How To Watch, Listen To The U.S. Open Cup Final Between Sac Republic and Orlando City SC
On Wednesday, Sept. 7, the Sac Republic takes on the MLS Orlando City SC in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup championship.
A win against Orlando City SC in the finals of the Lamar Hunt Open Cup would mean Sacramento defeated four straight MLS teams — San Jose Earthquakes, LA Galaxy and Sporting Kansas City were the first three — in the tournament. The last time a USL team won the tournament was in 1999 when the Rochester Rhinos bested the Colorado Rapids. This is the first time a USL team has reached the finals since 2008.
