Kansas City, KS ( - Sporting Kansas City announced Thursday that the club has signed defender Chance Myers to a new contract.

Myers is entering his seventh season with the club and is the second-longest tenured player on the Sporting Kansas City roster.

"Re-signing Chance was an important goal of ours in the offseason," Sporting manager Peter Vermes said. "We're looking forward to him entering training camp and another season with our team because he's been one of the core members of this group. We hope to continue the consistency that we've had over that time."

Playing at right-back, Myers has combined with Matt Besler, Aurelien Collin and Seth Sinovic to form a backline that has led Major League Soccer in fewest goals allowed each of the past two years. Sporting is 29-7-8 all-time in the MLS regular season with those four in the starting lineup and together they have started all 10 of the team's postseason matches over the last three years.
