MLS: U.S. Open Cup-Columbus Crew SC at FC Cincinnati Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Fifth Round draw for the Lamar Hunt United States Open Cup was held earlier this morning at Soccer House in Chicago.

The Chicago Fire earned a berth in the Fifth Round thanks to their 1-0 win over Saint Louis FC last night. With this morning’s draw, the Fire know their opponent for the next round.

FC Cincinnati, who pulled off a major— some might say “massive”— upset over That Yellow Effing Team last night.

FCC will host the Fifth Round tie on June 28th— that’s a Wednesday, for you S8OT folks— at the University of Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium. The winner will go on to face either Miami FC or Atlanta United in the quarterfinals sometime in mid-July.

The Fire are four wins away from lifting their fifth US Open Cup— a prize the team has made it clear is very much in their sights.
