The Round of 16 draw as held for the 2016 US Open Cup today and with that the Colorado Rapids learned their opponent for that round and where that match will take place.   The Rapids clinched their spot in the Round of 16 by knocking off Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC 1-0 on Tuesday night at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.  The Rapids were led by a late Dillon Serna goal and solid defensive play to see off a spirited Switchbacks side and with that victory the Rapids advanced to the Round of 16.

The Round of 16 is broken up into four geographical regions in the country, of which the Rapids were placed in the Plains Region (the three other regions are East, Central, and West) along with:

FC Dallas

Houston Dynamo

Sporting Kansas City

And for the match-ups:

Sporting Kansas City at Houston Dynamo

Colorado Rapids at FC Dallas

with the winner of the SKC v Houston game hosting the Rapids or FC Dallas

This means that the Rapids are on the road for the next two dates in the US Open Cup

The games are scheduled to be played on June 29.
