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.
How did we get here?
Inter Miami advanced to the Round of 32 after defeating Miami FC on penalties on the road in the Third Round of the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday. The match saw striker Shanyder Borgelin tally his second goal since being promoted to the Club’s First Team, while defender Ryan Sailor scored his first professional goal.

This match will only be the second-ever Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup played in DRV PNK Stadium history. In last year’s edition, the Club defeated South Georgia Tormenta in an exciting 3-1 victory on May 10.
What happens if Inter Miami wins in the Round of 32?
As mentioned above, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is a single-elimination tournament, so participating teams play until they lose.

What is at stake?
