2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Schedule, Format and Other Key Dates:

Fourth Qualifying Round – April 6 & 7

First Round Pairings Announced – April 10

Second Round Pairings & Possible Pairings Announced – April 17

First Round – May 7 & 8*

  • Number of Games: 19
  • Participants: 32 Open Division teams and six Division III (USL League One) clubs
  • Competition: Teams will be paired geographically with the restriction that teams from the same qualifying pool (i.e. local qualifiers, NPSL, USL League Two, USL League One) cannot be paired to play each other. The restriction may be disregarded if doing so avoids extensive travel on balance for the participating teams.

Second Round – May 14 & 15*

  • Number of Games: 22
  • Participants: 19 First Round winners and 25 Division II (USL Championship) clubs
  • Competition: After the First Round pairings are made, each pairing will be matched geographically to a specific Division II team, with the First Round winner playing the assigned Division II side. The six remaining Division II squads will be paired to play each other, with these pairings also made geographically.

Third Round – May 29*

  • Number of Games: 11
  • Participants: 22 Second Round winners play each other
  • Competition: After each Second Round matchup has been determined, the Second Round pairs will be bracketed geographically to create the Third Round matchups, with the Second Round winners playing each other.

Fourth Round Draw – May 30

  • The 11 Third Round winners and 21 Division I (Major League Soccer) clubs will be divided geographically into eight groups of four, with teams who are precluded from playing each other until the Final per tournament regulations (i.e. pro teams and their affiliated Open Division sides) placed in different groups. Each group will have at least one and no more than two Third Round winners, with pairs drawn randomly but done so that each Third Round winner faces an MLS team.

Fourth Round – June 12*

  • Number of Games: 16
  • Participants: 11 Third Round winners and 21 Division I (MLS) clubs.
  • Competition: Eleven games will be between Third Round winners and MLS teams, while the remaining five matchups will be MLS vs. MLS affairs.

Round of 16 Draw – June 13

  • The Fourth Round winners will be divided geographically (regardless of league affiliation) into groups of four, with teams who are precluded from playing each other until the Final per tournament regulations (i.e. pro teams and their affiliated Open Division sides) placed in different groups. A random draw will determine the pairings within each group, resulting in a fixed bracket for the remainder of the tournament. Should a precluded pair of teams reach the Semifinal Round and be scheduled to face each other, the matches will be re-drawn after the Quarterfinal Round to avoid this outcome.

Round of 16 – June 19* (also June 18-23 if home team chooses and visiting team has at least three non-game days on each side of chosen date, with any overlap of U.S. MNT Gold Cup games on June 18 and June 22 disallowed)

  • Number of Games: 8
  • Competition: Fourth Round winners face each other as determined by the Round of 16 Draw.

Quarterfinals – July 10*

Draw to Determine Hosts for Semifinals and Final – July 11

Semifinals – August 7*

Final – August 27 or 28

* Any game from the Fourth Round through to the Semifinal Round where one of the participants has a league game the following Friday will be moved up a day (exception to this occurs when the team's opponent is scheduled for a league game the preceding Sunday; in this case, the provisions in the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Handbook to determine the match date will prevail). In addition, any game chosen by U.S. Soccer to be broadcast nationally in any round is subject to being moved up a day. The Commissioner has the authority to set outside of the confirmed schedule the date for any match if such a change is in the best interests of the tournament.

So it's exactly like the FA Cup :ph34r:

My family's local team (and therefore mine) New Mexico United knocked out MLS side Colorado Rapids last night to be one of only 2 USL sides in the round of 16. Very proud of what the team's been able to achieve in their short existence so far.

Yeah - we've gotten royally screwed in this competition for 2 straight years. Last year we had to play in Kennesaw and this year we drew Charlston away, but their field was unplayable Tuesday night so now we are having to play Kennesaw, behind closed doors. 

Disgusting.

Behind closed doors to stop it being a "home game" for you? It's just the state of soccer in your country mate. We're not allowed to play any home cup matches because the agreement with the Albuquerque Isotopes to use their stadium covers league matches only. Bit of a shock coming from a European background

No - the reason they are using is that there wasn't enough notice (24hrs) to do tickets and staff/security. 

Still seems like B.S.

Romario might be the worst player in the MLS. Unreal how he still gets a spot on this team.

Aye, Charleston Battery is no joke... they just defeated my local team Legion FC(Birmingham). I haven't been to a game but my friend has but I'm sure I will eventually go to one since the home games are played in the new UAB soccer facilities (about 45 minutes from my house IF 280 doesnt have bad traffic). There is potential here for a proper soccer team but they have to add a few Hispanics players to attract more fans. A few from Ghana, japan, Canada, and even an Englishman from Birmingham, England. xD

Sadly, this just isn't a competition that anyone but the smaller clubs take seriously. Especially at this stage. 

While I hate the idea of losing, doing so wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

Incredible. New Mexico came from behind to beat Dallas 2-1. Minnesota up next in the quarter finals

Take nothing away from this New Mexico side, but it was a quite embarrassing effort off the field from Dallas. Had to play at SMU's place because of a Gold Cup match at Toyota Stadium, but attendance was less than 1,500 (capacity 4,000) and it felt like a significant chunk of that was NM fans.

Yeah - MLS clubs don't take this seriously yet. We are playing these matches at Kennesaw State, and will likely have an attendance of around 5k.
