Sporting KC Announces Partnership with Children's Hospital

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — MLS club Sporting Kansas City has announced a 10-year partnership with Children's Mercy Hospital that will include branding of its stadium and a pediatric sports medicine center. The team will now play at Children's Mercy Park, which has been known as Sporting Park ever since Livestrong was stripped of its naming rights following the Lance Armstrong doping scandal. The sports medicine center will be part of the 174-acre, $62 million National Training Center, which will break ground next spring. The training center will serve as the home of the U.S. Soccer Federation and its national teams. The partnership with Children's Mercy will also support Sporting Moves, a program designed to get children active, and the Victory Project, which helps kids dealing with serious illnesses. Sporting KC announced the agreement Thursday.
