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.
What happens if Inter Miami wins in the Round of 16?
As mentioned above, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is a single-elimination tournament, so participating teams play until they lose. If Inter Miami wins its Round of 16 matchup, the team will advance to the quarterfinals, which is set to be played on June 6 and 7.
