2022 U.S. Open Cup

About the U.S. Open Cup

The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is the oldest ongoing national soccer competition in the U.S. The 2022 edition will be contested by multiple clubs from professional and amateur leagues. The NPSL enters the tournament-proper in the First Round, while Major League Soccer enters at the Third and Fourth Rounds. The overall champion earns a total of $300,000 in prize money, while the runner-up receives $100,000, and the furthest-advancing team from each division receives $25,000. In addition, the tournament winner qualifies for the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League.

Qualification for the U.S. Open Cup varies by league. The NPSL chose to use results from the 2021 season to determine seedings for the 2022 U.S. Open Cup. There are a total of 10 NPSL teams that participate in the 2022 U.S. Open Cup’s tournament proper.
