A pair of juicy MLS rivalry matchups and a battle between two Midwestern foes will headline the fourth round of the 2017 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup.

The New York Red Bulls will host New York City FC, the Seattle Sounders will host Cascadia rival Portland Timbers and Sporting Kansas City will welcome Minnesota United FC to Children’s Mercy Park after they were all drawn together by US Soccer on Thursday.
