Rapids To Host U.S. Open Cup Match

No, that's not a typo.  For the first time in 7 years the Colorado Rapids will host a U.S. Open Cup match.  The draw for the 4th Round was made today and the Rapids will host the winner of the 3rd round matchup between Orlando City and the Tampa Bay Rowdies.  Tampa Bay features both Matt Pickens and Anthony Wallace, so there would be some interesting storylines if the Rowdies beat Orlando.  The game will be held during the week of June 10th-18th, details and ticket options are still to be announced.

The last time the Rapids hosted a USOC match was a 3-1 win over the now defunct California Victory in the 3rd round on July 10th, 2007.  Colorado traveled to Seattle in the next round and got beat-down 5-0.
