Sporting K.C.'s Heineman: Livestrong Sporting Park Name Will Remain

MLS Sporting K.C. CEO Robb Heineman said that the club plans to "retain their Livestrong stadium name" despite the recent evidence of Lance Armstrong's PED use. Under the deal that began in '11, the club agreed to donate $7.5M over six years to the Livestrong Foundation. Heineman said that the charity "did good work for cancer sufferers despite all the adverse publicity surrounding Armstrong." Heineman: "We've got an agreement for another four years for it to be Livestrong Sporting Park" (REUTERS, 10/11).
