The New York Cosmos will face the New York Red Bulls-this time in New Jersey in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Round of 16 on July 1, at 7:30 p.m. The matchup was determined this morning in a draw held by U.S. Soccer after the remaining 16 teams were grouped geographically after the conclusion of the fourth round on Wednesday evening.

The Red Bulls were drawn geographically into a group with the Cosmos and MLS rivals Philadelphia Union and D.C. United. The Union will host D.C. for the other match in the East group, and the winners of the two matches will meet in the quarterfinals in July.

The Cosmos pulled off one of just two upsets in the fourth round, defeating New York City FC on penalties on Wednesday evening at their home field on Hofstra University. The Red Bulls advanced with a complete 3-0 victory over the Atlanta Silverbacks, also of the NASL, on Tuesday night at Red Bull Arena

The two sides met in the fourth round of the 2014 Open Cup, with the Cosmos taking a 3-0 victory out on Long Island.
