Cosmos win appeal, have chance at cup glory

Empire of Soccer

The New York Cosmos will participate in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup this season, after they won their appeal to the USSF. Fellow NASL teams Miami FC and the Jacksonville Armada will also participate in the competition.

New York will enter the competition in the play-in round beginning May 5th or 6th, likely playing against another NPSL team or a PDL side.

In the club’s official statement, Rocco Commisso said the following:

Participation in the US Open Cup means so much to Cosmos supporters, as it is a chance for team to potentially test their might against MLS talents such as NYCFC (who the Cosmos are currently undefeated against) and the New York Red Bulls. It will be interesting to see how this competition will affect the assembling of the remainder of the Cosmos roster.
