It's a good showing for Kansas City because they're in the running for the 2018 or 2022 World Cup. They're trying to prove that Kansas City is a soccer town (as well as a football and/or baseball town).

Kansas City will have another chance summer to show off their hosting skills when the world's most popular sports team -- Manchester United -- comes to Arrowhead in July.
