The Baltimore Bohemians will begin their 2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup campaign on Wednesday, May 14th, as they host Icon FC of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) at Calvert Hall.

Baltimore qualified for this year's Open Cup by finishing second in the PDL Mid-Atlantic Division last season.

Icon FC, based in Montville, New Jersey, reached the second round of last year's Open Cup, defeating the Brooklyn Italians, 4-1, before falling to the Richmond Kickers by the same scoreline.

80 teams will participate in this year's tournament, the most in the Modern Professional Era (1995). The 101st winner of the U.S. Open Cup will be crowned in early October, with the winner receiving $250,000 and a place in the 2015/16 CONCACAF Champions League. The runner-up takes home $60,000, with the team that advances furthest from each lower division (NASL, USL Pro, PDL, NPSL, USASA) earning $15,000.

The 2014 tournament kicks off on May 7th, with eight games scheduled. Tickets for the Bohs' Open Cup match can be found on the club's website.
