U.S. Champion's Premier Cup & U.S. Cup Championship

The winner of the MLS Open Fed Cup has an invitation to play in the U.S. Champion's Premier Cup or the U.S. Cup Championship depending on the previous years champion and if they won there first round match. The first champion from the MLS Fed Open Cup that was invited to participate was Diablos SC, who had won the third MLS Fed Open Cup. Unfortunately, there was a scheduling conflict, and Diablos SC had to forfeit the match. Diablos SC won MLS Fed Open Cup four as well, but the cup went to long and there would be no representative sent.

Season 33 saw Metros winning the fifth MLS Open Fed Cup, and being sent to the U.S. Cup Championship. They played both there matches at famed cup hosting stadium, The North Aurora Activity Center. The semi-final game came easy as Metros crushed Erin Eagles 9-0. Then it was time for the final vs One Striker. Metros saw the other side of the coin that they had dealt just one week previous, and lost 0-9, taking second place in the U.S. Cup Championship. With there semi-final victory, Metros had guaranteed the season 34 cup winner a place in the U.S. Champion's Premier Cup.

Season 34 representative and winner of the sixth MLS Open Fed Cup Admiral 1775 would get to play in the more prestigious U.S. Champion's Premier Cup. They tried there hardest, but just couldn't pull out the victory and lost a close match 2-4.

Season 35 representative and winner of the seventh MLS Open Fed Cup DC Untied would be back into the U.S. Cup Championship. DC would win there first match 4-0 against a tough Memphis Manglers squad. They would be on to the U.S. Cup Championship final, just as Metros was two years before. Unfortunately, DC would give up a volley shot in the 10th minute of extra time and suffer a heartbreaking 3-2 loss.

Season 36 representative will be in the U.S. Champion's Premier Cup.
