Senior, Sydney Miramontez said, “I think that it is a really positive opportunity for Kansas City to have a women’s professional team to inspire young female athletes.”

The “Blues” play all of their home games at Shawnee Mission District Activity Complex located at Shawnee Mission North.

“Watching people you see on TV, and then seeing them play in person is a really good experience.  It gives you something to strive for,” said Senior, Morgan Shupe.

The new team is a positive addition to the Kansas City area.
