Richmond Kickers take on RVA FC tonight in the 2014 Lamar Hunt  U.S. Open Cup. This season, D.C. United has loaned Goalkeeper Joe Willis and Forward Christiano François to its USL PRO Affiliate for the tournament. With tonight's game, the pair will remain Cup-tied, meaning they can only play with the Kickers in the historic tournament. This does not apply to MLS games, though; both players are able to feature for United during MLS play.
