Someday, maybe, this game will mean a little more to a lot more people. But until that time, the truest of soccer fans must hope they have GolTV (bless that network’s heart for broadcasting this match) in order to view the 2012 U.S. Open Cup final, the championship of American soccer.
It’s two Major League Soccer clubs for the right to hoist the trophy in victory – the three-time defending champion Seattle Sounders on the road at Livestrong Sporting Park to play Sporting Kansas City Wednesday night at 8 p.m. CT.
After months of one-and-done games for teams from amateur adult leagues to lower-level professionals and all the way up to MLS, the last two standing are the Sounders and SKC. For Seattle, a win gives them an unprecedented fourth straight Open Cup title after wins in its inaugural season (2009) at Washington D.C. over DC United and home victories over the Columbus Crew and Chicago Fire in 2010 and 2011.
