For fans of the New York Cosmos, the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup probably carries quite a bit more meaning than it does for fans of most Major League Soccer sides. Unfortunately, the Cosmos went out of the competition in the fifth round for the second consecutive year, and tonight's final will be played between two MLS sides, the Philadelphia Union and Sporting Kansas City.
While watching a mid-table MLS side take on one of the league's weakest sides might not seem like a thrilling way to spend a Wednesday evening, the fact that there's a CONCACAF Champions League place on the line certainly makes this something many will tune in for. With that in mind, here's some useful information for those of you looking to watch this evening's match:
Teams: Philadelphia Union vs. Sporting Kansas City
