Kansas City is a sports town through and through. From the loudest fans in the country at Arrowhead Stadium to the fast action at Kansas Speedway, it’s easy to see the city’s passion for sports. And there’s no better way to get into the games than with a group of coworkers, friends or family. Luckily, there are plenty of sports-related group activities that make enjoying it all fun and easy.
If you’re a football fan, Arrowhead Stadium is where you want to be. Bring your group to tour the home of the Kansas City Chiefs for a day of pigskin fun. Sure, you could get group tickets for a Sunday afternoon game. But you could get even closer to the field by renting out the stadium for a group event. Get a guided tour of the facilities or head straight to the field for some friendly competition. Kick field goals, run routes, catch punts—enjoy a whole playbook of football activities to execute right on the field.
Arrowhead Stadium isn’t the only football in Kansas City. The city is also home of the 2013 MLS Cup Champions, Sporting Kansas City. Located on the west end of the city, Sporting Park is right across the street from some of Kansas City’s best shopping at Legends Outlets. Browse some shops and then take a tour of the stadium. Not only is it one of the world’s newest soccer stadiums, it’s one of the most advanced. See just how this architectural marvel came to be while learning about everything from the locker room to the field’s heated grass.
Right next to Sporting Park, the Kansas Speedway offers even more fast-paced fun. The track is home to two different NASCAR races in a year. And when there isn’t a race going on, it’s a playground for groups to test out their driving skills. Bring your group to see what it’s really like to hit 200 mph in a racecar. If you’re not feeling that ambitious, even a tour around the facilities makes for a fun day.
The fourth and final professional sports site in Kansas City is Kauffman Stadium, home of the Royals. Much like Arrowhead, the stadium is available for groups to host unforgettable events. Recently renovated, Kauffman Stadium has some of the most unique features in Major League Baseball. If you’re not trying to take a tour or host an event, there’s always discounted group tickets to see the boys in blue play.
Whatever sport you’re into, there’s a place for you and your group to enjoy it in Kansas City.
