Did you know that we have an American professional women’s soccer team right here in Kansas City? It began as an expansion team in the National Women’s Soccer League in 2021.
A Kansas City-based ownership group led by financial executives Angie and Chris Long took advantage to secure an expansion team along with the Royals’ player-related assets on December 7, 2020. Brittany Matthews, fiancée of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and former college soccer player at University of Texas at Tyler, purchased a stake in the team as well.
Kansas City plays home matches at the Field of Legends in Kansas City, Kansas. The stadium will have a capacity of 10,385 for soccer matches. Tickets are affordable and family friendly.
The team has three Olympians, gold medal winners! Chloe Logarzo, Australia, Katie Bowen, New Zealand and Desiree Scott, Canada right here in our home town.
The Women Who Mean Business were recently invited to see the players win 2 – 1 against the Racing Louisville. What a fun night, and we even spotted Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews with their baby cheering the team on.
They are on a mission for our city and soccer fans.
This is a chance to raise the profile of women’s professional sports and show everyone that Kansas City is the Soccer Capital of America.
Let’s support them!
