National Training and Coaching Development Center

The newest crown jewel of American soccer is taking shape right here in Kansas City, Kansas.

The construction of the National Training and Coaching Development Center fulfills a vision shared by Sporting Club, U.S. Soccer and Children’s Mercy to build a first-class environment to develop elite players, coaches and referees of all ages. 

Set to open in December, the state-of-the-art NTCDC will become the new, expansive training home of Sporting Kansas City, capable of hosting clubs and national teams from around the world thanks to its stunning facilities and countless cutting-edge amenities. It will also accommodate the Children’s Mercy Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center and the U.S. Soccer National Coaching Education Center, making Kansas City the hub for youth athlete sports medicine services and overall soccer development in the United States.

Day by day, month by month, the NTCDC inches closer and closer to completion — consisting of five full-size fields, an 80,000-square-foot building and the nearby Wyandotte Youth Soccer Complex. As this exciting process unfolds, SportingKC.com will provide a feature series showcasing the various components of Kansas City’s latest flagship soccer venture.
