Camp Cauldron
Mar 21, 2015

The Cauldron exists to support Sporting Kansas City but we love any soccer happening in this area which includes FCKC. We are so impressed with what the ladies of FCKC have done bringing a championship to Kansas City all while being supported by our counter parts the Blue Crew. FCKC will playing their season opener at Sporting Park on Sunday April 12th. When we looked at the schedule and realized Sporting Kansas City was playing the evening before we got an idea. Camp Cauldron.

Here we go.
Mar 8, 2015
As I sit on a plane headed to KC to join all of you I had some thoughts to spit out.

Here we are, just a short while from the opening of the gates and the pouring in of thousands of dedicated Sporting Kansas City Supporters. The long offseason will be behind us and we will be locked on one goal; to lift the men that wear the crest of our club on their chest to victory; to win all the trophies because we like hardware.

As we do this we take another step down the road that is now...
Happy Ticket Day.
Feb 8, 2015
We are about a half hour away from tickets going live. Just a refresher for everyone on buying tickets.
2105 Season Meeting
Jan 7, 2015
It's 2015, welcome to the future my friends.

It seems like only yesterday we were spilling tears at the end of the 2014 campaign. Though the season did not end the way that we had all hoped its a new year and its time to get back on top. There have been many changes to the team since that final day and in this offseason there have been many ongoing changes to the Cauldron.

In order to get things rolling we want to invite all current members of the CCSA (Cauldron Ci...

Gameday, the day we all look forward to. Some so they can pick apart every decision on the field. Most because we get to be reunited with the community that we have built over many years.

Tonight @Johnnys
Dec 6, 2013
Ok folks we are just hours away from the party to kick off the wait until the tailgate before the pre-game before the MLS Cup.

First, we want to welcome our friends, and 90 minute enemies, from Salt Lake to party with us tonight. Welcoming traveling fans has always been a highlight of this group. We believe that supporters across the league should be united outside of the stadium.

As always we will have $4 Boulevard Pilsner and 80 Acre Schooners along with regular domestics.
Dec 6, 2013
Tomorrow we push to the summit. For some of us this is an endeavor stretching more than a decade. For others this is all still new. Regardless, here we stand, together, united behind the city and team that we love.

The story of the rebirth of this team and its fans has been told. It has been written by you, with your voices. You have traveled in staggering numbers to every game this team played on the road. You have drank all the beer.

Tomorrow we write the final chapter to this ...
Ticket Update
Dec 1, 2013
Good news everyone. We know that many of you did not get tickets in either of the sales that we had. While the MS is absolutely sold out we were able to pick up a number of Standing Room Only Tickets. We know that everyone wants to be down in the Cauldron but its just not going to happen. Being there for the game is still a better option than not being there. We will release these tickets using the same methodology as the last release. These tickets will be posted on Tuesday at 10am. They will g...
Ticket Mess
Nov 26, 2013
Thank you for taking a moment to read this. First let me say that I am sorry for the inconvenience that many of you suffered during the ticket purchasing process today. We strive to make things as smooth as possible, and we certainly understand that this morning was not smooth.

Our web team has gone back through the data to see what caused such a hassle. First, some hard numbers for clarity. The Cauldron has just over 2000 members, and only 500 tickets were posted. This means...
Nov 6, 2013
Today is not just another day. Today is a day that your city needs your voice. Today we as a community show our ability to influence a game. It’s time to put on your blue, it’s time to lose your voice, it’s time to be loud.

For the third year in a row we come to the playoffs. We are down but we are not out because we get to play in our home. This is our HOME. We waited for 15 years to have a home. We were lost in the cavernous Arrowhead. We were ignored i...

Know Your Club History
Aug 3, 2013
The Club's recent on and off the field success has put a lot of focus on telling the story of what soccer has become in Kansas City. The story of today is a great one but you can't forget the stories of the past. Three individuals will be honored at halftime today for their contribution to the game on a local and international level.

We would like to encourage all of Cauldron City to stick around during half time and show support for those who paved the way. If you are a newer fan tak...

Ticket and Site update.
Feb 24, 2013
Our crack Internet team has been hard at work to correct the problems from yesterday.
They identified several issues. One of the biggest was people trying to write script to get around the membership requirement. The coding "attacks" on the page basically locked everything up and then nothing could be processed. If you are the type of person that would try this, we want you to know we have an impressive counter hacking team waiting to destroy you. Here they are, don't mess with them...

The long thought dump
Feb 7, 2013

I want to take a second or 10 minutes to elaborate on the need for the CCSA, what informed this decision, and what generally motivates my decision making other than a drunken vision of utopian supporters culture. Over the years there have been multiple structures to this supporters group. There is an in depth account of the evolution of the Cauldron and its history on the website. Structurally the group has been in the form of LLC's and Non Profits. In the current structure the Cauldr...

Playoff tickets - Here is the deal. There will be 300 single game tickets that are available via the Cauldron. This is a choice made together between Myself and the Director of Ticketing. There was almost %100 purchase rate from existing STH's. That leaves roughly 400 tickets available in the section. Those that had put deposits on 2013 season tickets in the MS were also given the opportunity to purchase 3 game packs. It is my belief and Jake, the director of ticketing, agrees with me that offer...

USOC Scarf Update
Sep 10, 2012
I want to update everyone on what is going on with the USOC Scarves.
Once they went into production the machine that weaves the scarfs broke. Unfortunately the vendor that we are using for these only has one machine that can do more than 4 colors. We want the scarf to look as good as it did on the night of the game so we waited to have it fixed. Teh company has flown someone to England where they are produced from Italy and the machine is repaired. They have been running them all we...
