A total of 19 PDL teams are involved in the 24 first-round games taking place on Wednesday, May 11. Thirteen PDL teams will host their respective games.
The first-round victors will advance to the second round on May 18 when the United Soccer League clubs enter the tournament.
In the 2015 U.S. Open Cup, two PDL sides earned victories against the USL. Ventura County Fusion, which hosts the USASA’s LA Wolves FC this year, advanced to defeat USL Western Conference Champions the LA Galaxy II 2-1 in the 2015 tournament. Jersey Express, which visits the NPSL’s Clarkstown SC this year, defeated the New York Red Bulls II by a 1-0 margin in 2015.
