    Thank you for this. As a result, it led me to poking around and discovering that Round Rock has a team that's been in USL2 since 2020!

    Let's look at possible numbers in the pro division for 2023.

    MLS: 25 eligible teams now + St. Louis in 2023 = 26
    USL-C: 23 eligible teams now + OKC and Queensboro in 2023 = 25
    USL-1: 11 eligible teams now + Lexington and Spokane in 2023 = 13
    MLS-NP: Rochester is the only one we know of now = 1
    NISA: 9/10 eligible teams now + ? in 2023 = 10 or 12, maybe

    That's around 75-77 pro teams.

    If we work backward:

    Round of 32: 8 MLS seeds + 24 winners
    3rd Round: 18 MLS teams + 30 winners
    2nd Round: 25 USLC teams + 35 winners
    1st Round: 13 USL1 + 1 MLSNP + 12 NISA + 44 Open Division teams

    That could be a total of 121 teams in the tournament.

    Obviously if they have some DIII teams start in the 2nd round that changes the number of Open Division teams.

    Anyone have other numbers?

    I have, honestly, utterly lost track. How does this (# of pros, total #) compare to previous cups?

    2022 tournament: 103 teams total, 71 pro division
    2021: 102 total, 65 pro CANCELLED
    2020: 100 total, 62 pro CANCELLED
    2019: 84 total, 52 pro
    2018: 97 total, 42 pro
    2017: 99 total, 43 pro

    Things really jumped in the last couple of years as far as pro teams.

    An interesting consequence if Sacramento wins the 2022 Open Cup.




    If that happens, then the round by round breakdown could look like this:

    Round of 32: 7 MLS + Sacramento seeds + 24 winners
    3rd Round: 19 MLS teams + 29 winners
    2nd Round: 25 USLC teams + 33 winners
    1st Round: 13 USL1 + 1 MLSNP + 12 NISA + 42 Open Division teams

    That could be a total of 119 teams in the tournament.

    Obviously if they have some DIII teams start in the 2nd round that changes the number of Open Division teams.

    So Sacramento could possibly knock out a couple of Open Division teams. If they win the Cup. We'll see what happens.

    That's a very interesting impact that I hadn't even considered. I'm still rooting for Sacramento.

    update for National Premier Soccer League for #USOC2023. We are expecting the league to receive 8 slots for the cup, but should the league receive fewer slots, this is the order the teams would be invited to the competition.
    1. FC Motown / Crossfire Premier Soccer winner (national champion)
    2. FC Motown / Crossfire Premier Soccer loser (national runner-up)
    3. Muskegon Risers (national semifinalist, 2.6 PPG)
    4. Tulsa Athletic (national semifinalist, 2.42 PPG)
    5. Jacksonville Armada FC U-23 (regional finalist, 2.83 PPG)
    6. El Farolito Academy (regional finalist, 2.4 PPG)
    7. Appalachian FC (regional finalist, 2.1 PPG)
    8. Cleveland SC (regional finalist, 2.08 PPG)
    Should any of these teams decline their invitation or become ineligible to take it, they would be replaced by the next best team in regular season points per game in their region. The full regional rankings can be found here:

    Region 1 champion NoVa, the defending Eastern Premier Soccer League champion, won over ASC New Stars via it's fourth straight penalty kick shootout in this tournament. Meanwhile hosts and Region 2 champion Bavarians bested upstart Los Ángeles Strikers.
    Bavarians, a historic side and recent power in the Midwest Premier League, are looking to become the second United States Adult Soccer Association national champion to directly qualifying for the #USOpenCup.

    Bavarian United SC is back on top! The Wisconsin side wins the 2022 #USASA National Amateur Cup over Northern Virginia FC, 1-0. This is Bavarian's sixth national amateur title and first since 2018. Bavarian automatically qualifies for the 2023 #USOpenCup! #USOC2023
