined in overtime, advancement will be determined by kicks from the penalty spot.

The 2011 champion will earn $100,000 cash, while the runner-up will collect $50,000. The top USL PRO and amateur clubs will each receive a $10,000 prize. No Division II teams will participate in the 2011 U.S. Open Cup.

Nice to see a USL team prospering in cup full of MLS teams. If only the MLS could just insert a promotion/relegation system into their system. If they don't want to do a straight up 3 out/3 in (or something like that) they could do a play-off with the worst MLS and best USL team. But, anyways, back on topic .In the semifinals, not matter what draw they get. As for Richmond, they can only lose to LA and maybe the other two team. It'd probably be a very even game.
