The New England Revolution begins this year's Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup campaign in mid-June when the team enters the bracket in the fourth round with the rest of the U.S.-based MLS teams.

The 2014 U.S. Open Cup, the 101st edition of the tournament, features a record 80 teams. The Open Cup has crowned a champion for 100 consecutive years dating back to 1914.

This year's Open Cup winner will earn $250,000 and win the Dewar Challenge Trophy, one of the oldest nationally contested trophies in American team sports. The runner-up will take home $60,000, and the team that advances the furthest from each lower division will earn a $15,000 cash prize.

The Revolution will face the winner of the N.Y. Greek American Atlas (USASA) versus Richmond Kickers (USL PRO) third-round match, which will be played on Wednesday, May 28, in Richmond. Should N.Y. Greek American Atlas prevail, the Revolution would host the United States Adult Soccer Association club at Brown University in Providence, R.I., on Wednesday, June 11. Should the Kickers defeat N.Y. Greek American Atlas, the Revolution will travel to Richmond for their match against the USL PRO club on Wednesday, June 18.

The locations of the fourth-round match-ups were determined by a random selection process conducted by U.S. Soccer officials.

The Revolution is the 2007 U.S. Open Cup champion, the club’s first-ever cup tournament title. The Revs have a 13-10-4 all-time record in U.S. Open Cup matches.
