The updated U.S. Open Cup fourth-round schedule shows that the Sounders will begin play on June 18, regardless of opponent.

The Sounders will open against the winner of the Sunday match between PSA Elite (USASA) and LA Galaxy II (USL-Pro). PSA Elite would visit Starfire Sports Stadium, while the Sounders would travel to play LA Galaxy II at StubHub Center Track & Field Stadium in Carson, California.

The date falls in the middle of the three-week World Cup break in the Major League Soccer season.
