The 3rd round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match Oakland Stompers vs. Academica SC is postponed.

The decision to postpone the match was made by U.S. Open Cup Match Commissioner, Steve Larsen.  The air quality caused by the massive fires in northern California is too poor to subject the athletes to compete in.

"It just isn't worth it, the smoke in the air is visiable and makes it hard to breath," said Oakland Stompers Coach, Martin Sierra, "It would not be ideal playing conditions for the health of the players or the spectators". 

The Oakland Stompers management, along with U.S. Soccer and Academica SC, will come up with a rescheduled date, time, and location; TBD.
