If you’re a sports fanatic (like me), Kansas City must be a sports haven for you! Whether you love cheering on your favorite professional team (go Royals), or you are the starter for your work’s softball team, there are tons of games and events happening around our city to keep your summer sporty! Here are a few of my favorite sporting events happening around KC:
Royals at Kauffman Stadium: Our beloved KC baseball team’s 45th season is underway! Attending the Royals’ home games has always been a summer must for me. Aside from the great game of baseball, there’s always something happening at the stadium. From the summer fireworks to T-Shirt Tuesdays, the overall atmosphere is an experience you don’t want to miss out on. If you can, try and go on their next Buck Night, it’s my favorite!
Sporting KC: If you haven’t attended an MLS game yet, you’re missing out! Catch our team’s next home game at Children’s Mercy Park as they continue on their quest for the U.S. Open Cup! Click here to view their schedule. From their involvement in our community with their Blue KC Sporting Samaritans program to their fun promotional matches, I love cheering on this team for so many different reasons.
KC Olympics: Perhaps you’d rather get in on the action than cheer on the sidelines. Consider joining a sports league! This is a great, fun way for adults to exercise their love for sports or perhaps relive the glory days from a sporty past life. Get ready for the KC Olympics this summer by joining a team playing kickball, sand volleyball, softball, wiffle ball, or soccer!
Chiefs Preseason: While we’re still months out, I can’t wait for our KC Chiefs to kick back into gear! The excitement surrounding these first preseason games is the perfect way to close out your summer with a bang. We’ll get to see how the San Francisco 49ers do under their new coaching as our Chiefs take them on at Arrowhead Stadium!
What game are you most excited for this summer? While I’m #RaisedRoyal, I love supporting all of our KC teams! I sure am thankful for these summer nights filled with the cheers from our fanatic sports fans!
