New edition of Behind the Shield presented by Audi provides all-access look at historic return to Arrowhead

New in 2024, Behind the Shield presented by Audi will be available after every match this season with the video series - produced by Sporting Kansas City's full-time digital storytellers - providing fans with an immersive viewing experience highlighted by exclusive interviews and all-access footage from Sporting Kansas City players, trainings and matchdays.

This week's BTS captures the sights and sounds from the club's historic return to GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to take on Inter Miami CF on the anniversary of the club's inaugural match with a record-setting crowd of 72,610 fans in attendance.

Fans can hear Manager Peter Vermes, assistant coach Kerry Zavagnin and forward Daniel Salloi during the 10-minute episode, which can be seen on, Sporting Kansas City's YouTube channel and MLS Season Pass on Apple TV.

"The environment was out of this world," Vermes told media in the postgame press conference. "It was fantastic. It's a prelude to what probably will be here for the World Cup. I thought the fans were tremendous in all respects. It was a great environment to play in front of."

Sporting Kansas City will host cross-state rivals St. Louis CITY SC at 7:30 p.m. CT on Saturday at Children's Mercy Park. Tickets are available online at SeatGeek , including standing room only tickets, while supplies last and the rematch of last year's MLS Cup Playoffs encounter -- when Sporting swept No. 1 seed St. Louis -- will stream live on Apple TV for MLS Season Pass subscribers. Pub partners in the Sporting Pub Network will also show all of the action and radio coverage will air locally on Sports Radio 810 WHB and La Grande 1340 AM.
