We’re making history in Kansas City. The Current are building the first stadium purpose-built for a National Women’s Soccer League team in the country. The stadium is expected to be complete in the spring of 2024. With a capacity of 11,500, it’s also the first stadium built for a single professional sports team in the history of downtown KC. Located next to Berkley Riverfront Park it will be easily accessible for all modes of transportation and the stadium will become a hub for the growth of the downtown KC and a more impactful future, including being a host city for the World Cup in 2026!

The Current training complex and staff facilities are also first of its kind in the world. Opened on June 21, 2022, it’s the first training complex built specifically for a women's professional sports team.

Founded in December 2020, the Kansas City Current is led by the ownership group of Angie Long, Chris Long and Brittany Mahomes. Their vision for what’s never been done before is setting the standard for not just the NWSL but the world of sports. We are seeking individuals who want to march on this mission with us as the world’s eyes are watching. We are making history in Kansas City and desire like-minded, high energy, driven individuals to join us on our journey.

Kansas City is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. It’s a city famous for its art, history, BBQ and has more fountains than Rome.
