KC Stockyards Classic Soccer Tournament

KANSAS CITY, KS — Once upon a time, the livestock came to Kansas City.

They came rolling down off the High Plains to the west into the Missouri River bottom where the stockyards were located, as though moved by force of gravity. They came from the north and the south, from Missouri as well. The Kansas City Stockyards were a sight to see, a sound to hear, an odor to smell, pens and buildings sprawling about as far as the eye could see in the West Bottoms, below the ever-growing cluster of skyscrapers on the overlooking hills. The Livestock Exchange Building, built in 1910, is still prominent as one drives into the area, even though the stockyards closed 22 years ago.

In 2020, 29 years after the stockyards were officially closed, we will host our 3rd Annual KC STOCKYARDS CLASSIC soccer tournament. This end of season event will be at Wyandotte Sporting Fields.

The KC STOCKYARDS CLASSIC is a perfect way to finish up the spring season and measure how well your team has advanced and developed over the season! The Wynadotte Sporting Fields features 8 state of the art tuft fields all in one location.

regarding tournament hotel reservations

  • A condition of acceptance requires every “out of town” team to utilize one of the sanctioned hotels and book the rooms through Global Connections Inc. (GCI) using their online request system at www.GCITeamTravel.com. Global Connections has worked closely with the local hotels and has secured the best rates possible for this event. Outstanding properties will be available at affordable prices. Various options will also be available to satisfy team needs and all budgetary considerations.
  • A team failing to utilize Global Connections will not be permitted to participate in the tournament.
