Philadelphia Union To Face Ocean City Nor'Easters In 3rd Round Of U.S. Open Cup

USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Union will host the Ocean City Nor'Easters next Tuesday at PPL Park in the U.S. Open Cup.

Thanks to a shocking upset tonight in Ocean City, the Philadelphia Union will play host to the nearby Ocean City Nor'easters in the 3rd round of the U.S. Open Cup May 28 at PPL Park.

The Ocean City Nor'easters upset the Pittsburgh Riverhounds 1-0 in a thrilling second round match to ensure advancement in the 100th U.S. Open Cup.

The Nor'easters are a member of the USL Premier Development League. In fact, they share a division with Philadelphia Union affiliate Reading United, who also advanced to the Round of 32 of the U.S. Open Cup by defeating Harrisburg City Islanders, the Union's USL Professional Division affilliate. Reading United will face New York Red Bulls in the 3rd round of the USOC.

It is currently unknown if the Union's match against Ocean City Nor'easters will be televised or not, although presumably the match will at the very least be streamed on the Philadelphia Union's official web site.

The eventual winner of the U.S. Open Cup will receive a $250,000 cash prize and a berth into the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League.
