Artist rendering of Kansas City Ballpark District stadium

Our New Home

In the fall of 2021, we announced that we were undertaking a diligent, deliberate, and transparent process to explore the possibility of a new ballpark district. We said we would look at various locations across the city that will allow for residential, commercial, and community components. We are excited to now share that we have two leading locations under close consideration, one in downtown Kansas City, and the other located in North Kansas City.

While each site offers unique opportunities, our vision is to best serve ALL of our residents and build on the momentum our city is experiencing. To accomplish this move, our plans will be contingent on continuing our public-private partnership and investment with multiple local jurisdictions and the State of Missouri.

“This is the most important thing we will have the opportunity to do while we have the privilege of being stewards of this franchise,” said John Sherman, Chairman and CEO of the Kansas City Royals.

The District

A New Home for Royals Fans Far and Wide

Our vision is to not just build a facility that does justice to the spirit of The K. We want to construct a world-class experience – a new ballpark district and all that comes with it – one that is woven into the fabric of our city, can host events and concerts, and boosts our local economy.

“Unbelievably High QualitY”

MLB Commissioner Tours Potential Sites

On August 16th, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred threw his support behind a new stadium for the Royals calling both potential sites near downtown Kansas City “unbelievably high quality” for the type of revenue-producing, multi-use districts that are necessary for small-market clubs to compete.
