Revs trade Feilhaber to Sporting K.C.

The Revolution announced Tuesday that they traded midfielder Benny Feilhaber to Sporting Kansas City in exchange for allocation money and Sporting KC’s first-round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft and its second-round pick in the 2015 SuperDraft.

Feilhaber played in 52 games with the Revs after being acquired in April 2011 through the allocation process. He scored five goals and added nine assists for the Revs.

“We've been working on several options with Benny for a few months and we feel this trade with Kansas City is the most beneficial outcome for the Revs,” Revolution General Manager Michael Burns said. “This move allows us greater roster flexibility in both 2013 and beyond.”
