Sporting Kansas City: Can they return to MLS Cup? | 2019 Club Snapshot

Sporting Kansas City are known for their consistency in MLS. Under head coach Peter Vermes, the club has reached the playoffs the last eight seasons, lifting MLS Cup in 2013.

But while that MLS Cup triumph and several U.S. Open Cup titles (2012, 2015, 2017) have marked this run for Sporting, the club is looking to ratchet up the success, as they seek to go from consistently solid to a consistent winner.  

With longstanding veterans like Matt Besler and Graham Zusi lining up alongside exciting imports like Felipe Gutierrez and Johnny Russell, Sporting are also looking to bring through an exciting generation of youngsters, including Daniel Salloi and Gianluca Busio.
