The idea for the creation of the club was first brought up by sporting legend Lamar Hunt.

He was also the founding father of the World Championship Tennis. He was inducted in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1972, the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 1982 and the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1993. He set up the MLS in 1995 and decided to form his own soccer club as well. That is when he founded the Columbus Crew and the Kansas City Wizards.
Previously known as the Wiz and then the Wizards, it wasn’t until 2010 that the name Sporting was selected. Incepted in 1996, the franchise quickly established itself as one of the best in the league and started challenging for all the top prizes, right from the word go. Sporting managed to win the MLS Cup twice in 2000 and 2013 as well as the MLS Supporters' Shield in 2000.
