Player Specific Fan Clubs

**Updated Jan 2012**
These fan clubs use Twitter to help you learn more about your favorite Sporting KC players. They are all fan run, so they need your love and support to keep going. Check them out, give them a follow, some love and watering and they in turn will help shine a light on the great athletes on our team.

It will be interesting to see how many other fan accounts pop up over the years.  Also I wonder what will happen if a player gets traded, loaned, etc.  Personally I will always like this crew since they are really the first team I have gotten to know well, so I will continue to be interested in their career paths with or without Sporting KC.  Personally I think Matt Besler and CJ Sapong are next in line for a fan club. Happened soon after the original posting of this blog.
