SAN JOSE, Calif. – Following their 2-0 victory over the San Francisco Deltas on Wednesday night, the San Jose Earthquakes will host Seattle Sounders FC in the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Round of 16. The match will kick off at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28 at Avaya Stadium.
The matchups and hosting scenarios for the next two rounds were decided in a draw by U.S. Soccer on Thursday morning. San Jose won the right to host both the Round-of-16 matchup against Seattle and a potential Quarterfinal match against the LA Galaxy or Sacramento Republic FC, should the team advance.
The Quakes hold a 15-13 all-time record in U.S. Open Cup play. A win over Seattle would propel the Earthquakes to the Quarterfinals of the tournament for the first time since 2012.
