The 1993 U.S. Cup was a round robin soccer tournament played in June 1993 and organized by the United States Soccer Federation. The United States hosted Brazil, England and Germany; all three of those countries were playing in their only U.S. Cup. The U.S. Cup began as a four-team invitational tournament in 1992 and would be played each year until 2000, except for the World Cup years of 1994 and 1998. The team with the best record at the end of the cup was crowned the cup champion. This year, Germany went on to win the title. England participated in the hope that they would be acclimatizing for the following year's World Cup, but in the end, they failed to qualify for that tournament.
The final game of the tournament, between Germany and England, took place in the Pontiac Silverdome, an indoor stadium in Detroit, Michigan. This was the first soccer game played indoors on grass and it served as a test for the upcoming 1994 FIFA World Cup to be held in the United States. In that World Cup, several venues, such as the Silverdome, had complete roofs and the World Cup organizers wanted to test the feasibility of using grass on an indoor field.
