FC Kansas City is making the move to the newly-named Children’s Mercy Park.
For two nights, anyway.
The two-time defending National Women’s Soccer League champions will open their 2016 season inside the home of Sporting Kansas City with a match against Western New York on April 16 at 7:30 p.m.
The Blues will return to Children’s Mercy Park on Sept. 4 for a match against Sky Blue FC. That game starts at 3 p.m.
Never miss a local story.
“We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of playing at Children’s Mercy Park last year, and we are excited to return this season,” general manager Huw Williams said in a news release. “It is clearly one of the best soccer venues in this country, and we are thrilled to showcase our team in such a great location.”
FC Kansas City will play the remainder of its home matches at Swope Soccer Village for the second consecutive season.
