The KC Streetcar Authority is ready to kick off the 2020 Sporting Kansas City season with a specially designed Sporting Streetcar as part of the club's One Sporting Way campaign.
Streetcar 803 will be wrapped in a Sporting Blue and Dark Indigo design highlighted by images of the team's seven major championship trophies, the state line brand element found in the Sporting KC crest and the Swiss Dot pattern seen on this year's secondary kit.
The Sporting Streetcar will officially roll out on Friday, February 28 on the eve of Sporting Kansas City's season opener in Vancouver, and the launch will be celebrated from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with Sporting KC brand ambassadors and the team's mascot, Blue, handing out passports with the following Sporting Specials (valid until March 8 at participating locations):
- $5 Sporting KC Ice Water & Horsefeather at J. Rieger & Co.
- Buy one, get one Michelob Ultras at Bar K
- $6 margherita pizza and $6 Sporting Negroni at Il Lazzarone
- $5 off $20+ at BRGR
- $2 off appetizers and $4 Sporting drink specials at No Other Pub
- Free any size drip coffee at Parisi
In addition, there will be a pop-up Sporting KC event at the Power & Light District streetcar stop at 14th and Main Street from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m on Friday. Fans are encouraged to stop by for selfies in The Photo Bus and the opportunity to shop Sporting KC merchandise.
The 2.2-mile streetcar route runs seven days a week through the heart of downtown Kansas City between River Market on the north end to Union Station and Crown Center on the south end. The streetcar system has a daily average ridership of approximately 6,100 and earlier this month completed its 8,000,000th passenger trip since opening in May 2016.
