The weather (warm with lots of sun), the stadium (signs point to an actual sell-out at Livestrong Sporting Park) and quality of play (Sporting are the on-form side in MLS and 2nd place in the East, Dallas is 3rd in the West) are all aligning perfectly for Kansas City. To borrow a phrase from the late great Badger Bob Johnson (he was a hockey coach), "It's a great day for soccer."
FC Dallas are coming to town, and Sporting has to be thinking of a season sweep.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. at Livestrong. Here's everything you'll need to know to get ready for the game.
