SPORTING EVENTS

Kansas City is often the home of the Big 12 Basketball Tournaments. Men’s Basketball is played at Sprint Center.

Arrowhead Stadium serves as the venue for various intercollegiate football games. Often it was the host of the Fall Classic rivalry game between Northwest Missouri State University and Pittsburg State University takes place here. Usually, the Bearcats of Northwest and Gorillas of Pitt State are ranked one-two in the MIAA conference.

Kansas Speedway, located in Kansas City, Kansas, hosts many auto racing events, including one annual race in all three of NASCAR’s national series (Sprint Cup, Nationwide Series, and Camping World Truck Series), as well as a race in the IndyCar Series.

Kansas City has also hosted the 1973 Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Kauffman Stadium as well as the 2013 MLS All-Star Game at Sporting Park. In 2006, Kansas City was awarded Super Bowl XLIX, but a vote for a rolling roof to be put over Arrowhead Stadium and Kauffman Stadiums was voted down, eliminating that possibility.
