2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup
The 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, a tournament open to all soccer teams in the United States, ran from June through October.
Every third-round game featured an MLS team against an A-League squad. Although MLS won seven of the eight games, four went to overtime, including San Jose's memorable 4-3 win over Seattle. The Des Moines Menace turned in the best performance by a PDL team, taking Rochester to overtime in a 3-2 second-round loss.
