On the day that Sporting Kansas City and the LA Galaxy were scheduled to square off at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California, the clubs' eMLS stars will instead lock horns in the virtual realm.
At 4 p.m. CT on Saturday, Sporting's Alekzandur will face LA Galaxy's Godfather in a FIFA 20 charity matchup that will stream live on Twitch/tv/eSportingKC, SportingKC.com/live and the Sporting KC Twitter, Facebook and YouTube platforms.
As the live stream unfolds, viewers will have the opportunity to make online monetary donations to The Victory Project—the philanthropic arm of Sporting Kansas City—with all proceeds going to COVID-19 relief in the Kansas City community. Alekzandur has pledged to crack an egg on his head if at least $100 is raised during the live stream.
Stay tuned to Sporting's Twitch channel and follow @eSportingKC on Twitter for the latest updates around live streams involving Alekzandur and Sporting players. The club plans to stage several FIFA 20 live streams until the MLS regular season resumes.
