Revolution to Face FC Dallas in 2016 U.S. Open Cup Final

To bring a U.S. Open cup championship to Foxboro, the Revolution will have to get through Western Conference-leading F.C. Dallas. Can they do it?

After taking down the Chicago Fire in Tuesday's U.S. Open Cup Semifinal, the Revolution now have an opponent for the tournament's championship game: F.C. Dallas.

The Western Conference-leading club punched a ticket to the final by stunning the LA Galaxy on Wednesday with a pair of extra-time goals.

During the 30-minute period, LA struck first, with Mike Magee converting a penalty kick in the 100th minute. But Dallas fought back, receiving goals from Matt Hedges in the 116th minute and Victor Ulloa in stoppage time. Mauro Diaz assisted both tallies.

Now, the Revolution will visit Toyota Stadium with the U.S. Open Cup championship on the line. In one prior meeting between the two clubs this season, FC Dallas cruised to a 4-2 victory. This time, the Revs will look to flip the script. If they do, the win will represent the second time in MLS history the Revs defeated F.C. Dallas in the Open Cup Final; the other occurred in 2007, the only time the Revs have won the tournament.

Though U.S. Soccer announced Sept. 21 as the kick-off date for the final, Revolution Staff Writer and Editor Jeff Lemieux shared this morning that a date and time has yet to be determined.

Stay tuned for an update as more information becomes available.
