U.S. Open Cup Announcement

Duluth Football Club will be kicking off its first ever inclusion in the US Open Cup with a Round 1 matchup against the Dakota Fusion, currently scheduled to be hosted in Duluth. The Fusion are familiar foes, finishing second in the North Division just one point behind Duluth FC.

The two meetings between the sides in 2017 were unfortunate for the home side, with both Duluth and Dakota winning on the road. Duluth managed to thrash Dakota early in the season in a six goal game that featured two braces, one for Charlie Cane and one for Joe Watt. Dakota would reap their revenge however in a close 1-2 win at Public Schools Stadium. Duluth FC will hope to repeat one over the other as they look to move on to the second round of the US Open Cup for the first time.
