Sporting KC loans 4 players to Orlando City
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Sporting Kansas City has agreed to loan four of the MLS club's players to Orlando City, the team's new minor league affiliate in the USL Pro league.
Sporting KC reached a two-year agreement with Orlando City in January, providing an avenue for players who don't see regular action with Sporting KC to get meaningful time in competitive games.
Orlando City has won the Commissioner's Cup the past two years for the best regular-season record in its league. The club will also participate in the U.S. Open Cup, a tournament that Sporting KC won last season.
