US Open Cup: FC Dallas or Philadelphia Union to host final vs. Seattle Sounders or Chicago Fire

Either FC Dallas or the Philadelphia Union will host the 2014 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup final, per the results of a coin flip conducted by US Soccer President Sunil Gulati in Portland.

The draw was made during a live edition of the Men in Blazers podcast during MLS All-Star week festivities, and means that Dallas could get a chance to win the trophy named after their legendary founder in their home stadium.

The final will be played on either Sept. 16-17 or Oct. 1.

On the other side of the draw, two of the most storied teams in US Open Cup history await. Four-time winners Chicago Fire will travel to face three-time winners Seattle Sounders on August 13 in a semifinal matchup. The Dallas-Philadelphia semifinal will take place a day earlier, with FCD playing host.
