(WFLA) The Tampa Bay Rowdies opponent for next Tuesday’s 2nd round Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match will be The Villages SC of the USL League Two. The Villages defeated fellow League Two opponent Lakeland Tropics in penalty kicks Tuesday night after a 1-1 draw. 

The Rowdies and The Villages SC will play at 7:00 pm at Al Lang Stadium and admission is free. No tickets will be required to get into the stadium.

The Rowdies approach to next Tuesday’s game will be watched closely as they face a big road test in their USL Championship regular season tomorrow night at Nashville SC. The Rowdies have yet to lose through nine regular season games in 2019.

However, the U.S. Open Cup haunts the core group of players from last year’s squad. A 1-0 defeat to Jacksonville Armada in the 2nd round marked a downward turn for the Rowdies, resulting in a coaching change and re-evaluation of the roster. 

One year later, an opportunity to erase that memory and continue the momentum of an encouraging start to the season.
