A look at who is paid too much, who is paid too little and all the other little nuggets from the 2023 Sporting KC salary released.

For the Glory KC is back with the 34th episode of the show!

On this week’s BONUS episode, Sporting Kansas City and the rest of MLS have their salary data released. First, to follow along, I recommend reading the Sporting KC salary release (and the MLS full salary release wouldn’t hurt either). Sheena and I go over a bunch of salary related topics, including:

  • Who is the most overpaid
  • Who is the most underpaid
  • The biggest surprises
  • How the Designated Player and U-22 Initiative color some of these numbers
  • Comparisons between 2023 and 2022
  • What all the new guys are making
  • and More!

No timestamps on this one since it’s just an entire podcast dedicated to one subject. We hope you enjoy the bonus content so we can focus on LAFC and St. Louis City SC on Sunday’s episode.
