Game Preview: New England Revolution at New York Red Bulls
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution will travel south to face the New York Red Bulls in the Fourth Round of the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday, June 11 at MSU Soccer Park on the campus of Montclair State University in New Jersey. The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be streamed live for subscribers on ESPN+.
This will mark the fifth all-time U.S. Open Cup meeting between New England and New York, as the Revolution own a 1-3-0 all-time record in the tournament series. The sides most recently met in the 2017 edition of the domestic cup, with New York claiming a 1-0 win in the Quarterfinal. The Revs and Red Bulls also met in the 2013 Fourth Round (a 4-2 win for New England), the 2010 Play-in Round (a 3-0 win for New York), and the 2003 Quarterfinal (a 2-1 win for New York).
Overall, the Revs are 20-16-5 in 41 total games in the competition, including a 7-11-2 mark in away matches and a 7-11-1 record against MLS opposition. In 2007, New England defeated FC Dallas in the Open Cup Final, 3-2, to secure the team's first Open Cup trophy. The club also reached the Final in 2016, but fell to FC Dallas. Most recently in 2018, the Revolution lost to Louisville City FC in the U.S. Open Cup Fourth Round.
Dating back to 1914, the U.S. Open Cup is the oldest cup competition in United States soccer and is among the oldest in the world. Open to all affiliated amateur and professional teams in the United States, the annual U.S. Open Cup is a single-elimination tournament. The winner of the U.S. Open Cup receives a bid to the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League, an annual tournament between the top clubs from North America, Central America, and The Caribbean. Concacaf Champions League's winner is awarded a spot in the FIFA Club World Cup.
Following Tuesday's Open Cup match, New England will return to MLS regular season play at home on June 26 when the Revs host the Philadelphia Union. That match begins at 7:00 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium and will air locally on NBC Sports Boston, 98.5 The Sports Hub, and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
