Pinnacle opens today with inaugural Sporting KC training session at new $75-million facility

Pinnacle — a brand new facility located a mile from Children’s Mercy Park and Wyandotte Sporting Fields in Kansas City, Kansas — officially opened today when Sporting Kansas City trained at the $75-million, world-class venue for the first time.

Formerly the National Training and Coaching Development Center, Pinnacle is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between a professional sports team (Sporting KC), a national sports federation (U.S. Soccer) and a sports medicine provider (Children’s Mercy). The state-of-the-art complex will welcome tens of thousands of visitors annually as a premier destination for the development of elite players, coaches and referees of all ages.

In addition to serving as the new training home of Sporting KC, Pinnacle accommodates the Children’s Mercy Sports Medicine Center at Village West and the U.S. Soccer National Development Center.

Among Pinnacle’s numerous amenities are five full-size soccer fields, a cutting-edge sports performance lab, an expansive sports performance gymnasium and multiple spaces uniquely specialized for coaching education, including a two-story coaching pavilion.
