Bremerton, Wash. – The opening-round opponent in the 2010 U.S. Open Cup for the Kitsap Pumas has been set. The club will host the Bay Area Ambassadors FC, hailing from San Francisco on Tuesday, June 15 at Bremerton Memorial Stadium.

Kickoff will be one half hour earlier than Pumas regular-season matches at 7:00 p.m.

2010 season-ticket holders will also be admitted FREE to this first round match.

“We’d like to offer our season-ticket holders a nice gift for their support and commitment,” said Pumas owner Robin Waite. “We’re also thrilled to bring this match to Kitsap. The Ambassadors are a quality team and we look forward to playing them and hopefully moving on to the second round for the first time.”
