You have the option to receive occasional, exclusive behind-the-scenes email updates about projects we're working on and other behind-the-scenes info so you know where your money is going and what work goes into putting together a complete historical record of the US Open Cup, and covering the current tournament.
Until TheCup.us was launched in 2003 (under the name USOpenCup.com), there had never been an independent media outlet dedicated to giving the tournament full coverage from qualifying to the Final. Since then, the staff of TheCup.us has worked diligently to not only tell the stories of the current tournament, but has spent countless hours putting together a complete historical record of the competition so that this unique American institution can be preserved for generations to come.
What the staff and all of the contributors have done for the last 16+ years without a budget has been nothing short of remarkable, so this Patreon account was created in an effort to help take that coverage to the next level.
Some of the goals for the site include expanding live coverage and historical research about the tournament, increasing feature stories, a website redesign, a mobile app, a weekly podcast, video features, creating a published book about the tournament and more.
