Early this year, the Sporting Club Network announced its #MLSCupTour. As a celebration of Sporting Kansas City's 2013 MLS Cup championship, the Sporting Club Network packed up the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy and took it on a tour throughout the Midwest. Throughout this nine-month excursion, stops were made at a variety of Academy Affiliate cities to provide members of our network the chance to celebrate our championship in the comfort of their own backyard.
More than 50,000 Sporting Club Network members had the opportunity to see the cup as it traveled to 10 cities across four states. From Sporting Kansas City’s senior team to each and every youth player around the Midwest, this tour signified that we are all part of the same club by allowing our members to touch, feel and imagine raising the trophy themselves. Check out our Storify chronicling the tour and take a look at our video and photo album below highlighting this awesome series of events.
Thank you to the countless players, coaches, administrators, board members, fans and families that supported Sporting KC as they were crowned 2013 MLS Cup champions and celebrated the achievement along our tour throughout the Midwest. We’re so happy to have had the opportunity to share this victory with all of you and can’t wait to #DefendTogether!
