MLS Cup champions Sporting KC headline field at 2014 Disney Pro Soccer Classic

MLS Cup champions Sporting Kansas City headline the field at the 2014 Disney Pro Soccer Classic, set to take place from Feb. 19 to March 1 of next year. They’ll be joined by the Philadelphia Union, Montreal Impact, Columbus Crew and Orlando City SC (who are scheduled to compete in MLS in 2015).

Entering its fifth year, the Disney Pro Soccer Classic is designed to boost interest in soccer throughout Central Florida and establish the area as a prime training and competition destination for pro soccer clubs. Last year, the event at Disney attracted fans from across the US and Canada.

“Having marquee MLS teams such as the MLS champions in the field is evidence of the prestige and popularity this event has among the elite teams in pro soccer,’’ said Disney Sports director of business development Mike Millay said in a statement. "The competition this year is going to be fierce which means the fans are in for a real treat."

The full schedule for the event has yet to be finalized.
