A Brief History
Founded by visionary sports magnate Lamar Hunt, in the early years Sporting KC (then the Wizards) was led by such MLS legends as Serbian all-star Preki and Scottish international Mo Johnston. In 2000, with US superstar Tony Meola tending net and setting the record for longest shutout streak in MLS history, the team dominated the competition all season and took home the MLS Cup.
Since the move to Sporting Park in 2011 and the rebranding of the team to become Sporting KC, the club has enjoyed tremendous success. In 2011 and 2012, Sporting Kansas City has finished the regular season with the best record in the Eastern Conference. In 2013, they defeated Real Salt Lake to become MLS Cup Champions. In 2014, they finished 5th in the Eastern Conference.
After years playing home games in massive Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs, Sporting KC moved into their state-of-the-art stadium in 2011 and it is truly one of the great sports venues in the country. At the north end of the stadium you’ll find (and CERTAINLY hear) the chants and cheers of Blue Hell, the team’s inimitable supporters group.
Located in the West Village section of Kansas City, Sporting Park is surrounded by TONS of dining, shopping and entertainment options. Spend the day (heck, spend a bunch of days) in the area and cap it off with an electrifying Sporting KC match and see one of the best teams in MLS.
