Children's Mercy Park

Sporting Kansas City and Children's Mercy Park would like to alert fans to an update with regard to parking and tailgating on Sunday.


For this Sunday, along with the Tailgating Code of Conduct (listed below), parking that usually takes place at CommunityAmerica Ballpark will be relocated to the 2nd and 3rd levels of the parking garage and surface spots behind TJ MAXX located at the Legends.


Legends does not allow tailgating in those lots and therefore any fan who wishes to tailgate will need to do so at the Speedway Lots, which open at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.


In addition, due to high temperatures, supporters will be allowed to bring one 20oz. bottle of water into Children's Mercy Park on Sunday. The bottle must be sealed upon entering the stadium and the cap will be removed at the gate.


Although Sunday's game is on ESPN, the match will kick off at 2:08 p.m.
