The New York Red Bulls are set to enter the 2015 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup field with a fourth-round match against the Atlanta Silverbacks of the North American Soccer League on Tuesday, June 16 at Red Bull Arena. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m., with www.newyorkredbulls.com providing a live stream of the action.

The Red Bulls have had an up-and-down start to 2015 in league play – opening the season 4-1-5 before dropping three straight, including tough back-to-back road games at Seattle (2-1) and Houston (4-2). New York held second-half leads in both of those contests before surrendering goals in the last 15 minutes.

Atlanta concluded the spring portion of the NASL season on Saturday with a 3-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rowdies. The Rowdies are in last place after 10 games with a 1-5-4 record.

The Silverbacks entered the Open Cup in the third round, going on the road to face Chattanooga FC for the second consecutive year. Atlanta overcame an 83rd minute goal by striking in stoppage time before finding the winner in extra time.
