The impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) is painfully clear to most people by now. Schools, restaurants, bars, theaters, most everything it seems is closed or limited in the amount of people that can gather together.
It is a tough time for everyone and the news has been changing rapidly. While we cover KC area teams (Sporting Kansas City, Sporting KC II, Kansas City Comets), we wanted to centralize the info and keep it current. Not just on Kansas City teams but all around soccer and other Kansas City sports as well.
We will add additional links and information.
