U.S. Senate honors Sporting Kansas City's title

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- The United States Senate took time out of its very "busy" schedule to honor Sporting Kansas City's accomplishment from winning the 2013 MLS Cup.

More information:
U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) authored a resolution, introduced
last night with U.S. Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), extending the Senate’s congratulations to Sporting Kansas City for an outstanding 2013 season of Major League Soccer and for winning the 2013 Major League Soccer Cup. The Senate is expected to pass the resolution by unanimous consent this week.

“Sporting KC’s 2013 MLS Cup victory was an exciting moment in Kansas City’s already rich soccer history,” Sen. Moran said following the resolution’s introduction. “The club’s success, the world class Sporting Park, and the community’s enthusiastic support combine to make Sporting KC a premier MLS club and Kansas City one of America’s great soccer cities.”

The resolution reads, “the Senate—recognizes and extends congratulations to Sporting Kansas City for winning the Major League Soccer Cup 2013; and commends the players, manager, coaches, owners, support staff, and club supporters whose efforts and spirit made the 2013 season a historic success.”
