Barring a pair of colossal upsets, MLS teams will host both U.S. Open Cup semifinals this year. The Seattle Sounders, Philadelphia Union and San Jose Earthquakes would each be guaranteed a home game if they win their quarterfinal matches.
The only way a MLS team won't be hosting a semifinal is if both Harrisburg and the Dayton Dutch Lions win their games. In that scenario, Harrisburg would host.
Unlike the previous rounds of the U.S. Open Cup, the semifinals were determined by a blind bid. Simply put, teams that bid more money were given the right to host.
