Rosters set for 2019 Sporting KC Media Game following draft at No Other Pub

Rosters for the 2019 Sporting KC Media Game are set following a draft held at No Other Pub following the FIFA Women's World Cup Final on Sunday, July 7. Sporting KC will host the annual media game at halftime of the July 20 matchup against FC Dallas, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at Children's Mercy Park.

Captains for the two sides were drawn at random, as Marcus Officer from FOX4 and Dani Welniak from KCTV5 (pictured) were awarded the privilege to both pick their teams during the draft and lead their troops out on the field on July 20.

Both Marcus and Dani opted for a strong soccer representative with their first picks, as former Kansas City Wizard Diego Gutierrez, now at ESPN Deportes KC, joined Team Officer as the first overall pick, while Emily Sinovic of KCTV5 - sister of Sporting left back Seth Sinovic - linked up with Team Welniak.
