Sporting KC will host the San Jose Earthquakes at Children's Mercy Park on Sunday, November 22, in their first game of the playoffs.

After finishing 11th out of 12 in the Western Conference last year, Sporting KC rebounded to number one and the top seed in the playoffs.

The Kansas City players pulled off the greatest season-to-season ranking change in league history. That success was achieved while having to navigate through key injuries and adhering to COVID-19 safety guidelines.
