Depends on the team, the Rhinos will probably have a stream on their website.
The Sounders will probably strwam the later games. I doubt they'll do the Kitsap game, but probably quarters and semis.
11 states still alive for the championship this year.
states still represented in the 2011 United States Open Cup:
3 New York
1 North Carolina
1 Missouri (even though they play in Kansas? like New York Red Bulls?)
Such a shame the two matches I want to watch tonight (LA Blues-Galaxy and RSL-Wilmington) will not air and only available via radio.
But I guess the organizers have to do what they have to do for people to come out to the matches.
By the way, I was wrong about the Sounders not streaming tonight's game. It should start tonight around 6:45 Pacific at the following link:
Interesting that the Kitsap coach is also a Sounders employee...
Being head coach of a PDL team doesn't pay much.
There's also a lot more ties between the MLS Sounders and Kitsap Pumas. The owner of the Pumas was a part owner of the USL Sounders, the USL franchise license the Pumas used to be for the USL Sounders, and a number of times when a young player is sent packing from the Sounders training camp, they've end up in the Pumas training camp. Prior to the reserve league expansion this season, the latter was more prevalent with players training with the Sounders on days the Pumas weren't practicing and playing in scrimmages the Sounders had with UW and other local teams.

Has there been a date thrown out yet on when the tickets for the SSFC vs LA Starfire game go on sale?
More importantly, when will US Soccer announce the possible match-ups and stadiums on where the Semi-Finals are going to be. I admit I'm getting a bit worked up here.
I think I saw that they go on sale tomorrow at 10am PT
semifinal hosts announced:
KC and RSL will host if they make it through.
I like how they have Strong bolded. And, shocker here, Seattle might have to do a road game if RSL beats FCD and Seattle beats LA. The rest pretty much shakes out how I would expect it to.
Dang. I really wish Richmond tried to bid for the game at their place, if they had bid and won the right to host and beat KC they could have had Thierry Henry and Rafa playing in front of possibly a capacity crowd.oh well.
Richmond did bid, they just couldn't outbid an MLS team, especially in the semi finals when things start getting a little serious for the MLS sides
GO RICHMOND! & Go RBNY.
SH!T crowd in KC tonight. What a disgrace.
Nobody cares about the Kickers in Richmond. The USL Championship game was here 2 or 3 years ago and about 2500 people showed up.
Disgrace? Have you watched any Open Cup games in MLS stadiums against lower division sides ever? The vast majority are like that.
Said the dude who clearly just watched his first USOC game. Seriously, very few Open Cup games sell for shit anywhere, and they never have. It's called "no advance sales and no lead time".
And played on a Tuesday and is not in season ticket packages and was not advertised anywhere besides the team's website and the tournament is not even in the same galaxy as the FA Cup when it comes to popularity.
I was actually very impressed with the crowd at PHP. The east side was virtually empty, but the west side was maybe a third full. I'd guess somewhere between 3-4k.
How do you propose making the USOC more popular then? All you arguments for why there was no one there last night (and nearly every other USOC match) are no excuse for maintaining the status quo, which is implied in your responses. We fans need to make this tournament more relevant, somehow. Does it start at the Federation level? Do tell.
