For the first time in 2016, Sporting Kansas City players and coaches will assemble this week to begin the club's preseason presented by Children's Mercy. Sporting KC will spend both phases of preseason in Tucson, Arizona, first reporting from Jan. 23 - Feb. 8 and then returning from Feb. 14-27 for the Desert Diamond Cup.
The 2016 MLS SuperDraft will conclude Tuesday with the third and fourth rounds held via conference call beginning at 1 p.m. CT. Sporting Kansas City currently holds the 11th pick in both rounds at No. 52 and No. 72 overall. Last Thursday, the club traded its first-round selection (No. 11 overall) to D.C. United in exchange for Targeted Allocation Money and did not have a second-round pick.
Children's Mercy Park will host two job fairs to hire part-time event staff employees for the 2016 season. The job fairs will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and next Tuesday, Jan. 26, from 5:30-9 p.m. in the Ameritas Shield Club at Children's Mercy Park (One Sporting Way, Kansas City, Kansas). Several departments will be interviewing for part-time positions, including Guest Services, Parking Operations, Building Services, Sporting Style and Legends Hospitality. Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
