260 Community America Ballpark
The Kansas City T-Bones originally started as the Duluth-Superior Dukes when the Northern League was re-established in 1993. The decision was made to move the Dukes to Kansas City, KS and plans were made to build a ballpark in the Village West shopping area, adjacent to the Kansas Speedway. The team name and mascot were both selected in fan contests, both of which reflected the region’s strong ties to the meat industry. Titan Construction designed and built the award-winning CommunityAmerica Ballpark in a mere nine months and two days, in enough time to start the 2003 season. A T-Bones game is a unique and inexpensive event that provides an unforgettable experience for all.

261 Livestrong Park
2011 marked the most significant change in the club’s history as LIVESTRONG Sporting Park was completed, giving Sporting Kansas City their first true home for players and fans alike. In addition to the Designated Player signing of Bravo in the offseason, the club also brought in new faces from the market abroad who became key contributors such as Aurelien Collin and Julio Cesar. A ten-match road trip to start the season put Sporting Kansas City behind the eight ball in the Eastern Conference standings, but the opening of LIVESTRONG Sporting Park brought about a dramatic turnaround that saw the club climb all the way to the top of the conference by the time the regular season had concluded. Matt Besler was recognized as an MLS All-Star for the first time in his career, while forward C.J. Sapong took the League by storm, scoring five goals and contributing five assists on his way to being named 2011 MLS Rookie of the Year. Sporting KC soccer matches are a fun and exciting way to enjoy and support your local club.
