The third lower tier side, the USL’s Sacramento Republic, has to take care of the LA Galaxy and then the winner of a tilt between MLS clubs San Jose and Seattle.

In the East, it’ll be New England hosting DC United and the Philadelphia Union visiting the New York Red Bulls, while the Central has Sporting KC off to Houston and FC Dallas hosting Colorado.

The first matches will be held June 27 or 28, with the quarterfinals on July 11.
