No exact date or time has been announced, but all round of 16 matchups will be contested on June the 16th, 17th, and 20th.
Given the regional nature of the Open Cup, this will be the fourth straight year that the Union and Red Bulls have met in the competition. New York advanced on penalties at Red Bull Arena last year, but the Union got the better of them in the two years prior. John McCarthy’s heroics at RBA in 2015 memorably forced the game into penalties, where he saved Lloyd Sam’s attempt and put his team through to the semifinals.
