1921–22 National Challenge Cup

  (Redirected from 1922 National Challenge Cup)

The 1921–22 National Challenge Cup was the annual open cup held by the United States Football Association now known as the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.


The competition began with 118 teams separated into an eastern and western division, eventually narrowing to St. Louis Scullin Steel F.C. of the St. Louis Soccer League (SLSL) and Todd Shipyards of the American Soccer League. The title game was originally scheduled to take place at Federal Field in St. Louis, Missouri, the SLSL's main stadium. However, in May 1922, the USFA directed a change in venue after the fees to be charged by the field became exorbitant. After an extensive search, USFA settled on High School Field in St. Louis.[1] On March 19, 1922, Scullin Steel defeated Todd Shipyards to become the second St. Louis team to win the trophy.
