We have some new renderings of the new Kansas City Current stadium currently under construction, including a few looks at facility uses aside from hosting NWSL soccer.
KC Current Stadium is the first in the world purpose-built for a women’s professional sports team. The stadium and surrounding district is designed as a live entertainment destination on KC’s riverfront hosting events year-round, including concerts, other sporting events, farmers markets, art exhibitions and more. Here are new renderings showcasing two of those uses:
CONCERN VENUE–Views from KC Current Stadium will face inward to the pitch and outward toward the Missouri River, downtown Kansas City and the Bond Bridge. Depicted here is an evening concert from the upper east stands, as each side of the stadium embraces prime views toward a temporary stage for concerts and events, while also allowing views of the riverfront and downtown.
FARMERS MARKET–KC Current Stadium’s entry plaza will be a community asset, hosting year-round activations. Shown here with a farmers market configuration, the flexible plaza design will allow for many other uses throughout the year. On match days, the plaza will celebrate the Current brand, streamlining access for fans and visitors with clear views into the stadium through the main gates. On other days, the plaza will strategically provide space for community focused events and activations, providing a pedestrian connection to the future development to the West along the Berkley Riverfront.
The 11,500-capacity, $117-million stadium is under construction on a 7.08-acre site on the east end of Berkley Riverfront Park in Kansas City, Mo. in partnership with primary design and construction partners Generator Studio, JE Dunn and Monarch Build. The new stadium is expected to open for the 2024 season.
