[DATEBOOK] The 2011 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup kicks off June 14 with 16 first-round matches. After the first and second rounds made up exclusively of lower division and amateur teams, the eight survivors advance to play eight MLS teams on June 28 in the third round.

The quarterfinals will be played on July 12 and the semifinals will be played on Aug. 30. All 2011 U.S. Open Cup matches are scheduled to be played on Tuesdays. This year’s final will take place on Oct. 4.

The tournament has crowned a champion for 97 consecutive years beginning in 1914. Every winning team’s name is engraved on the base of the Dewar Challenge Trophy which dates to the first year of the tournament and currently resides at U.S. Soccer House in Chicago.

Major League Soccer's eight teams are the six automatic qualifiers -- Columbus Crew, FC Dallas, Los Angeles Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, Real Salt Lake, Seattle Sounders -- and two play-in winners -- Chicago Fire, Sporting Kansas City
