Sporting Kansas City’s 28th season in Major League Soccer may have begun precariously, but it ended better than many would have dared to imagine back in April.
A slow start was put on the backburner from early May onward as Sporting performed as well as any other team in the Western Conference over the final six months of a long and grueling campaign. And by the time the season had finally ended, Manager Peter Vermes’ men had plenty to be proud of.
In a season that showcased Sporting’s mettle and ultimately treated fans to an unforgettable playoff triumph over hated rivals St. Louis City SC, we visit the biggest milestones of 2023 in our year-end edition of By The Numbers, presented by Compass Minerals.
