Sporting KC Uphoria: Free ice cream headlines weekend rundown

Sporting KC Uphoria DL - March 17, 2017

If you enjoyed the Sporting KC Uphoria experience for the home opener, you’ll want to return for round two as Sporting Kansas City hosts the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday at Children’s Mercy Park. Whether you’re watching in the stands or in the comfort of your own home, Uphoria is your go-to mobile companion on match day and throughout the week.

Those who haven’t downloaded Uphoria can do so on the App Store and Google Play before Saturday’s showdown. Now, a glimpse of what fans can look forward to this time around.

Free Ice Cream

Last weekend it was free Oreos. This weekend, Uphoria users can sweep up a free, family-size carton of Breyers ice cream at Price Chopper locations in the Kansas City area. Offer cards work just like Groupons and are equally easy to use: simply visit your local Price Chopper, show the offer to the cashier at checkout, and enjoy your Breyers ice cream free of charge. The offer will be available Saturday at 11 a.m. and run until Monday night at midnight.

Tickets Up for Grabs

Today only, fans can open Uphoria and answer a trivia question for their chance to win two tickets to Saturday’s match at Children’s Mercy Park. The question: who scored Sporting KC’s game-winning goal against New England on St. Patrick’s Day 2012?

Selfies with Roger

With Roger Espinoza set to join the Honduras Men’s National Team next week, there’s no better time to take a selfie with the Sporting KC midfielder.

After taking a photo, click “Send to Sporting KC” and your image will enter a queue to appear in the stadium. MySKC Cam gives users five different overlay options every match.
