Sporting Kansas City extends contract for manager and technical director Peter Vermes

Sporting Kansas City announced today the extension of Peter Vermes’ contract as manager and technical director of the club through the 2017 MLS season.

http://www.sportingkc.com/news/2013/...r-peter-vermes



“What's been important for us is continuity on and off the field and this decision allows us to keep that continuity in place for the foreseeable future,” Sporting Club CEO Robb Heineman said. “We love that Peter has always been a long-term thinker and I believe the building blocks around turning this into a great organization long-term are in place. Having another four years to advance this cause is going to be very valuable to the team. We love that Peter has the commitment that he has to this city, this organization and to the development of the players.”

“We have an incredible ownership group. Their vision and follow-thru on all the initiatives they bring to this organization is incredible,” Vermes said. “Their passion for what this club is and for making it happen is the reason we sit here today as one of the best organizations in Major League Soccer. I'm excited to be a part of it and to continue helping to grow this organization. It's a proud moment for me.”

Vermes has overseen all soccer operations for the club since being named technical director in November 2006 and is the longest tenured technical director in MLS. In 2009, Vermes became the team’s manager and his .557 winning percentage over five seasons is the best in team history and sixth best all-time among MLS coaches with a minimum of one full season on the sidelines.

He has led Sporting Kansas City to first place finishes in the Eastern Conference each of the past two years and currently has the club in contention for the Supporters’ Shield with a four-point lead atop the East in 2013. Under Vermes direction, Sporting Kansas City claimed the team’s first trophy in eight years with the 2012 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup championship and qualified to represent Major League Soccer in the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League.

An MLS Coach of the Year finalist in 2011 and 2012, Vermes was selected to lead the MLS Generation adidas tour in 2011 to the Netherlands and will serve as the head coach for the MLS All-Stars against Italy’s AS Roma during the 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game at Sporting Park on July 31.

Vermes’ distinguished playing career included 67 appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team as he represented the United States at the 1988 Olympics and 1990 FIFA World Cup. He became the first American to play in the first divisions of Hungary and Holland, while also spending four seasons in the Spanish second division before returning for Major League Soccer’s inaugural season in 1996. In seven MLS seasons, he started 208 of his 209 appearances in MLS competition (including playoffs) with 11 goals and 19 assists, and reached the postseason in all seven campaigns.

Vermes arrived in Kansas City ahead of the historic 2000 season, helping lead the club to the Supporters Shield and MLS Cup double and earning MLS All-Star, Best XI and Defender of the Year honors. He retired following the 2002 season, his third in Kansas City, and was elected into the National Soccer Hall of Fame on the Veteran ballot earlier

The soccer team has its own thread icon and everything.

You're so mad.

Check out the New York Times piece on the team in the next thread I am making. Decent read.

Interestingly enough that is the switch. When it was at Arrowhead and CAB it was failing by catering to families and soccer moms. That is not the focus anymore.

The crowd at SKC games are young diehard sports fans at the core with expendable income.

Hell, for that matter, it's a CHIEFS board. Let's get rid of all the KU, Mizzou, and K State threads too. And no one wants to read any pop culture, news, or science food threads.

Seriously, is it really that hard to not open a thread you're not interested in?

Not mad at all. Just voicing my opinion.

My memory is recalling that you made it in the final rounds of the Douche of the Year.

I understand the soccer hate, I really do. I used to be just like you. I never played it growing up. I always thought it was boring and kind of girly.

But SKC forced me to at least notice them. Suddenly there was a team in KC that was genuinely obsessed with winning.

I still don't follow international soccer and I probably only go to 1 or 2 games a year. But I'll watch a lot of the games on TV and keep up with the team.

I challenge any one of the "soccer sucks - no one cares" crowd to go to a game at Sporting Park if you haven't been. If you have a terrible time, I'll buy you a beer and you can bitch all you want about the only winning franchise in town.

The best part about soccer is that if they edit the games to only show the action shots then you could watch an entire game in about three minutes.

When that is actually done the results are not what you would think they are.

Ok that sounds good to me.

No it is not hard. But I am not in the minority in my feelings just sharing.

There are plenty of chances to talk about a team that hasn't won a post season game since 1994 (I was there)

So you're saying the young diehards are going to use their expendable income on my minivans?

I don't see the problem here.
