The Major League Soccer All Star Game team was arriving in Kansas City Monday as the hype and festivities grow for Wednesday’s big game.

Sporting KC Coach Peter Vermes, who will coach the All Star team, told national and international media how proud he was about the success of soccer in Kansas City.           

Vermes has been in Kansas City since the team was called The Wizards, and played in Arrowhead Stadium.

He said the 80,000 seat venue dwarfed whatever crowd came out to see the team.
