Just over 180 days ago, women's professional soccer made its return to Kansas City. Led by Owners Angie Long, Chris Long and Brittany Matthews, Kansas City NWSL has enjoyed tremendous community and fan support. Last Wednesday, under the direction of Head Coach Huw Williams, the Club played its inaugural regular season home opener in front of over 5,000 fans at Legends Field.
"Our team at Union Broadcasting is thrilled to partner with KC NWSL for their inaugural season," said Chief Operating Officer Alok Srivastava. "We look forward to bringing the passionate soccer fans of Kansas City closer to the action through this exciting partnership and are glad to have women's professional soccer back thanks to the hard work and dedication of KC NWSL's ownership group."
The partnership kicked off last Sunday, with the team's match vs. the Orlando Pride airing on 810-WHB. KC NWSL can once again be found on 810-WHB on Sunday, June 6 when the squad takes on the Houston Dash at 1 p.m. CT at Legends Field. The remaining 10 matches will air on 810-WHB or ESPN Kansas City.
