From rooftop pitch to downtown pub, Sporting KC throws epic party to kickoff the 2017 MLS season.
Sporting KC hosted the “We. Together.” Season Kickoff Party presented by Ivy Investments on Tuesday. The club took over a downtown rooftop and converted it into a soccer pitch for the special occasion. The club introduced the new squad to the fans before Robb Heineman (CEO Sporting KC), Matt Besler (defender), and Peter Vermes (Manager) gave rousing speeches to kick off the season.
The players and fans then marched and chanted through downtown Kansas City with drums, smoke grenades and flags to – where else – the pub. The courtyard outside No Other Pub was converted into a futsal pitch, where players and fans competed for top spot.
