Kansas City NWSL announced the team will play its home matches at Children’s Mercy Park in 2022. KC NWSL is currently playing its Inaugural Season at Legends Field, where the team is undefeated in its last four appearances. The team will close out the 2021 regular season at Legends Field with four home matches in October.
“We are incredibly grateful to Mark Brandmeyer and the entire Legends Field staff and crew for making our Inaugural season so special,” said KC NWSL Founder & Co-Owner Chris Long. “They stepped up in a monumental way when we brought the team to Kansas City last December and had to be on the field in only 140 days. Mark and his staff are forever a part of our history and KC NWSL family, helping create a memorable first season for our fans.”
Children’s Mercy Park is the home of Sporting Kansas City. The soccer-specific stadium opened in 2011 and seats 18,467 for soccer matches. Children’s Mercy Park has been home to the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National teams multiple times in addition to CONCACAF Champions League, Gold Cup, FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and Olympics Qualifiers.
“We are thrilled to move our home matches to Children’s Mercy Park,” said Amber Cox, KC NWSL COO. “When the opportunity materialized for the 2022 season to move to one of the best soccer stadiums in the world, we felt it made sense, especially given our player-first approach. We’re excited to offer soccer fans in Kansas City a full menu of both men’s and women’s soccer at Children’s Mercy Park in 2022.”
Kansas City is on the road Sept. 26 to face the Washington Spirit at 4 p.m. CT before returning on Oct. 2 to face the Houston Dash at 7 p.m. CT. For more information and tickets for the four remaining matches in 2021 or 2022 matches at Children’s Mercury Park, visit KCWoSo.com or call 913-340-9513.
