Kansas City Current’s sparkling new $18 million facility shows the luxury female pro athletes have long been missing out

  • Kansas City Current of the National Women’s Soccer League has a sparkling new training complex.
  • The $18 million facility showcases the luxury that professional athletes have long missed.

The Kansas City Current have a new home.

Owners of the National Women’s Soccer League club invested $18 million to build a sparkling training facility in Riverside, Missouri — less than 10 miles from downtown Kansas City. The complex is the first built for an NWSL team and one of the few in the country dedicated exclusively to female professional athletes.

“This is not just a building for us. It’s a new home,” said NWSL veteran and Current defense attorney Kristen Edmonds at the dedication ceremony. “It’s ours – something we don’t have to share with a men’s team or a youth club that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the United States.

“To have this and to call it our own is very special, not just for Kansas City but for the growth of women’s football in general,” she added.

The training center – brought to life by female construction company Monarch Build – features expansive lawns, a sleek locker room, full kitchen, recovery hot tubs, a dazzling weight room and more. The facility not only showcases what female professional athletes have been missing out on for so long, but also represents what the future of women’s sport could be like with the right vision and investment.
