    This is the 105th US Open Cup, making it one of the oldest club soccer competitions in the world. I love this tournament. It was better when NASL was around and so there were more levels to it, and there are things they could do to make it better, but it’s still a really great event.

    When tiny Christos FC from Baltimore scored to take an early 1-0 lead last season, I’ve never heard a noise quite like it. Really great to see a few minnows do some eating.

    @Getslow,

    Any idea if the FCC would be a home game?

    US Soccer’s website says it’s in Cincinnati and will take place at UC’s soccer stadium, not at Nippert. Don’t know if that could change.

    Thanks! Guess that means they don't really expect a crowd for the early round(s).
