Louisville City FC coaches, players and fans are counting down until Monday night’s USL Cup Final against Swope Park Rangers.

Kickoff is set for 9 p.m. ET inside Slugger Field.

It will be LouCity’s first-ever appearance in the USL Cup Final.

The Boys in Purple are coming off a victory over New York Red Bulls II in the USL Eastern Conference Finals. That match ended in penalty kicks and gave LCFC its first-ever Eastern Conference Championship victory.

LouCity FC midfielders Mark-Anthony Kaye and Oscar Jimenez stopped by the Sports Night studio on Thursday. They spoke with Andrew Chernoff about preparations for Monday night’s USL Cup Final:
