RSL to host US Open Cup third round, will face NASL or NPSL side

USA TODAY Sports

Real Salt Lake will officially host its third round match in US Open Cup play, and the opponent will be either Atlanta Silverbacks, an NASL side, or Georgia Revolution, an NPSL side — the fourth tier of American soccer.

The match could see a younger group playing, including a potential first-team debut of Enzo Martinez, who is expected to return to RSL for the match and surrounding reserves engagements. But given perennial troubles in the tournament, Jason Kreis may be tempted to field a full-strength lineup in the tournament — although that historically has had little effect.

RSL's Open Cup performances in the past have left much to be desired, with the club losing 3-1 to Minnesota Stars, an NASL side. Real Salt Lake management bought the hosting rights to that match, and the fans proved the decision at least somewhat a good one, with over 17,000 in attendance — a club record.

Winning would give RSL a berth into the CONCACAF Champions League, which is one of the club's long-stated goals.

The match is part of season ticket holder packages and will use the "Bonus Game A" ticket provided.
