Sporting's three matches in Visit Tucson Sun Cup to stream live on SportingKC.com

Good news, fans: the days of closed-door scrimmages are over.

Sporting Kansas City's final three matches of the 2020 preseason, presented by Children's Mercy, will stream live on SportingKC.com to viewers in the Kansas City area.

With three tune-ups already in the books, Manager Peter Vermes' men will conclude their preseason preparations in Arizona with a trio of matches in the Visit Tucson Sun Cup. SportingKC.com will provide exclusive live coverage of all three fixtures as Sporting faces Real Salt Lake at 5 p.m. CT Saturday, Phoenix Rising FC at 8 p.m. CT Wednesday and the New York Red Bulls at 3 p.m. CT on Feb. 22.

The upcoming live streams will give supporters their first opportunities to catch new color analyst and former Sporting forward Jacob Peterson join play-by-play announcer Nate Bukaty in the commentary booth. The duo will call locally broadcast Sporting matches throughout the 2020 MLS regular season alongside touchline reporter Carter Augustine.

Sporting opened the preseason with consecutive 4-0 wins over a team of Rising FC trialists and FC Cincinnati before falling to Columbus Crew SC on Wednesday. The club will now turn its attention to the Visit Tucson Sun Cup, a preseason tournament featuring several MLS teams as well as USL Championship side Phoenix. Tickets for all Sun Cup fixtures are available at FCTucson.com and PHXRisingFC.com.
