Sporting Kansas City adds a new announcer

Sporting Kansas City's latest foreign signing will not take up an international slot on the roster. While there has been no official announcement, the news leaked through twitter yesterday. BBC Correspondent Callum Williams will join Sporting KC as a presenter and commentator for the teams TV broadcasts.

He is coming directly from covering Chesterfield's fight to be promoted to league 1. It will be interesting to see his take on the game, lack of promotion/relegation, the culture, supporters and everything in general. Hopefully he will quickly be coached to not call the team Kansas as so many foreign announcers do. Someone let him know about the whole Border War aspect of being in this town also.

How he adapts to being a team guy and not a true reporter could also be interesting.

Good luck Callum, welcome to Kansas City.
