Why is this important?
Because the winner of the match will face NYRB II in the second round.
New York Greek American play in the Cosmopolitan league, a semi-pro league affiliated with United States Adult Soccer Association, and were champions in 2013-14. The franchise has a long history in the U.S. Open Cup, winning the competition four times in 1967, 1968, 1969, and 1974. They will travel to the campus of the New Jersey Institute of Technology the home ground of the Jersey Express.
The Express play in the USL Premier Development League, the same as the New York Red Bulls U-23 team, and made the national PDL semi-finals in 2014. Current Red Bull on loan to New York City FC Ryan Meara played for the Jersey Express while he was in college.
If New York Greek American wins the match, NYRB II will host its inaugural match in U.S. Open Cup play in the second round. If the Jersey Express win, NYRB II will travel to Newark to face off against the PDL side.
The match kicks off at 8:00 pm Eastern Time and unfortunately will not have a live stream.
