In need of a bit of a run to get back into the race in the crowded Western Conference, Sporting KC went on the offensive in the month of May.

Unbeaten in the month with three victories, SKC snagged 11 points in five games to earn recognition as May’s SBI MLS Team of the Month

Led by four-goal outbursts against both the New England Revolution and FC Dallas, SKC brought the firepower in May, led by Dom Dwyer, Benny Feilhaber and Krisztian Nemeth. Meanwhile, the month also yielded three clean sheets, including a scoreless draw against the Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field.

An unblemished month was more than enough to earn SKC honors as Team of the Month, beating out fellow contenders in the Sounders and Toronto FC.


What did you think of Sporting KC’s performance this past month? Which team impressed you most in the month of May?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. I think that Manager/Head Coach Vermes, the coaching staff and Team Captain Matt Besler do a wonderful job of working around player injuries. Always working together as a team….. coming up with the best scenario and play by play. Congratulations to a team I have been supporting for years….Sporting Kansas City!!! 🙂

  2. Facing horrible injuries Vermes is really looking like a genius. Hopefully we can keep it up when we lose 4 starters to Gold Cup.

  3. SKC sure look like a well balanced team, I’m not sure what depth they have if they end up with injuries but so far so good. They will be in the mix at the end with Seattle, LA and NE.
