XI DC Open Cup

The XI | Dome Names Strong Open Cup Team

New York City FC is back in the nation's capital to make a run at the U.S. Open Cup, as the team takes on D.C. United in the Round of 16 at 7pm ET on ESPN+.

It's a strong lineup from Dome Torrent, with Ben Sweat making his return from injury in place of Tony Rocha and Alex Ring back to captain the XI from the back. Keaton Parks, who made his first competitive start last week, also keeps his place in the lineup after his two-goal performance against North Carolina FC.

With the big three, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi, Héber, and Alexandru Mitriță, up front, NYCFC looks to continue their U.S. Open Cup campaign and qualify for the quarter-finals of the tournament.

On the bench, Danny Bedoya, Justin Haak and Juan Pablo Torres will hope to earn another opportunity to impress at some point on the night.

Orlando or New England will host the night's victors.

Tune in to ESPN+ so you don't miss a minute of the action. #ForTheCity
