The U.S. Open Cup Comes to Santa Ana

Yes, this is a pretty big deal. The Open Cup is the United States’s longest running, nationwide soccer tournament. This tourney involves amateur and professional leagues including the NPSL, USL, NASL and MLS. Our former Santa Ana Winds of the National Premier Soccer League, now for some bizarre and inexcusable reason called the Fullerton Rangers, will open US Open Cup play at Santa Ana stadium against the Ventura County Fusion on Tuesday, May 15.

It’s nice to have an Open Cup match in Santa Ana, it would be sweeter if they had kept the Santa Ana name! I almost want to tell you guys to take your cup match to some place in Fullerton.
