Sacramento Republic FC will host US Open Cup semifinal, team says

Sacramento will host its next match in the US Open Cup semifinals, a major moment in the Sacramento Republic FC’s history, the team said Thursday in a tweet. “One of the biggest matches in club history is coming to the Indomitable City,” the team, which will host its match against Sporting Kansas City at Heart Health Park, said. Sacramento was chosen to host after Thursday’s drawings. If Sac Republic wins the semifinal, they will not host the championship game. They would instead play at the winner of the eastern final. This comes after Sac Republic’s massive upset Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Galaxy, a Major League Soccer team. With that victory, the United Soccer Leagues team earned a spot in the semifinals, the first time it’s ever done so in its history. This is also big because MLS teams tend to advance this far more often than USL teams.Tickets for the game go on sale Friday at 1 pm The game will either be on July 26 or 27.Fans like Krissie Goetz, who is part of Sac Republic’s supporter group Tower Bridge Battalion, were excited when the semifinal match location was announced.”We get to host a semifinal match, that’s unbelievable,” Goetz said. “If MLS isn’t taking notice now, something is seriously wrong with them.”Pete’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, located off of Arden Way, is definitely taking notice. It is Sac Republic’s official partner for watch parties. Fans gathered at Pete’s for Tuesday night’s watch party. General Manager Tim Honeycutt told KCRA 3 he is expecting an even bigger crowd for the semifinal match.”I think it’s going to be a very good show for us,” Honeycutt said. “I’d say we’ll probably anticipate another 20% in business that day, at least.”Honeycutt is also planning to open up the second floor of Pete’s for the July game too, to make sure everyone can have a good time. “I think it’s going to be a great, great thing for the community — and just the fans,” Honeycutt said.
