The owners of the Kansas City NWSL, founded a year ago, are also planning a training center
hey Kansas City NWSL, City Resident Women’s Team Kansas City, in Missouri, took an important step towards sports in America. The owners announced last Tuesday, the 26th, that they would be building a stadium for the team. It is the first project of its kind in the country, as the women’s team in the National Women’s Football League uses either men’s teams or a government-built football stadium. Today they play in the Field of Legends and share it with the city’s baseball team. According to the statement, the stadium is expected to cost $70 million ($394 million at current prices) and will be built on a seven-acre site on the Berkeley Riverfront. It will accommodate 11,000 people and will open in 2024.
The owners of the Kansas City NWSL founded the team less than a year ago and have made some changes since then. Last month, they also announced the construction of a $15 million (R$84 million) training center for the team with two football fields. “This transformation goes beyond this building and this project. It really is a statement of how much we believe in Kansas City and how much we believe in these athletes,” said team co-owner and co-founder Angie Long Said. League is Rookie, Kansas Lanterns. Three wins, seven draws and 13 losses in 23 matches.
