Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, KS, is a cool stadium that every sports fan should visit. The pitch is sunken below the entrance to the stadium, giving a cool vibe and atmosphere that means it is well worth sourcing out cheap Sporting KC tickets on Immortal Seats. Plenty of matches are left to enjoy this season, with eye-catch matchups including a first-ever “Heartland Derby” in Kansas City as the expansion team St. Louis City SC comes to town on September 2. Also, look for gams against playoff-chasing squads like Los Angeles FC on June 17 and San Jose Earthquakes on August 26 as Sporting Kansas City works to move up the table after a disastrous start to the year.
Here is the biggest question for X based on their start to the 2023 season.
Is the season already over?
Sporting Kansas City is a proud club that has seen its fair share of success – and consistency through the years. That is why it is hard for fans to swallow that they are currently the worst team in the entire league. They have just nine points from 12 games – level with LA Galaxy, who have played a game less – and they are bottom thanks to having scored fewer goals than the venerable California franchise.
The problem has clearly been the lack of finishing ability. Advanced metrics show that Sporting Kansas City has averaged their attempts on goal the furthest away from the net of any time in the league. This suggests the lack of a dominant striker that they can feed the ball into to score, so they are settling for shots outside the 18-yard box, with a much worse chance of finding the back of the net. If the season is over, no one has told this team. They are actually on a two-match winning streak – their only two wins of the season so far in MLS – and a Wednesday night date in Los Angeles against LAFC will tell us plenty about if this team has (out of nowhere) turned the corner.
