A total of 13 Fourth Round winners from Major League Soccer (Division I) were joined by three Division II sides, Miami FC from the North American Soccer League and FC Cincinnati and Sacramento Republic from the United Soccer League. These 16 clubs were divided into four geographic regions ahead of the Draw: Central, East, South, and West.
