KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Peter Vermes’ crew is the best in the West.

With a 2-0 win Sunday over rival Real Salt Lake, Sporting KC clinches the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference ahead of the 2020 MLS playoffs.

Improving from an 11th place finish in 2019 to finish atop the table in 2020 is the largest single season turnaround in league history.

The group will enjoy a week off before facing the San Jose Earthquakes in the first round.
