University of Missouri-Kansas City fans are getting a fresh way to show their pride, thanks to a new line of UMKC gear. A mix of UMKC clothes, flags and car accessories will soon be available at select locations of the Rally House and Kansas Sampler.
The university will kick off the new line with a launch party from 6-7:30 p.m., June 12, at the Kansas Sampler near Oak Park Mall at 9750 Quivira Rd., Lenexa, Kan. The celebration will include special guests Chancellor Leo Morton, new men’s basketball Coach Kareem Richardson and Kasey the Kangaroo.
The line will be available online and in the Rally House Plaza location at 452 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, Mo., and the Kansas Sampler near Oak Park Mall. UMKC gear also will continue to be available through the UMKC Bookstore, the Athletics website and the Alumni Association website.
Perhaps the best news for UMKC fans is that this is just the first step in the right direction. Anne Hartung Spenner, vice chancellor for Strategic Marketing and Communications, envisions an even greater UMKC presence in local stores.
