FC Dallas to host US Open Cup Quarterfinal match if they advance
By Buzz Carrick
FC Dallas begins US Open Cup play on Tuesday and if they advance the home town club will host their Quarterfinal match.
If FCD knocks off Orlando they will host their next match on July 12th at 8PM CT. FCD will host either Real Salt Lake (MLS) or another club that has previously caused them USOC heartache, the Wilmington Hammerheads (USL PRO).
In the 4th round of the 2003 USOC, Dallas traveled to Wilmington only to suffer a 4-1 beat down in torrential rain in a match sometimes cited as the biggest win in Hammerhead franchise history. Eddie Johnson scored the loan Dallas goal that day.
