The link to the full U.S. Soccer press release is here. For the uninitiated, the U.S. Open Cup is a knockout-style soccer tournament for just about every soccer club in the U.S., and is one of the oldest cup-style soccer competitions in the world, believe it or not. It’s got a great and colorful history, which you should google, wikipedia, or check out at www.thecup.us if you’ve got some time.
We won’t know whom we will play or where the match will be played until much later, but we’re excited about the prospect of doing well in our first ever USOC!
