Lance Armstrong to be stripped of Tour de France titles, will receive lifetime ban from cycling


I know this has nothing to do with the game of soccer, but it does have to do with the name of Sporting Kansas City's stadium, Livestrong Sporting Park, and if the club will want to continue to be associated with an organization founded by Lance Armstrong. For me, it's a no brainer. I have absolutely no problem with Sporting Kansas City being associated with Livestrong, a foundation that has raised millions of dollars in the battle to fight cancer. Did Armstrong take performance enhancing drugs that helped him win seven Tour de France titles? Maybe. But even if that's true, it doesn't change the positive impact his foundation has had. Sporting Kansas City and the Livestrong foundation agreed to a six year deal back in March of 2011.
