KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Sporting KC’s 2020 season opener will have an international flavor.

Kansas City’s Major League Soccer team released its 2020 schedule Thursday, with the season opener set for 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29, in Vancouver against the Whitecaps.

The first chance for Kansas City fans to see the team at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas, will come the following Saturday, March 7, against rival Houston Dynamo.

Thirteen of the team’s 16 home games will fall on a Saturday – a fact the team hopes will allow fans to catch more games. Of the other three home games, two are on Sundays.

Due to the expansion of MLS, Sporting KC won’t face every team in the league – a first for the team. Sporting’s schedule does not include matches against D.C. United, the New York Red Bulls and Inter Miami CF.

The team wraps up 2020 with a home match Oct. 4 against New York City FC.

More information and tickets are available on Sporting’s website.
