Stadium Improvements to Children’s Mercy Park

Sporting Kansas City and Children’s Mercy Park announced Monday that two new video boards have been installed in Children’s Mercy Park ahead of the 2024 MLS Regular Season. “An exceptional guest experience is the leading pillar of our enterprise,” said Dan Lolli, Sporting Kansas City Chief Operating Officer. “Our continued partnership with Daktronics will provide our fans with best-in-class video displays, enhancing the atmosphere for all events in the building. We’re excited to unveil these new elements to our fans in 2024 and continue soccer’s incredible momentum in the U.S. and especially in Kansas City.” The new main video board on the south end of the stadium is close to 35 feet high and 126 feet wide. What makes this video board special is the upper edge angles to match the stadium’s architecture.
