To celebrate the club’s landmark 25-year anniversary in Major League Soccer and the start of the 2021 season, Sporting Kansas City has launched a yearlong outdoor activation for supporters called Fountain City Foosball.
Over the course of the season, Sporting KC will place life-size foosball figures in prominent locations across the Kansas City metropolitan area and Midwest region. Fountain City Foosball will bring the classic table-based game of foosball to life, with each player featuring its own iconic jersey from Sporting KC history.
Each foosball player will feature a unique QR code that activates a coupon to one of Sporting’s local partners. Additionally, fans who visit each foosball player and scan every QR code will be entered into a drawing to win a $500 SportingStyle gift card.
As part of the Fountain City Foosball campaign, fans are encouraged to document their journey by taking foosball player photos and posting them to social media with the hashtag #OneSportingWay.
Fountain City Foosball is supported by Academy Sports + Outdoors, BRGR Kitchen + Bar, Domino’s, Guy’s Snacks, Hallmark, Kansas City Cattle Company, Parisi Coffee, Price Chopper, Taco Republic and Tohi Ventures.
Sporting will kick off the highly anticipated 2021 MLS season at the New York Red Bulls on April 17, the same night the club hosts its Season Kickoff presented by Michelob Ultra at Children’s Mercy Park. Manager Peter Vermes’ side will then host Orlando City SC in a marquee home opener on April 23. Tickets to Sporting’s first four regular season home matches are on sale at SeatGeek.com while supplies last.
