The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, recognized as U.S. Soccer’s National Club Championship, is an annual competition open to all amateur and professional soccer teams affiliated with U.S. Soccer. The tournament has crowned a champion for 101 consecutive years dating from 1914. In 1999, the competition was renamed to honor American soccer pioneer Lamar Hunt.

This year’s winner will earn a berth into the 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions League and have its name engraved on the historic Dewar Challenge Trophy, one of the oldest nationally contested trophies in American team sports.

The Cosmos entered their first U.S. Open Cup in 2014 and recorded back-to-back wins – over the Brooklyn Italians (2-0) at Belson Stadium and the New York Red Bulls (3-0) at Shuart Stadium – before falling 2-1 on the road to Philadelphia in extra time.
