Sporting Kansas City SC

Man United handed first loss on U.S. tour


In the aftermath of the Kansas City Wizards' 2-1 win over mighty Manchester United, Coach Peter Vermes tried to be humble. Central defender Jimmy Conrad did not.

''MLS owns the city of Manchester right now,'' crowed Conrad, who was sent off in the 39th minute.

A crowd of 52,342 — largest ever to see a soccer match in Kansas City — watched Davy Arnaud and Kei Kamara score first-half goals, then saw the Wizards fend off repeated shots on goal in the second half as the MLS team handed the Red Devils their first loss in a four-city tour of the United States.

THE REBRANDING OF THE WIZARDS


Kansas City franchise announced on Wednesday their new identity, including a new name, new crest, new colors, and a totally new look to go along with the new stadium that will open in 2011:

The Kansas City Wizards are now Sporting Kansas City.

Check out the new website: www.SportingKC.com

“We acquired our team from the greatest entrepreneur in the history of American sports,” Sporting President Robb Heineman said in a statement released by the club, referring to previous owner Lamar Hunt. “Moving forward, the vision of our brand is to continuously innovate and provide high-performance experiences for our members.”

More than 1,000 supporters attended the official unveiling in Kansas City. And Sporting's recently signed designated player, Mexican striker Omar Bravo, was also on handing, making his first appearance in town since signing.

“Our mission is to connect Kansas City to the premier professional sports experiences in the Midwest,” Heineman said. “We look forward to sharing more exciting news about future events and to hosting all our great fans in our new home upon its opening in June.”

The club's new crest has several elements, including boasting the upside-down teardrop shape of the original Wiz shield. The 11 stripes represent the 11 players on a field, and the right edge of the lines forms the angled shape of the Missouri-Kansas stateline. The crest's designers took inspiration from Greek mythology and art, including the rod of the Greek god Asclepius and the statue Winged Victory, and from Spanish architecture, a major part of Kansas City's Country Club Plaza district.

re: Sporting Kansas City SC

First preseason phase begins for Kansas City

Tests, light training await players prior to traveling to Arizona

ANSAS CITY, Mo. – Sporting Kansas City’s contracted players, draft picks and selected trialists reported on Monday for the beginning of the preseason, officially marking the start of preparations for the 2011 campaign.

Sporting’s players will spend this week undergoing various fitness tests, taking physicals and partaking in light training at the Kansas City Chiefs’ indoor training facility before moving on to Arizona, where SKC will spend the majority of their time prior to opening their season at Chivas USA.

“From a coaching perspective, it’s very exciting to get back on the field,” Sporting manager Peter Vermes said. “But we still have a lot of work to do in preseason here, preparing the team and acquiring a few more players. There is still a lot of work to be done.”

The work starts with molding the roster.

Sporting's Bunbury suffers dislocated elbow

Youngster taken to area hospital during 3-1 Houston preseason win


PHOENIX – An elbow injury to Sporting Kansas City youngster Teal Bunbury forced the US national team striker off the field and into an ambulance during a preseason match against the Houston Dynamo on Tuesday at the Reach 11 Sports Complex.

Houston’s 3-1 win was held up for roughly 20 minutes during the second of three 30-minute periods after Bunbury collided with Dynamo defender Andrew Hainault near the Houston penalty box.

As Bunbury attempted to round Hainult, he was tugged forward and to the ground, the Sporting forward instantly began screaming for assistance from the sideline.

KC Signs Brazilian Defender Julio Cesar

Highly rated centerback brings new level of experience to Sporting defense



Sporting Kansas City announced on Monday that the club has signed 32-year-old Brazilian defender Júlio César. César joins Kansas City after previously playing for some of the most successful clubs in the sport, including tenures with Real Madrid and A.C. Milan.

“The wealth of experience that he has received playing for some of the biggest clubs in the world will be very valuable for us over the course of a 34-game MLS season,” Sporting Kansas City Manager Peter Vermes said. “Although he has to get fully acclimated to our team in the short term, I think that his experience and playing ability will be invaluable to us throughout the upcoming season.”

Sporting KC snag Brazilian midfielder as designated player

Attacking midfielder Jeferson joins Sporting from Vasco da Gama


One of the most offensive-minded teams in MLS has added another weapon.

Sporting Kansas City announced on Sunday the loan acquisition of Jéferson, a 27-year-old Brazilian midfielder, as the club’s second designated player. He joins Mexican striker Omar Bravo as a DP.

“I’ve been preparing physically to be able to come here and make an immediate impact,” Jéferson said in a club statement. “I’m very excited to be here and I come with the goal to help the team fulfill its goal of making the playoffs and ultimately going to the final.”

A native of Brasilia, Jéferson has spent the past two seasons with Rio de Janeiro giants Vasco da Gama. The attacking playmaker has also spent time with Santo Andre, Guarani, Atlético Goianiense, and Brasiliense.

Sporting KC acquire the "Haitian Xavi," Peterson Joseph
Vermes has high praise for ex-Braga mid, finally signed by SKC



KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Peterson Joseph hasn’t had a chance to make a name for himself in Major League Soccer yet, but the 21-year-old midfielder is already set in the nickname department.

Sporting Kansas City announced the signing of Joseph, known as the “Haitian Xavi,” on Thursday afternoon following an extended trial that dragged for almost two months as the club worked out the details of an agreement with Portuguese club SC Braga for the player’s rights.

“It was a long process because his formation rights were owned by Braga,” manager Peter Vermes said. “We got that settled and taken care of so now we have him under contract. I think he has some really good qualities. We wouldn’t have waited this long to sign him if we didn’t [think that]. He can have an impact on this team.”

It's getting Real
Collin's header buries RSL as SKC remains unbeaten



Sporting Kansas City stretched their winning streak to six matches to open the 2012 season with a 1-0 victory over Western Conference leaders Real Salt Lake on Saturday at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. Aurelien Collin scored the game-winning goal in the 63rd minute, heading home a corner kickfrom Graham Zusi, and goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen recorded his MLS-best fifth shutout of the year.

The sell-out crowd at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park would have to wait until the 31st minute to see the first chance of the match, when Bobby Convey had his shot saved by Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando. Zusi's corner was hit long to the back post and gathered by C.J. Sapong, who laid the ball back for Convey but thewinger’s shot was straight at Rimando.

SKC's Kamara on Impact loss:
"They played our game"



KANSAS CITY, Kan. – No music blared in the home locker room. The flat-screens were silent and dark. One after another, Sporting Kansas City’s players shook their heads and reflected upon an upset loss to an expansion side most expected them to crush.

“I think we got outfought tonight, and I can honestly say that it’s the first time that this team, our team, that it’s happened to us this year,” midfielder Graham Zusi said after the Montreal Impact stunned Sporting 2-0 on Saturday night. “I can pretty much promise you that it won’t happen again.”
