Sporting KC Tickets
At Children's Mercy Park, over 18,460 SKC fans can take part in the stadium and cheer on their beloved soccer players. With that many seats, there are that many options available for every game. From section seats to GA and from tamed to wild areas, you'll find exactly the tickets you want for your budget and cheering needs.
There are two different types of seats inside Children's Mercy: sectional seats or GA. However the GA seats include a special area called the Cauldron!
Sectioned seats are along the sidelines of the field. Section 101-113 are behind the teams. Sections 126-134 are located on the sideline facing the teams. Each seat is reserved based on which ticket you purchase. You are guaranteed your seat during the entire game. These seats are ideal for getting a visual of every part of the field. You can see all the action and get views of both ends on the field.
These GA seats are a bit more complicated. Because they are general admission, it is first come first serve. However, there are two different GA seating areas. Over on the Southwest side is the calm section of GA. On the Northeast side of the stadium is the Cauldron.
The cauldron is the area of SKC where the biggest, most die-hard fans reside. There are massive drums, crazy outfits, fun signs, lots of cheers and constant standing. If you haven't experienced the cauldron yet, make this year the year to go. In order to sit here, buy the GA seats and go early and sit in the bleachers on the northwest end of the stadium (side closest to Great Wolf Lodge).
Children's Mercy Park is located next to the Legends Outlet Mall and has parking all around the stadium. There are options to pay for parking anywhere from $5 to $40. The price varies per game. All parking lots open three hours prior to game time and close two hours after game end.
Be cautious of parking in the Legends shopping. The Legends, Great Wolf Lodge Resort and Nebraska Furniture Mart all tow cars if they find fans from the game are parking in their lots. If you find parking in the paid sections, but the spot is far away, there are free shuttles running back and forth! Lots I, J and Community America Ballpark offer the free shuttle. Even if you park over in Kansas Speedway parking, the shuttles will come over to get you.
Sporting Kansas City History
Lamar Hunt, recognize that name? Probably. Lamar Hunt (founder of the Kansas City Chiefs and his son now owns the Kansas City Mavericks) founded the Kansas City MLS team. The team started as the Kansas City Wiz and played their first game inside Arrowhead on April 13, 1996. After the first season, the team extended their name to the Wizard. In the first few years of the MLS team in Kansas City, the Wizards were led by midfielder Preki. Preki eventually earned four MLS Best XI selections, with his first under the Kansas City Wiz.
In 2000 era, the Wizards underwent an extensive makeover and revamped the team. Starting in 2000, the Wizards started the year 10-0-2 and won the Supporters' Shield (regular season champion) and the 2000 MLS Cup. For each season following, the team advanced to postseason but couldn't retain any silverware added to the trophy case.
In a turn of events, by 2004 the Wizards grabbed hold of a scared championship trophy, claiming the title as the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. The following year, Hunt announced the decision to possibly sell the team. In 2006, OnGoal, LLC purchased the team and the franchise went through a makeover from within the team as well as within the business side. Former great of the Wizards, Peter Vermes, became the Technical Director and soon after, Curt Onalfo, was announced as the head coach. OnGoal wanted to show its commitment to Kansas City and established the world-class training center, Swope Park. By 2008, the CommunityAmerica Ballpark welcomed the Wizards as their home playing turf.
In 2009, Vermes took over as head coach and local, homegrown soccer star, Matt Besler was drafted in the first round of the MLS SuperDraft. By 2010, the club announced a new stadium plan to be built in Kansas City, KS with an $180 million budget for the new state-of-the-art stadium. By the end of 2010, the club announced a re-brand as Sporting Kansas City as well as the most recent recruit, the Mexican icon, Omar Bravo.
2011 brought excitement as a new team, with a new name, and a new stadium were to debut. This was the first true home game for the franchise as they finally had their own stadium. To keep the hype going, by 2013, Sporting KC claimed the MLS Cup championship and represented the MLS in the 2013-2014 CONCACAF Champions League. 2015 saw another Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup championship and Peter Vermes became the winningest coach of franchise history. In 2016, SKC set a club record for six straight appearances in the MLS Cup Playoffs. Again, SKC claimed the title Lamar Hunt Champions in 2017.
