LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. - A sold-out, standing room only crowd is expected Saturday at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan., as Sporting KC fans cheer on their team at the MLS Cup Final.
Tickets on Sporting KC's website sold out in five minutes. Now, ticket brokers are the go-to place to buy a ticket. That's disappointing to Tom Davis, a Lee's Summit man who was hoping to attend the game with his sons.
Sporting KC had tickets for sale starting at 10 a.m. Monday. By 10:05, the tickets were sold out.
"I was on the Sporting KC website searching for the tab to buy tickets and it had already been taken down," Davis said. "It's just a shame that we have such wonderful venues like Sporting Park and the Sprint Center and we live here in town; but it's tough to get tickets."
You can still buy tickets on ticket broker sites ranging in price from $130 to $170.
Davis was hoping to score $60 tickets on the Sporting KC website. He doesn't plan to buy the higher-priced tickets from ticket brokers.
Davis said he'll just watch the game on television with his sons.
