Tucson's qualifying match against Southern California was suspended, but the Amigos were awarded the second Group A berth because of "U.S. Soccer Federation issues involving San Gabriel Valley's player registrations for U.S. Open Cup play." These issues will likely not be resolved before the start of Open Cup play, hence the Amigos' entrance into the U.S. Open Cup."
