Today was an exciting day in the United States if you are a fan of the US Open Cup (and why wouldn't you be) as Boulder, Colorado based Harpo's FC learned their fate for the first round of the 2016 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup.  In addition to their first round opponent, we also learned possible second round matchups:

Harpo's FC at Albuquerque Sol FC (USLPDL)

Match Date/Time: Wednesday, 11 May 2016 (Time TBD)

Venue: St. Pius X High School--Albuquerque, New Mexico

How to Watch options: To be determined

Should Harpo's FC win in New Mexico they would advance to the second round to take on Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC on Wednesday, 18 May 2016 (Time TBD) in Colorado Springs.

Our USL affiliate Charlotte Independence also learned their possible opponents in the second round (U.S. USL based teams enter in the second round).  That game will be played in Charlotte on May 18:

Charlotte Independence at Charlotte Eagles

Obviously we still have a over a month before the Cup kicks off, but this is exciting news for Harpo's FC, Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC and Charlotte Independence!
