The KC Current's new stadium officially has a name: CPKC Stadium.

Cofounder and co-owner Angie Long announced the partnership with Canadian Pacific Kansas City in a press conference this morning in front of the new stadium on Kansas City's riverfront.

With the Current set to play matches at CPKC Stadium next season, this partnership represents the next step towards a revolutionary movement in Kansas City sports and beyond.

KC Current Announces Stadium Name

CPKC Stadium is the first stadium in the world built for the sole purpose of housing a professional women's soccer team, though the location will also be used for concerts and variety of other entertainment endeavors.

Several other buildings and projects are underway in the area with a goal of creating a "CPKC Plaza" of sorts with entertainment destinations and activities.

The Current have announced multiple partnerships with the new stadium of late, most notably bringing the famous "Z-Man" sandwich from Joe's Kansas City BBQ to concession stands.

Given the new airport and street car expansion in Kansas City, CPKC Stadium represents a new era of growth in the city.

The KC Current finished in 11th place this season after a trip to the title game last year, but the organization is thrilled for what's to come with a new home due to open next year. There's still much work to be done, but now we've got a name to go with the beautiful location.
