The Philadelphia Union have a chance to host the U.S. Open Cup final if they are able to defeat Sporting Kansas City and if Chivas USA can defeat the Seattle Sounders.

The Philadelphia Union have an outside chance of hosting the final of the U.S. Open Cup according to a report from Jonathan Tannenwald of Philly.com.

In order for the Union to host the final at PPL Park, they would have to first defeat Sporting Kansas City in their U.S. Open Cup semifinal on July 11 at PPL Park. Then the Union would have to hope that Chivas USA defeats the Seattle Sounders in the other semifinal.

If the Union and Chivas USA are able to win their matches, the final would be held at PPL Park either on August 7 or 8 at a time to be determined. If Seattle is able to beat Chivas, they would host their third consecutive final at CenturyLink Field on August 8.

If Sporting Kansas City is able to defeat the Union, they would automatically host the final at Livestrong Sporting Park on either August 7 or 8.
