What is the U.S. Open Cup?
The Lamar Hunt U.S Open Cup is a knockout competition that crowns the top fútbol club in the United States. The tournament was first named as an annual championship at the end of the 1913-14 season. Teams from any division in the country can compete in the tournament, such as MLS teams, MLS NEXT Pro teams, USL teams, NPSL teams, and amateur teams.
The Lamar Hunt U.S Open Cup operates similarly to other domestic cups worldwide such as, the FA Cup in England, the Copa Del Rey in Spain, the Coppa Italia in Italy, and the DFB-Pokal in Germany.

If Inter Miami wins its Round of 32 matchup, the team will advance to the Round of 16 set to be played on May 23 and 24, and face an opponent that will be determined in a draw on May 11.
