2018 Promo Calendar

Bobbleheads and theme nights highlight 2018 home schedule

Sporting Kansas City has unveiled the club’s promotional schedule for the 2018 MLS regular season, offering up a variety of exciting theme nights, can’t-miss giveaways and family-friendly ticket packages.

At the forefront, limited quantities of full-season ticket packages remain available for fans looking to catch every moment of the action at Children’s Mercy Park in 2018.

Additionally, two half-season ticket packages are on sale starting at $305 for supporters looking to work around their busy schedules. Sporting KC has also confirmed five home dates for Sunday Family Four Packs presented by Coca-Cola, consisting of four match tickets, four hot dogs, four Coca-Cola products and four bags of chips.

Sporting KC fans will be treated to numerous promo items over the course of the season, highlighted by the return of player bobbleheads. Club stars Ike Opara, Tim Melia and Matt Besler will each have their own bobblehead nights during the early months of the 2018 campaign.

The calendar also includes the return of several theme nights — including Retro Night, Local Night and Sporting Salutes — plus holiday celebrations for St. Patrick’s Day and Cinco De Mayo as well as engaging new additions such as Faith and Family Day.
