Time, date set for MLS Cup 2013

Mark your calendars, Major League Soccer revealed on Friday the time and date for when the 2013 MLS Cup champion will be crowned...

The MLS Cup finalist with the better regular-season record earns the right to host the championship game. So yes, in 190 days time, the quest for the Cup could culminate inside Sporting Park...the same season KC hosts the AT&T MLS All-Star Game on July 31 and the U.S. Men's National Team's final home FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Jamaica on Oct. 11.

Dare we suggest a second straight U.S. Open Cup championship at Sporting Park, too? That would come on Oct. 1 or 2 should Sporting KC return to the tournament finals.
