1998 Lamar Hunt United States Open Cup

MLS Qualifying

Automatically qualified

Dallas Burn (1997 US Open Cup winner), Chicago Fire, Columbus Crew, Kansas City Wizards, MetroStars, San Jose Clash, Tampa Bay Mutiny

Chicago, Columbus, DC United and San Jose were originally chosen by blind draw for automatic qualification, leaving Colorado, Kansas City, MetroStars, Los Angeles, Miami, and Tampa Bay to play qualifying games (regular season MLS games doubled as qualifiers). However, New England declined entry, and DC United and Los Angeles withdrew due to their entry in the 1998 Copa Merconorte. This left Colorado and Miami to determine the final MLS entrant
