Kansas City Current debut new name, NWSL specific stadium

NWSL expansion team Kansas City will commence their second season with a new identity after changing the team name to Kansas City Current.

The new title was announced at halftime of the team’s 3-0 home loss to Seattle Reign Saturday night. Administration admitted they chose the name after listening to hundreds of suggestions from fans.

“The feedback indicated that the name and crest needed to be authentically grounded in classic Kansas City while representing the forward momentum of a city on the rise. It also needed to reflect the elite level of play, power and determination of the players,” the club said in a statement.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his fianceé, Brittany Matthews, helped the team reveal the new name at halftime. Matthews is a club founder and owner who played college soccer at UT Tyler, and for one season professionally in Iceland.
