Ewing & Muriel Kauffman, Kauffman Stadium - Kansas City

Ewing & Muriel Kauffman, Kauffman Stadium

Kauffman Stadium Kansas City Royals Review

Home of the American League's Kansas City Royals, Kauffman Stadium remains one of the country's most beautiful venue in which to watch a baseball game. In recent years since the death of long-time owner Ewing Kauffman, the team's years of glory and success have given way to years of futility. However, a recent change in management has left fans cautiously optimistic.

Ewing and Muriel Kauffman were great for Kansas City. Not only did they bring championship Major League Baseball to KC, but they cared deeply for the city and its peoples. They contributed mightily to such causes as education for the poor and for the arts.

Directions: Truman Sports Complex on Interstate 70 east of Kansas City

Kemper Arena - Kansas City
Kemper Arena Kemper Arena Review

Kansas City has traditionally been a strong college basketball town, having hosted more NCAA national championship basketball games than any other city. There are four major universities in the area fielding basketball teams, including my alma mater, the University of Kansas, a perennial national power in the sport. None of these teams make their home at Kemper, but the arena is the scene of many tournaments and special matches such as that pictured between Kansas U. and the University of Oregon.

Kemper Arena is due to be replaced in 2007 by a state of the art new venue located in the heart of downtown KC. Other sports at Kemper include indoor soccer, minor league hockey, and rodeo.

Football (Soccer), American Style Kansas City Wizards Review

Kansas City is home to the Wizards of Major League Soccer. Games are played at Arrowhead Stadium (east of KC on Interstate 70) from April through September. See Wizards stars such as Preki, Tony Meola, Chris Klein, Josh Wolf, Nick Garcia, Diego Gutierrez, Kerry Zavagnin, and more.

If you've never seen the world's favorite sport, you've got to give it a try. If you're a life-long fan visiting from another country, you should see how well the American game and American players are developing.

Unfortunate negative: Arrowhead Stadium is designed for American Football - not futbol, and can seat almost 80,000 spectators. It's not a great venue for the game, but it's all we've got at present.

Directions: Wizards home games are played at Arrowhead Statium, also home of the Kansas City Chiefs NFL club. It is located a few miles east of KC on Interstate 70.
