Teammates for Kids would like to congratulate the following Teammates who played for the 2013 MLS Cup Champions, Sporting KC: Matt Besler, Teal Bunbury, Aurelien Collin, Dom Dwyer, Benny Feilhaber, Kevin Ellis, Eric Kronberg, Peterson Joseph, Jon Kempin, Chance Myers, Paola Nagamura, Jimmy Nielsen, Ike Opara, Jacob Peterson, Oriol Rosell, Soony Saad, Seth Sinovic, Graham Zusi.
Sporting KC won the Championship in dramatic fashion going to 10 rounds of penalty kicks against Real Salt Lake to determine the winner of this year’s MLS Cup Champion. Along with the 18 players from Sporting KC, Real Salt Lake had and equally impressive group of Teammates with 15 players supporting our Foundation. That is over 30 players in this year’s championship helping us raise money for kids around the world! Match MVP and Teammate Aurelien Collin equalized the match in the 76th minute and then put the game away in the 10th round of penalty kicks.
This was the first Championship in any sport for the city of Kansas City since 2000, when the then Kansas City Wizards soccer team won the championship.
