Five Reasons We Loved the Sporting KC Tour

The MoKan NAMA Chapter was excited to tour the Sporting Kansas City Stadium, Wednesday, September 25, and we definitely learned a thing or two!

1.  Sporting KC is 100 percent locally-owned. The owners decided they wanted their suite to be in the corner because corner seats are often the hardest to sell. There is one silver seat in the owner’s suite that is designated for a different child each game (chosen through the Victory Project) that is either battling cancer or has beaten cancer.

2.  Sporting KC players are the only soccer team that participates in Shakeology. Player’s blood is drawn at the beginning of the year and shakes are created with vitamins and nutrients specific to their needs. They drink the custom shakes before, during and after games.

3.  The players and coaches sit in custom-designed chairs during the game, which cost $2,000 apiece. They are designed by the same company that designs the seats used in Ferraris!

4.  Sporting KC sold more merchandise than the LA Galaxy when David Beckham was on their roster.

5.  The three practice fields at Swope Park offer three different types of turf and grass, so that the players are prepared when they are on the road. The field they practice on depends on their upcoming game schedule.
