The Philadelphia Union will host a U.S. Open Cup match Tuesday night for the first time in franchise history. Though the Union's meeting with the USL's Rochester Rhinos will not be televised, it can be viewed online at PhiladelphiaUnion.com where the Union will post live streaming of the event beginning at 7:35 p.m.
The U.S. Open Cup expanded this year to include all 64 United States professional soccer clubs, leaving all Major League Soccer teams with a bye into the third round. That's how the Union find themselves hosting the third round despite never having won a single match in the tournament.
The Union failed to register a win in either of their first two trips to the U.S. Open Cup. They lost to the New York Red Bulls 2-1 in 2010 and fell 2-1 to DC United last year in penalty kicks.
