KC Summer Guide: Cheering for the Home Team

KC Sports - Kansas City Summer Guide

This might be the year to not only continue supporting the Boys in Blue but find options beyond the Royals to enjoy as a family, including the littlest fans!

Kansas City Royals

Few things make for a better family outing in KC than a night at the K. Before you go, check out our advice: How to Enjoy a Royals Game Despite Your Kids and 5 Tips for Taking Your Kids to a Royals Game.  And don’t forget to join Sluggerrr’s Blue Crew for fun gear and ticket vouchers.

Sporting Kansas City

Sporting Kansas City, KC’s Major League Soccer team, is only growing in popularity each year. Games are exciting (and loud). Children two and younger can attend without a ticket. Strollers are welcome but must be checked at Guest Services during the game. Before you go, check out our guide to a family day at Sporting KC!

Kansas City T-Bones

If you’re looking for a sporting venue suitable for even the smallest members of your family, look no further than CommunityAmerica Ballpark and the Kansas City T-Bones. Highlights include their frequent family-friendly giveaways and promotions (PDF) as well as a fireworks display presented after each Saturday night game throughout the season.

FC Kansas City

If soccer is your sport of choice, then make plans to watch Kansas City’s professional women’s soccer team, FC Kansas City at the fantastic Swope Soccer Village.

Arrowhead Stadium Tours

If you’re missing the Chiefs, you can always tour Arrowhead Stadium, including the press box, locker room, field and more on Fridays and Saturdays year round! Be sure to check out our Guide to Kid Friendly Tours in KC for more fun ideas!

Sarah is mama to 9-year-old, Henry, 6-year-old Clark and 4-year-old Lucy. After growing up in Manhattan, Kansas (Go Cats!), she moved to Minnesota where she met her husband, Shea. Realizing how much she hated snow in May, she convinced him to move to Kansas City in 2010. Together they have lived in Midtown, Waldo, the Plaza before migrating to Johnson County. Sarah has her master’s in urban administration and is currently in the Kansas City Centurions program. In between the crazy, she likes to drink coffee, run, travel (but never to the same place twice), and experience all things Kansas City!
