All-time regular season series: This is the first meeting between the Menace and SAFC.
San Antonio FC will travel to Iowa for its second ever U.S. Open Cup match to face the Des Moines Menace of the PDL. SAFC defeated fellow Alamo City side, Corinthians FC of San Antonio in the Second Round, 3-1, led by a pro-debut brace by the Haitian Sensation, Jacques Francois.
The Menace reached the Third Round after dismantling the Tulsa Roughnecks of the USL, 2-0.
The winner of this match will go on to the tournament's Fourth Round to face the Houston Dynamo of MLS in Houston. Should San Antonio advance, they won't have the opportunity to play a home cup match until the Fifth Round, and that's not a guarantee. Consecutive away matches is difficult enough, and if SAFC are looking ahead to the match with Houston, they could put themselves in a difficult situation when they're in Iowa. The semi-pro side isn't one to ignore. Their win against the Roughnecks was their seventh win all-time versus the professional all ranks.
The match is Wednesday June 1st at 8:00pm CST. #DEMvSA
