The university has partnered with Sporting Kansas City, making UMKC Sporting KC’s only university partner. The collaboration will deliver a season filled with excitement, giveaways, contests, and a “UMKC Night at Sporting Park.”
This August, fans will participate in “Rally with the Roos,” a month-long contest. Ultimately, ten entrants will be randomly selected to win a “Rally with the Roos” package, which will include two tickets to a Sporting KC home game and an autographed Sporting KC soccer ball. The contest will be hosted on the Sporting KC website, and begins August 1.
The university will also take some of the spotlight on the final regular season game at Sporting Park. The October 18 game will be dubbed “UMKC Night at Sporting Park.” Fans will be treated to more than 10,000 giveaway items, courtesy of UMKC.
The partnership is a natural fit for both organizations. Sporting KC has proven to be a valued, positive force for Kansas City, just as UMKC has for 80 years. Moreover, Sporting Park is regularly filled with UMKC alumni, current and prospective students. There is a large overlap between UMKC and Sporting KC fans, specifically with UMKC’s alumni base and athletic department.
