Potential D.C. United US Open Cup Opponents Revealed

7

DC United will face either the Dulles Sportsplex Aegean Hawks or the Richmond Kickers, a familiar old foe from the days where we didn't buy our way into a home game every time. The game will take place Tuesday, May 29th, but the venue is up in the air. If the Aegean Hawks - an elite local amateur team - can pull the upset, United will host the game at the Maryland Soccerplex. If the Kickers advance, however, United's streak of 752 11 straight home Open Cup games (it's 15 - yes, fifteen - if you count the MLS qualifying rounds) would come to an end. US Soccer now holds a blind draw for hosting rights for anyone willing to pay a much smaller hosting fee, and if the game is Kickers vs. United, it will take place at the Richmond City Stadium. United will enter the tournament in the 3rd round - meaning 5 wins from lifting a 13th trophy, as well as a spot in the 2013-2014 CONCACAF Champions League. The 2nd round game that will determine our opponent will be played Tuesday, May 22nd, at the Maryland Soccerplex. Oddly, the Dulles Sportsplex Aegean Hawks will be hosting. Yeah, I don't get it either. It also means that, apparently, both United and the Aegean Hawks are using the same venue for early-round Open Cup games, which is the first time I've heard of such a thing.
