The Seattle Sounders FC after winning the 2011 U.S. Open Cup Final. The crowd of 35,311 is, to date, the largest ever in Open Cup history.

The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is an American soccer competition open to all United States Soccer Federation affiliated teams, from amateur adult club teams to the professional clubs of Major League Soccer.

The competition dates back to 1914, when it was known as the National Challenge Cup. In 1999, U.S. Soccer honored one of American soccer's most important patrons, Lamar Hunt, by changing the official title of the tournament to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. The winners of the tournament were awarded the Dewar Cup, donated by Sir Thomas Dewar for the promotion of soccer in America in 1912, until it was retired due to poor condition in 1979. It was brought back into use by the United States Adult Soccer Association in 1997, but is now back on permanent display at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta, New York, and the recent winners of the tournament have been awarded a new, different trophy. Despite this, the name of each winning club is still added to the base of the original Dewar Cup.

With five titles each, Bethlehem Steel of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and Maccabi Los Angeles have won the domestic cup more times than any other American soccer club. In a joint tie for second, the Chicago Fire, Fall River Marksmen, Greek American Atlas and Philadelphia Ukrainians have won the title four times. In the cup's 98 year history, 62 different clubs have won the tournament.

History[edit]

Prior to the National Challenge Cup, the main cup competition was the American Football Association's American Cup. Due internal conflicts within the AFA regarding the process of allowing teams to enter, a new association called the American Amateur Football Association was created. Formed in October 1911, association quickly spread outside of the Northeast and created its own cup in 1912, the American Amateur Football Association Cup. That year, both the AFA and AAFA applied for membership in FIFA, the international governing body for soccer. In 1913, the AAFA gained an edge over the AFA when several AFA organizations moved to the AAFA. On April 5, 1913, the AAFA reorganized as the United States Football Association, presently known as the United States Soccer Federation. FIFA quickly granted a provisional membership and USFA began exerting its influence on the sport. This led to the establishment of the National Challenge Cup that fall. The National Challenge Cup quickly grew to overshadow the American Cup. However, both cups were played simultaneously for the next ten years. Declining respect for the AFA led to the withdrawal of several associations from its cup in 1917. Further competition came in 1924 when USFA created the National Amateur Cup. That spelled the death knell for the American Cup. It played its last season in 1924.

A ^ : The 1940 final had no official final played. Both Baltimore S.C. and Chicago Sparta shared the title.[3]
B ^ : In soccer, "The Double" consists the top tier soccer league's regular season or playoff title. A modern-day example would include winning the MLS Supporters' Shield or the MLS Cup along with the Open Cup.
