Sporting Kansas City and NFL FLAG announce partnership at Central Bank Sporting Complex

Sporting Kansas City and MO-KAN NFL FLAG, the official youth football program of the NFL, have formed a partnership that will bring NFL Flag Youth Leagues year-round to Central Bank Sporting Complex in Platte County, Missouri beginning this September.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with MO-KAN NFL FLAG and we can’t wait to host their boys and girls flag football leagues at the new complex next month,” said Dan Popik, Sporting KC Vice President of Youth Business Development. “This will be a special season for MO-KAN NFL FLAG as they’re introducing their first ever “all-girls” league in Kansas City this fall at Central Bank Sporting Complex.”

Central Bank Sporting Complex will soft launch to the public in early September. Upon completion, the facility will feature 10 world-class, multi-sport turf fields that can be converted into eight fields for baseball and softball play. All fields will be lighted with convenient parking and on-site amenities, including playgrounds, fieldhouse, restrooms and concessions.

“We are extremely excited to bring NFL FLAG Football to Sporting Kansas City’s new facility, Central Bank Sporting Complex. Just minutes from Zona Rosa, this premier facility will be the home of MO-KAN NFL FLAG in Platte County for years to come,” said Frank Cammisano, Director of MO-KAN NFL Flag. “Our goal is to provide the youth of Kansas City the platform to make lifelong memories and learn life lessons through the game of football.”

NFL FLAG is non-contact, giving Kindergarten through 8th grade boys and girls of all abilities a chance to develop their fundamental football skills in a safe, positive and inclusive environment. This program is a pathway for female athletes to play in college, and an outlet for tackle athletes to compete in the offseason. As NFL FLAG grows, one thing remains the same: it’s a place for every child to play football.

The upcoming fall season consists of a 7-week, 6-game season including playoffs and a Super Bowl for the top teams in each division. All players receive a premier NFL FLAG game day experience and officially licensed NFL team gear. MO-KAN NFL FLAG will host practices and games on Saturday afternoons, allowing the program to work well with other sports and busy schedules.
