If you're rooting for the home team tonight, you'll win no matter what.

Two San Antonio soccer clubs — San Antonio FC of the United Soccer League and Corinthians FC, an amateur team in the National Premier Soccer League — will play tonight in a second round matchup in the U.S. Open Cup. The Open Cup is a century-old tournament that involves clubs at different levels of competition, from amateurs to Major League Soccer.



This isn't the clubs' first meeting. SAFC won a preseason match 2-1 on March 16. Tonight's winner will advance to the third round, and take on the winner of the match between the Des Moines Menace and the Tulsa Roughnecks.

The match kicks off at 7:30 at Toyota Field (5106 David Edwards Dr.). Tickets are still available here.
