The Tampa Bay Rowdies will host Major League Soccer's Colorado Rapids in the third round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup this Tuesday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. at Al Lang Stadium in downtown St. Petersburg. Colorado, one of the 10 founding clubs of Major League Soccer, won the MLS Cup for the first time in 2010.
Tickets for the match start as low as just $10. Fans can purchase tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling the front office at 813-287-1539 or by clicking here.

If the Rowdies defeat Colorado this Tuesday night at Al Lang Stadium, Tampa Bay would travel to play at the winner of Sporting KC and Orlando City on Tuesday, June 5 in the fourth round.
The 99th edition of the U.S. Open Cup includes a 64-team field, which represents the largest in the modern era (1995 to present), eclipsing the previous record of 42 teams set in 2005 and 2006. All Division I, II and III professional clubs are participating in the tournament proper for the first time ever.
The opening portion of the U.S. Open Cup schedule occurs in rapid fashion as the first four rounds take place in back-to-back weeks from May 15 to June 5. The quarterfinals are set for June 26, the semifinals for July 10, and the final for August 7 or 8.
The Rowdies return to NASL action this Friday, May 25 when they host Minnesota on Military Appreciation Night at 7:30 p.m. at Al Lang Stadium in downtown St. Petersburg. For ticket information, call 813-287-1539.
