The Armada, who currently compete in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), are determined to make a deep run in the tournament and represent their city with pride. “Being away from the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup for the last five years not only is it exciting to compete at this level again, but even more so against an old rival club,” said Armada Head Coach, Tommy Krizonovic. “We look forward to the match with Miami United and can’t wait to be back in action. It is a great opportunity for our players to showcase their talent on a different platform and bring our community back together again for some quality soccer.”
