After beating Birmingham Legion FC 1-0 Wednesday night in the 3rd Round of the U.S. Open Cup, Louisville City had to wait until Thursday morning to learn who their next foe would be.
Through a live-tweeted draw from the U.S. Open Cup, Louisville City found out they will play at longtime rival FC Cincinnati in the 4th Round on June 12.
The matchup is part of a round of 16 games pitting the winners from the first three rounds of the Open Cup with a group of MLS clubs who join the competition annually in Round 4.
Louisville City will update fans via social media channels as time, date and ticket information becomes available.
Louisville City and FC Cincinnati fans created a rivalry quickly when the two teams began to play each other regularly as part of the United Soccer League schedule.
The rivalry was intensified during several skirmishes during matches and was spurred along by former coach James O'Connor's distaste for FC Cincinnati. While the rivalry won't renew fully given FC Cincinnati's move to the MLS, the two teams meeting on the pitch again is cause for celebration for many fans.
