United-Charleston U.S. Open Cup match rescheduled for June 13 at KSU

By AccessWDUN Staff

Closed Door Match Will Be Played at Fifth Third Bank Stadium at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Ga. at 7 p.m. ET (ESPN+)

CHICAGO — The U.S. Open Cup fourth round match between Charleston Battery (USL Championship) and Atlanta United (Major League Soccer) has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 13 at Fifth Third Bank Stadium at Kennesaw State University.

The closed-door match is not open to the public but will be broadcast on ESPN+ and will complete the Fourth Round of the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, U.S. Soccer’s National Championship.

The match was originally scheduled to be played Tuesday night at MUSC Health Stadium in Charleston, S.C. but was abandoned due to an unplayable field surface due to persistent rain in the area. Despite Charleston’s efforts to secure a new venue for the match within 12-hours for Thursday, U.S. Soccer determined the match would be played in the venue that holds Atlanta United 2 games. The match is closed-door due to the immediate rescheduling of the event with insufficient time to secure staff and security personnel at the venue.

The match will be open to media. Media interested in attending should RSVP to communications@atlutd.com by 10 p.m.

The Fourth Round continues Wednesday night with nine games across the country beginning at 7 p.m. ET. All remaining Fourth Round games will be available to watch on ESPN+.

After the conclusion of Wednesday’s showdowns, the Round of 16 Draw will still be conducted the following morning on Thursday, June 13 at 10 a.m. ET. The Draw will be broadcast on U.S. Open Cup’s Twitter account @opencup and ussoccer.com.
