After being excluded from the 2018 edition of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup, US Soccer and the Open Cup Committee have granted New York Cosmos B a spot in the tournament.

This move was possible due to the Cosmos’ appeal letter which was published on March 15th. You can read that letter here.

The Cosmos are not the only NASL affiliated NPSL club to be granted participation, Miami FC 2 and Jacksonville Armada U-23 will also be apart of play-in games.

“This is a victory for our fans,” said Rocco Commisso, the team’s hairman. “I said that I would continue to fight for the Cosmos and for independent soccer. This is a win off the field and now we have a chance to win on it.”

New York Cosmos B will take part in a play-in game, the match will take place on either May 5th or 6th. Their opponent, host venue and kick-off time will be determined at a later date.

It’s likely we will see a change in the Cosmos B NPSL schedule as the team was set to kick off the NPSL season May 5th against Boston City FC.

  1. I knew deep in my heart that Our Iconic team was not going to disappear. The USSF and MLS and SUM and the snakes Garber and Gulati wanted to eliminate us just like that! . We shall remain the most famous and iconic team in all of USA and the world. Just ask Pele and he will tell you and we are more famous than his previous team “Santos”. Who cares if they call us division 4. All I know is I am supporting the only team the New York Cosmos!
    Now I am the happiest fan because we have our cosmos team back and we will be there in every stadium in every regular and Open Cup game till the end!..Let’s go Cosmos for another championship!
    Forever a Cosmos fan!
