For the Glory KC is back with the 63rd episode of the show!

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City didn’t do a darn thing this week, but we still found stuff to talk about. There was a minor rumor, already covered here on KCSJ, about Gadi Kinda. MLS Commissioner Don Garber gave his State of the League address, and he dropped a few nuggets:

  • The MLS schedule is coming December 20th!!
  • There is no break for Copa America in 2024
  • No fourth Designated Player is coming, but rule changes are
  • How to deal with the 2026 World Cup schedule
  • MLS Expansion (Phoenix, Tampa and others mentioned)
  • and more!

Then we moved over and talked about the Twitter Mailbag. Next time we’ll have to expand to Instagram and the comments on the KC Soccer Journal. We took a lot of questions on youth development, Peter Vermes, offseason moves that are done and are still to come, stadium experiences and more.

Finally, we get to the Digital Crawl. We breeze through the following topics:

  • US Soccer bidding on the 2027 Women’s World Cup
  • Other US international results
  • The KC Current made a couple announcements
  • and Logan Ndenbe got engaged! Congratulations!

Here is a quick rundown of topics (and approximate start times):

  • Gadi Kinda Update – 5:58
  • Don Garber’s State of the League – 13:02
  • Sporting KC Mailbag – 23:22
  • Digital Crawl – 1:08:02
