LA Galaxy to Host Orange County FC in Fourth Round of 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup

LOS ANGELES (Thursday, May 30, 2019) – The LA Galaxy are set to host NPSL side Orange County FC at Dignity Health Sports Park Track & Field Stadium on Wednesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. PT in the Fourth Round of the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, the longest-standing domestic tournament in the country. 

Tickets to the Fourth Round matchup, along with any 2019 U.S. Open Cup match hosted at Dignity Health Sports Park, are included in the 2019 LA Galaxy Season Ticket Membership. Tickets are on sale now at www.lagalaxy.com/tickets. Parking to the match is free.

The pools created for the Fourth Round Draw will have no bearing on the pairings for the Round of 16, as new geographic pools of four (without regard to division) will be created from the Fourth Round winners to determine the Round of 16 and possible Quarterfinal match-ups. The Round of 16 Draw will take place Thursday, June 13.

The Galaxy have recorded a 34-18-0 all-time record in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. They have entered the Open Cup every year since 1999, winning the tournament in 2001 and 2005 while reaching the Open Cup Final on two other occasions. Last year, the Galaxy advanced to Round of 16 before falling to the Portland Timbers on the road. 

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 over 100 consecutive years dating from 1914. In 1999, the competition was renamed to honor American soccer pioneer Lamar Hunt.

The LA Galaxy return to Dignity Health Sports Park this Sunday, June 2 when they host the New England Revolution in an MLS contest (7:30 p.m. PT; Spectrum SportsNet).
