The Lamar Hunt United States Open Cup 2012

Extreme Makeover
Under new format, it's all in for MLS teams in 99th edition of USOC



Get ready for a US Open Cup like you’ve never seen it before.

The US Soccer Federation on Wednesday unveiled an expanded version of the domestic cup competition which will see all 16 US-based MLS clubs participating, a random selection process for home teams in select rounds and a champion crowned by the first week of August.

The MLS qualifying system employed in recent years has been scrapped and all 16 MLS teams eligible for participation – the three Canadian teams play in the Nutrilite Canadian Championship – will join the competition in the third round.

A total of 64 teams – a record number in the modern era of the USOC – will feature 32 professional teams, including all six NASL teams and all 10 USL PRO teams, as well as another 32 from the amateur ranks of the USASA (nine qualifiers), PDL (16 qualifiers), NPSL (6.5 qualifiers) and US Club Soccer (0.5 qualifiers).

USOC Roundup:
7 MLS sides tumble in third-round action



It was a grim night for many MLS sides in US Open Cup play, as seven of the 14 sides in action were knocked out by lower-league opposition at the first time of asking. New England, LA, Chicago, Columbus, FC Dallas, Houston and Real Salt Lake will all watch the rest of the competition unfold from the sidelines, while D.C. and San Jose also endured close calls, but emerged with victories.

However, a few teams, notably Philadelphia and New York, enjoyed comfortable wins, and will look forward to fourth-round action in a week's time.

USOC Roundup:
Seattle thump Cal FC; RBNY fall again



Tuesday night's US Open Cup fourth round provided more than its fair share of late dramatics, including a stoppage-time winer, another extra-time scoring outburst, and the three-time defending champs bringing Cinderella's ball to a painful end.

Here's how the evening went...
