Soccer isn't as big in the United States as it is in other parts of the world, but it's still big enough that there are quite a few championships going on, including the US Open Cup. If you want to watch the US Open Cup games online, we can help you out.

The US Open Cup is the oldest national soccer competition in the US, going on since 1914. The cup is contested by teams from the MLS and the USL, which are the two professional leagues sanctioned by the US Soccer Federation. 84 teams are battling for the prize this year, from 34 states.

You can check the rough schedule below, although you should visit the US Open Cup website to check which teams are playing in those days, as the tournament progresses.

Round Dates
1 May 7 - May 8

Round of 16 June 18 - June 23

The games are no longer broadcast by regular TV networks, as the exclusive rights have gone to ESPN+ starting this year and through 2022.

How to Watch the US Open Cup Without Cable?

Live TV platforms and streaming services are the new way to watch TV. They give you so much freedom since you get to watch wherever you may be, whenever you want since all you need is a compatible device and an Internet connection. Plus, they're far cheaper than anything cable can offer.

ESPN+ is a streaming service that was launched back in the spring of 2018 and managed to rapidly grow in popularity. After all, it's tied to the ESPN networks, which are some of the most popular across the US. There are two subscription plans you can choose between - you can either pay $5 per month or $50 per year, depending on how much you want to shell out in one go.

The platform provides access to content from ESPN, as well as exclusive events ESPN+ has signed up for, original content, and more. All content is accessed through the same ESPN app everyone uses, but the subscription provides access to the blocked-off content which is marked with a golden badge.
