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 rivalry rematch with St. Louis CITY SC last Saturday, highlighted by a special spotlight on the KC Cauldron's production of an impressive pre-match tifo.

"The last two weeks, we have painted 5,000 square feet of material to show St. Louis truly how much better we are than them," said KC Cauldron President Meghan Keller. "Our people in the stands, they love tifos. They absolutely love tifos."

Fans can also hear from Sporting KC defender Andreu Fontas and forward Daniel Salloi during the 12-minute episode, which can be seen on, Sporting Kansas City's YouTube channel and MLS Season Pass on Apple TV.
