In the Spring 2011, Blue Valley Soccer Club became a SPORTING KC
Academy affiliate and one of the founding members of the SPORTING Club Network. With the merger between BVSC and KCFC in the Spring 2012, this association continued with the re-branding as SPORTING Blue Valley. The affiliation connects SPORTING Blue Valley with the resources of the MLS team. The importance of this connection is our role as a feeder club for boys into the SPORTING KC Academy. Top ECNL girls teams in SPORTING Blue Valley wear the MLS SPORTING KC Replica jerseys to show both club’s combined commitment to the women’s game. Other benefits to our club include: wearing SPORTING Club patches on game uniforms for Premier teams, Coaches Education Series, Gameday Chalk Talks, Club Nights at SPORTING Park, SPORTING Club Mini-Clinics, personal appearances to SPORTING Blue Valley events by SKC players (see below) and special promotional ticket prices offered throughout the season.
The 2014 Spring Benefit game that contributes all collected funds to the SBV Scholarship Fund had SPORTING KC players Matt Besler and Chance Myers perform as guest coaches and then also sign autographs for their numerous SPORTING KC soccer fans. It was a great night to see these players along with an entertaining game on the field with SBV Premier Coaches taking on the U17/U18 SBV Boys. This event is held in April every year.
In May 2014, many SBV players attended the SPORTING Kansas City sponsored SPORTING Blue Valley MLS Cup Photo Shoot. CLICK HERE to check out all of the rooftop pictures!
