Datebook: U.S. Open Cup qualifying (Nov. 20-21)

The pairings have been set for the next window of local qualifying for the 2022 U.S. Open Cup.

All but one of the 32 teams have been determined. A second qualifying round game between Modesto City FC and Contra Costa FC in California was postponed due to unsafe field conditions. The match has been rescheduled for Sunday at an alternate location.
