KC Current

Kansas City Current 2024 Schedule

For a team that has yet to really earn a lot of notoriety for their on-field success, the Current will nonetheless have all eyes on them to open the 2024 NWSL regular season. The reason? CPKC Stadium—the first stadium dedicated to the use of a women’s professional soccer team. For as much as we fans can grumble about some disappointing personnel decisions, the KC ownership group absolutely deserves a lot of credit for investing in the growth of the women’s game in this meaningful way. Children’s Mercy Park has long stood as a pillar of excellence for domestic soccer and now CPKC Stadium helps further cement Kansas City’s status as the Soccer Capital of America.

It all kicks off on March 16 with a rematch of the 2022 NWSL final with Kansas City hosting the Portland Thorns. The league has given an exclusive window to this game and ABC is airing it nationally. Portland has been the proverbial thorn in KC’s side throughout the team’s history (including that championship match) until the Current finally broke through with a 1-0 victory last July. Like a lot of teams, Portland has experienced significant turnover this offseason, though they still boast one of the top strikers in the world in Sophia Smith. CPKC Stadium will undoubtedly be rocking as the 2024 season gets underway in the battle of two teams that have expectations to be still playing deep into November.

As for the rest of the schedule, with a 26-game regular season slate and a 14-team league, this is about the most balanced a schedule can get. The Current play every other team twice, once at home and once on the road. Thanks to the Summer Olympics, there is a pause in league play between KC’s July 6th match against Orlando and their August 25th tilt versus Washington—the league has suggested there will be an in-season tournament played during this time. There are two dates in which both of Kansas City’s top-flight soccer clubs have home matches: on March 16th the Current host the Thorns at noon and (several hours later) Sporting plays at home to San Jose. The more problematic date would be April 20th when the Current kick off at 6:30 and across the state line Sporting clash with St. Louis at 7:30.

Speaking of that April 20 date, that will be KC fans’ chance to welcome back Alex Loera as the Current’s opponent is Bay FC. And for anyone wishing to give Kate Del Fava and Cece Kizer a round of applause, they can do so on September 7th and June 28th respectively as KC clash with the Utah Royals and the Houston Dash. The penultimate home game of the regular season will find the Current locking horns with the defending champs Gotham FC who now boast what feels like half of the USWNT. Finally, Alex Morgan will be in town with the San Diego Wave to close out the home portion of the regular season on October 19th.

Because of how balanced the schedule is, there are few quirks to point out. Largely because of the Olympic break, there are no regular season home matches for a two-month period between July 6 and September 7. The Current will complete their season series with a few opponents in under/about a month’s time: Angel City (March 30 & April 26), Seattle (May 8 & June 9), and Washington (August 25 & September 20), so there is always the chance that the Current are catching these teams at the “right” or “wrong” times. Additionally, if anything, the front half of the schedule seems a little bit more home-heavy as after July 6 there are only four more home matches through the rest of July, August, September, October, & November. Here’s to hoping that the Current will be playing for the NWSL Shield when they travel to Chicago on November 3rd.
