Real Salt Lake will play Sporting Kansas City in 2018 Open Cup

RSL’s 2018 Open Cup journey begins June 6.

Thursday morning, US Soccer unveiled the Fourth Round of the 2018 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. Real Salt Lake will host Sporting Kansas City, 2017 USOC champions, at Rio Tinto Stadium on June 6 at 8pm. It’s one of four all-MLS matchups in the round – New York Red Bulls-New York City FC, Columbus Crew-Chicago Fire, and Portland Timbers-San Jose Earthquakes.

The June 6 tilt is in the middle of a tough stretch for Salt Lake. The Utah side will play five matches in two weeks, spanning March 26-June 9.

Last year, a Monarchs heavy RSL crashed out of the Cup in the Fourth Round, 4-1 to Sacramento Republic. The Claret-and-Cobalt are 11-12-3 all-time in Open Cup play with a -1 goal differential.
