If you’re attending Sporting KC’s home opener Saturday night at Children’s Mercy Park, get there early.
The Kansas City rock band the Architects will perform in the bowl about 15 minutes before kickoff, which will be approximately 7:35 p.m. (officials with the club suggest being in your seats by 7:15 p.m.). A few moments before kickoff, rapper Tech N9ne also will make an appearance. Tech is the voice behind the recent Sporting marketing campaign.
Sporting KC will play the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday. Sporting won its season opener Sunday night, beating the Seattle Sounders 1-0 in Seattle.
