The Sporting KC Show Podcast is available on Spotify and iTunes, giving supporters a weekly destination to catch up on club storylines, player achievements, guest interviews and more.

With regular season action commencing on Saturday, Friday will serve as the MLS Roster Compliance date for all 26 clubs. At this time, teams must be fully compliant with the league’s roster rules and regulations.
