ABOUT THE MATCH

On May 21, Reading United qualified for the third round of the competition after knocking off USL PRO side, the Harrisburg City Islanders, 1-0, at Don Thomas Stadium in Reading, PA, earning the club’s first-ever professional upset in its history. Mario Pinto found the back of the net in the win. Reading advanced to face Harrisburg following a 2-0 victory over NPSL’s FC Lehigh Valley United Sonic in the tournament’s first round.
The Red Bulls will compete in the knockout tournament for the 17th time. Last year, the Red Bulls defeated USL PRO side, the Charleston Battery, 3-0, on the road before falling to the City Islanders on June 5, 3-1, in overtime in Harrisburg, PA. New York has never faced Reading United. Since Red Bull Arena opened in 2010, the Red Bulls are a perfect 4-0 in the Open Cup at home. New York’s best finish in the tournament was in 2003, making it to the final before falling to the Chicago Fire, 1-0.
