Sporting Kansas City History

Kansas City was a charter member of MLS. The club was initially owned by Lamar Hunt – namesake of the U.S. Open Cup, and founder of the 1960s American Football League, Kansas City Chiefs, and a key figure in the original NASL. Hunt also owned the Dallas and Columbus franchises in MLS’s early years.

KC began play in 1996 as the Kansas City Wiz, at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. This name lasted just one year when it was changed to the Wizards. The club’s name and rainbow-themed kits (references to the Wizard of Oz) are hallmarks of 1990s MLS visuals.

The Wizards won the Supporters’ Shield, and MLS Cup, in 2000, their first major trophies. They’d add a U.S. Open Cup in 2004, completing the set of the main three domestic honors.

In 2008, KC moved their games across state lines to CommunityAmerica Ballpark in Kansas City, Kansas. This made them the first, and so far only, major American pro sports team to play home games in the state.

2011 marked the dawn of a new era for the club. They adopted an entirely new identity as Sporting Kansas City (despite not actually participating in any other sports besides soccer, as most “Sporting” clubs worldwide do). And they opened Children’s Mercy Park, now their permanent home ground.

On-field success has continued as Sporting, with an MLS Cup triumph in 2013, and USOC wins in 2012, 2015, and 2017.
