KC Could Host Open Cup Semifinal
Sporting KC have to get past the Richmond Kickers next Tuesday in their US Open Cup quarterfinal, but should they get past them then KC will be hosting the semifinals. Today US Soccer announced the potential semifinal pairings. KC will take on the winner of the Chicago Fire vs New York Red Bulls game in Chicago next Tuesday. The game will take place at LiveSTRONG Sporting Park on August 30th. KC continues their fixture congestion on Tuesday when they take on the only remaining minor league side in the tournament, the Kickers. KC is currently 3 wins away from silverware and at least 2 of those games will now be at LiveSTRONG Sporting Park. Certainly KC has to look at this as a good chance for the team.
