Third Qualifying Round for 2017 Open Cup Rescheduled, Second Qualifying Round Nears End

CHICAGO (Oct. 24, 2016) – The U.S. Soccer Federation announced Monday that the third round of Open Division Local Qualifying for the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup has been rescheduled. Originally set to be played on Nov. 19-20, 2016, the third qualifying round will take place on March 11-12, 2017, the set of dates originally set aside for the fourth qualifying round. If necessary, the fourth qualifying round will now take place on the weekend that had been previously reserved for the fifth qualifying round (April 8-9, 2017).

The matchups for the third qualifying round will be announced in mid-January along with the complete format for the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

Additionally, the tournament schedule for the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup will take place as follows:

In addition, any game chosen by U.S. Soccer to be broadcast nationally is subject to being moved up a day.

^ For the Quarterfinal round, teams may apply to change the match date within a window that runs between July 7-16 if both teams in a match are not scheduled otherwise.

Second Qualifying Round Nearly Complete; Two Games Rescheduled Due to Weather

A majority of games in the second qualifying round for the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup was completed over the weekend, though severe weather caused Sunday’s matches between Santa Ana Winds FC and La Máquina FC as well as LA Wolves FC and Inland Empire FC to be postponed. Dates, times and locations for the two rescheduled matches will be announced later this week @OpenCup on Twitter.
