The 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, a tournament open to all soccer teams in the United States, ran from June through October.

The Columbus Crew won the Cup with a 1-0 victory over the defending-champion Los Angeles Galaxy in the final at Columbus Crew Stadium. Just three days before, Los Angeles had won MLS Cup 2002.

Every third-round game featured an MLS team against an A-League squad. Although MLS won seven of the eight games, four went to overtime, including San Jose's memorable 4-3 win over Seattle. The Des Moines Menace turned in the best performance by a PDL team, taking Rochester to overtime in a 3-2 second-round loss.
