Sporting Kansas City (7-9-7, 28 points) and Real Salt Lake (10-9-4, 34 points) will renew their Western Conference rivalry on Saturday, locking horns at 7:30 p.m. CT inside Children's Mercy Park.
Tickets for the contest remain available at SeatGeek.com as Sporting hosts its third annual Sporting Salutes, an immersive military appreciation night held in partnership with Hallmark that recognizes past and present service personnel and their families across all branches of the United States Armed Forces. Supporters can also catch the game live on FOX Sports Kansas City Plus, FOX Sports Midwest Plus, FOX Sports GO, Sports Radio 810 WHB and ESPN Deportes KC 1480 AM.
