Welcome to the final day of the MLS off-season. The eve of First Kick is upon us.

The team travels to our nation's capital this afternoon following one last pre-season training session in preparation for tomorrow night's season opener against D.C. United at RFK Stadium. The Sporting KC Television Network crew is already en route to bring you all the sights and sounds live and in HD on KSMO-TV. Coverage begins with a 30-minute pre-game show hosted by Callum Williams and Jake Yadrich leading up to kick off at 6:30 p.m. CT.

The Members' Club at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park is the place to be for the team's official watch party. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. CT and we'll have some new merchandise available to get you all geared up for the home opener next Saturday.

One match not enough to get your First Kick fix? Direct Kick will be offering a free preview all weekend on DirecTV, DISH Network and local cable providers. Plus, Sporting Kansas City Season Ticket Members get a 15% discount on MLS Live (offer ends tomorrow).

Let the games begin!
