Real Salt Lake will learn on Tuesday night its opponent for its May 28 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup third-round match at Rio Tinto Stadium. 

The North American Soccer League's Atlanta Silverbacks will take on the National Premier Soccer League's Georgia Revolution in the Open Cup second-round at 5 p.m. MT on Tuesday, with the winner of the Peach State matchup set to take on RSL in Sandy next Tuesday. 

The Silverbacks-Revolution match will be streamed live beginning at 5 p.m MT. Watch the match live here.

Now in its 100th year, the U.S. Open Cup is the longest running soccer competition in the United States. The winner of the tournament qualifies for the CONCACAF Champions League, with this year's champion entering the 2014-14 continental competition. 

Tickets are available at special prices for the May 28 Open Cup match and can be purchased online, at the Rio Tinto Stadium box office or over the phone at 801-727-2700. The game is included in the RSL Season Ticket Package as Bonus Game A.
