FC Wichita is an amateur team, and some of these players are college students, making this loss even rougher for the team and players. Therefore, the FC Wichita supporters’ group Air Capital Firm has started a GoFundMe to help the team recover.

NTX Rayados won the match 3-2 to advance to face the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium on June 6 in the fourth round of the Open Cup.
