Open to all affiliated amateur and professional teams in the United States, the annual U.S. Open Cup is a 98-year-old single-elimination tournament. The U.S. Open Cup is very similar to domestic cup competitions popular throughout Europe, South America and the rest of the world. Cup competitions, which usually run concurrent with a country’s league season, are open in the early stages to any club that can qualify, giving local amateur teams a chance to compete against the best teams a country has to offer. In 1999, the U.S. Open Cup was renamed the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup to honor the longtime soccer supporter and pioneer. Hunt, who died in 2006, was one of the sport’s first major ownership figures and is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame. His family continues to operate FC Dallas and the Columbus Crew in Major League Soccer. The winning team of the U.S. Open Cup has their name engraved on the Dewar Challenge Trophy, which has been permanently retired and remains at U.S. Soccer House in Chicago. HISTORY OF DEWAR CHALLENGE TROPHY: The oldest trophy in United States team sports history, the Dewar Challenge Trophy was donated to the American Amateur Football Association in 1912 by Sir Thomas R. Dewar, a British distiller, sportsman and philanthropist during an AAFA (now United States Amateur Soccer Association) visit to London before the 1912 Olympics. The trophy originally was purchased for $500 and given in the hope of promoting soccer in the United States and in the name of Anglo-American friendship. The cup was first awarded to the Yonkers Football Club (N.Y.) in 1912 after it defeated the Hollywood Inn Football Club (N.Y.) at the Lennox Oval in New York City. The trophy was officially adopted as the U.S. Open Cup trophy before the Brooklyn Field Club’s inaugural championship in 1914 in Pawtucket, R.I. The trophy was retired in 1979, but was refurbished by the USASA in 1997 and was presented to the 1997 and 1998 Open Cup winners, before returning to the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta, N.Y., in 1999. Starting in 2011, the trophy resides in the main trophy room at U.S. Soccer House in Chicago. When logistics permit, the still fragile trophy can be taken to the site of the cup final to display before the event for fans, and also for the winning team to rise for a night. HISTORY OF LAMAR HUNT U.S. OPEN CUP:


As the oldest annual team tournament in U.S. sports history, the U.S. Open Cup dates back to 1914 when the Brooklyn Field Club of the North American Foot Ball League (NAFBL) won the first national title by defeating the Brooklyn Celtics in Pawtucket, R.I. First instituted as the National Challenge Cup under the aegis of the United States Football Association (now U.S. Soccer), it was conceived as a competition open to all players (amateur and professional) and based upon England’s Football Association Cup format. During the Open Cup’s early years, teams sponsored by industry in the East’s urban centers dominated the competition. Bethlehem Steel of Pennsylvania (NAFBL) won four Open Cup titles between 1915 and 1919. Bethlehem Steel would make it five overall titles in 1926, while the American Soccer League’s Fall River Marksmen (Mass.) won four national crowns between 1924 and 1931. The Marksmen became the New Bedford Whalers in 1932 and captured their fifth Open Cup crown (tying Bethlehem Steel) that same year. The last team to capture five tournament titles was Los Angeles Maccabee SC (1973, 1975, 1977, 1978, 1981). Although there have been numerous back-to-back winners (eight overall by seven different teams), only the New York Greek-Americans, the Fall River Marksmen/New Bedford Whalers, St. Louis Stix, Baer and Fuller/St. Louis Central Breweries FC, and the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer have won three consecutive crowns. The Marksmen/New Bedford Whalers did it first from 1930-1932, while St. Louis Stix, Baer and Fuller/St. Louis Central Breweries FC followed them up with a treble of their own from 1933-1935. The GreekAmericans won three straight from 1967-1969 and Seattle Sounders FC became the fourth team when it lifted the trophy in 2011 after its 2010 and 2009 triumphs. While teams sponsored by industries in the East’s urban centers dominated the Men’s Open and Amateur Cups until the 1950s, the teams from the West and Midwest have flexed their muscles in the later years. California alone has garnered the lion’s share of success, winning 12 titles since 1973. Missouri, Illinois and Florida have also appeared regularly on the winner’s list. Although it is now a complete “knock-out” tournament, with a few exceptions the U.S. Open Cup final was a two-leg, home-and-away series between 1928 and 1968. Despite the prominence of the North American Soccer League from 1967 to 1984, NASL teams rarely showed the inclination to enter the U.S. Open Cup competition. Until the emergence of Major League Soccer, full professional teams were almost nonexistent in the competition. That has changed in the past two decades, though, with MLS taking part since 1996, thus helping to make the tournament a true “national” championship.

M at C h P r e V I e W seattle sounders FC began its quest for a record fourth straight lamar Hunt U.s. open Cup on May 30 with a 5-1 victory over the north american soccer league’s atlanta silverbacks at starfire. The pursuit continued a week later as the rave Green ousted the U.s. adult soccer association’s Cal FC, 5-0. seattle then traveled to san Francisco to take on the san Jose earthquakes in the quarterfinals, and came away with a 1-0 result at kezar stadium. In a rematch of 2010’s semifinals, sounders FC took down Chivas Usa, 4-1, to advance to their fourth straight final. seattle has been the highest scoring team of this year’s tournament, and has extended its unbeaten run in open Cup play to 18 games (17-0-1), dating back to april 28, 2009. sounders FC was dominant in the opening rounds, setting club records for largest margin of victory (five) and most goals scored in a half (five). The match against Cal FC also marked the first time two seattle players scored multiple goals in the same game as both osvaldo alonso and Fredy Montero netted a brace. alonso leads the team with four goals in the 2012 tournament. not only have the goals come frequently, but they have been scored in bunches. seattle scored five goals in 22 minutes against atlanta and tallied five in just 20 minutes against Cal FC. In the quarterfinal match, Cordell Cato scored his first goal as seattle advanced, 1-0, in a hard-fought match against san Jose that earned them their seventh shutout in open Cup play. osvaldo alonso scored his fourth goal of the tournament and added an assist in a 4-1 trouncing of Chivas Usa in the semifinals, improving its record against Mls sides to 13-0-0 all-time in the tournament. sounders FC now sets its sights on sporting kC in the final Wednesday night, marking the fourth straight year the seattle club has made the finals. This marks the second time sounders FC has met kansas City in the open Cup. seattle defeated the kansas City Wizards,1-0, in the 2009 quarterfinals at starfire sports stadium. The 99th edition of the U.s. open Cup includes a 64-team field, which represents the largest pool in the modern era (1995present). all Division I, II and III professional clubs are participating in the tournament proper for the first time ever.

The Usl-1 sounders reached that stage in both 2007 (against FC Dallas) and 2008 (Charleston). prior to the sounders FC victory over D.C. United in 2009, the only seattle club to qualify for an open Cup final was the amateur Mitre eagles in 1987. The eagles fell to Club espana of Washington, D.C., on penalties following a scoreless draw. While the nasl sounders did not participate in the open Cup, the a-league sounders competed on an annual basis, beginning in 1995. They lost to el paso in the semifinals that season, and also advanced to the final four in 1996.

The past three years have supplied countless memories for the sounders FC faithful, and perhaps the greatest times have been had in the open Cup tournament. The 2009 title run included roger levesque’s first-minute goal at portland followed by an unforgettable celebration, late goals from nate Jaqua and stephen king to advance past Houston in extra time, and an emotional win in the final at D.C. United. In 2010 Jaqua netted five goals in four games to earn player of the Tournament honors, and sanna nyassi finished off the championship run with a brace in the final against the Columbus Crew. last season it was Fredy Montero who stole the show, netting three game-winners in the final three matches, and osvaldo alonso put the icing on the cake with a wonderfully crafted goal in stoppage time in the final against Chicago. overall, seattle has gone 17-0-1 in open Cup play, outscoring its opponents 43-10. 2009 u.S. oPen CuP date opp. result Score Goals 4/28/09 rsl W 4-1 sea: le Toux (24, 55), nyassi (26), king (53); rsl: Johnson (32) 5/26/09 Col W 1-0 sea: Forrest (61) 7/01/09 at por W 2-1 sea: levesque (1), king 27; por: keita (43) 7/07/09 kC W 1-0 sea: le Toux (89) 7/21/09 HoU W 2-1 sea: Jaqua (89), king (94); HoU: akinbiyi (32) 9/02/09 at DC W 2-1 sea: Montero (67), levesque (86); DC: simms (89) record: 6-0 (outscored opponents 12-4) 2010 u.S. oPen CuP date opp. result Score Goals 6/30/10 at por D 1-1 (4-3) sea: Jaqua (13); por: Dike (38) 7/07/10 la W 2-0 sea: Jaqua (50, 62) 9/01/10 CHV W 3-1 sea: Jaqua (10, 92+), Montero (58); CHV: padilla (68) 10/5/10 ClB W 2-1 sea: nyassi (38, 66); ClB: Burns (24) record: 3-0-1 (outscored opponents 8-2) 2011 u.S. oPen CuP date opp. result Score Goals 6/28/11 kIT W 2-1 sea: Fucito (39, 62); kIT: Besagno (71) 7/13/11 la W 3-1 sea: Jaqua (3), Montero (25), neagle (74); la: Cristman (40) 8/30/11 Dal W 1-0 sea: Montero (40) 10/4/11 CHI W 2-0 sea: Montero (78), alonso (96+) record: 4-0 (outscored opponents 8-2)
