The Kansas City Shock announced that they had secured a home field for their inaugural 2013 season. The Kansas City Shock will play their four home games and one exhibition game at the Kansas City Kansas Community College.
The Kansas City Kansas Community College is a mere five mile from Legends and is coming off a $4 million dollar renovation. The Kansas City Shock will be the first team, other then the Community College, to play on the pitch starting at the end of May.
“KCK was a hidden jewel,” said Shock CEO Shawn Daugherty. “It felt as if no one knew about this field. What I love the most is that we’re both new and building. In a strange way the field and our program compliment one another; we are works in progress aiming towards an incredible future. It is an honor to work with a soccer program as dedicated to growing the game as the coaching staff at KCKCC. The future appears bright for all parties.”
The pitch is soccer specific and features no other sport markings. It also features new locker rooms and build-to-expand bleacher seating.
