ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (April 11, 2018) — The United States Soccer Federation revealed pairings for the Second Round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday, indicating which teams the Tampa Bay Rowdies could face in their first match of the tournament.

The Rowdies will face either SIMA Aguilas (PDL), Jacksonville Armada FC (NPSL) or The Villages SC (PDL) in the Second Round on Wednesday, May 16. 

The Villages will play Jacksonville in a play-in round match in the next few weeks, with the winner advancing to face SIMA in the First Round Proper. The winner of that match will advance to face the Rowdies.

Should Tampa Bay’s opponent end up being The Villages SC, the Rowdies will host the match at Al Lang Stadium. If either SIMA or Jacksonville advance to meet the Rowdies in the Second Round, the Rowdies would be on the road for that match.
