Central Park Mini-Pitch Opening
Tuesday, October 3, 2023
Central Park, Linwood Blvd. & Bales Ave.
Two new soccer mini-pitches will officially open in Centra Park as part of an effort to improve the health and well-being of the region’s youth through soccer. Led by the U.S. Soccer Foundation, several local and national partners teamed up to fund and install these mini-pitches—small, hard-court soccer fields that are uniquely suited for both organized and pick-up play. Local partners include Kansas City Current; Sporting KC; City of Kansas City; Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools. These projects also build on more than 650 mini-pitches the Foundation has installed nationwide on its path to opening 1,000 by 2026. National partners include: adidas, Black Women’s Player Collective, Black Players for Change, Musco Lighting, Target, and the U.S. Soccer Foundation.
