Established in 2007, the Sporting KC Academy is an MLS Academy comprised of six teams. Many of our academy players come from the KC metro area, while others come from around the world. With the growth of the Academy and the success of the program, we now have several players seeking to relocate from various states and countries to be part of our academy. With this transformation, we are looking for host families to welcome these academy players into their homes. The host families will provide a safe and supportive environment that will allow the player to focus on his academics and soccer achievements.

The Sporting KC Academy Residential Program recognizes our current host families in-stadium at home matches throughout the year. Meet some of our 2024 host families below!
