If it reaches U.S. Open Cup final, Sporting KC will play on the road

If Sporting KC wins its U.S. Open Cup semifinal match against Real Salt Lake next week, it will travel on the road for the championship match.

U.S. Soccer conducted the draw Wednesday to determine host sites for the Open Cup final, which will be played on Sept. 30.

Sporting KC has played exclusively home matches in the 2015 tournament, and it will play host to Real Salt Lake at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 12 in the semifinal.

Chicago and Philadelphia will meet in the other semifinal, also on Aug. 12. Both teams drew hosting priority over Sporting KC.
