The host team will play in the second semifinal Aug. 5 at 8 p.m., with the weekend's first match set for 5:30 p.m. The championship and third-place games are scheduled for the same times the following night.
The Bavarians, who won the Region II title earlier this month, will face a Legends FC side making its third consecutive appearance in the Amateur Cup semifinals. They lost to the eventual champions each of the past two years, falling to the New York Greek Americans in 2014 and to Kansas' Quinto Elemento last year.
Region III champion Legends FC plays in the North Texas Premier Soccer Association in Dallas, and won the regular-season title in the league's top division this spring before losing in the playoff final.
Their roster includes several former professional players and one Wisconsin native: Anthony Santaga (Green Bay Notre Dame), who played against the Bavarians from 2011 to '13 with the Madison 56ers when both clubs fielded teams in the National Premier Soccer League.
"Looking forward to coming back up to Bavarian Park," the 24-year-old Santaga wrote in a Twitter direct message.
Region IV representative Moreno Valley FC won the United Premier Soccer League Southeast Division title this season, but lost in the regional semifinals. Their semifinal opponent, Christos FC, is 26-0-1 in all competitions this season and also advanced to the national semifinals in the USASA Werner Fricker Open Cup.
