In less than two weeks, Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake will conclude the 2013 Major League Soccer season when they play for the MLS Cup.

Three months later, Sporting KC will kick off the league’s 2014 schedule.

The 2014 MLS schedule was released Monday, and for the second straight season, Sporting KC will take part in opening day. The club will travel to face Seattle at 2 p.m. on March 8 in the first match of the MLS season.

Sporting KC will return home on March 15 to play FC Dallas in its MLS home opener at Sporting Park, though it will play a home CONCACAF Champions League match against Cruz Azul three days earlier.

But first things first.

Trying to win its first MLS championship since 2000, Sporting KC will play host to Real Salt Lake at 3 p.m. on Dec. 7.

Tickets for the MLS Cup Final will go on sale at noon Tuesday as part of an exclusive pre-sale. The general public can purchase tickets beginning Monday.
