After opening the Audi 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs with a 3-1 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday at Children's Mercy Park, Sporting Kansas City has advanced to the Western Conference Semifinals and will play at 2 p.m. CT on Sunday live on ABC and ESPN Deportes versus the winner of tomorrow's Round One match-up between Seattle Sounders FC and Real Salt Lake.
Sunday's Western Conference Semifinal will be hosted by the higher-seeded club. If the No. 2 seed Seattle Sounders FC advance past No. 7 seed Real Salt Lake, No. 3 seed Sporting Kansas City will travel to Lumen Field for a third time this season to take on last year's Western Conference champions. If Real Salt Lake prevails in the Round One finale at 9:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday live on FS1, Sporting Kansas City will host the Western Conference Semifinal at Children's Mercy Park this Sunday afternoon.
Tickets for the potential 2013 MLS Cup rematch in Kansas City are available at SeatGeek.com and all ticket buyers will be automatically refunded for their full purchase price via SeatGeek's Buyer Guarantee if Real Salt Lake does not advance on Tuesday.
