The new Kansas City Current stadium will be a world-first
Rising up next to the Missouri Riverfront, the KC Current stadium will be the first in the world specifically for professional woman’s soccer. After it opens next year, the team's new owners also hope it will help change the game as a whole.
Women’s professional soccer is drawing record attendance and spawning expansion teams next year. But despite the growing popularity, no U.S. team plays in a stadium of its own. KCUR’s Frank Morris reports a new stadium going up on the Missouri River in Kansas City will change that, and maybe even launch a new era in woman’s sports.
