The Current opened the 2024 season on Saturday in their brand new CPKC Stadium, a historic soccer field with a capacity of 11,500 fans that is the first stadium built specifically to host women’s professional sports in the United States. Kansas City came out firing, grabbing a 5–2 lead over the Portland Thorns and hanging on for a 5–4 victory to earn three points in the standings.

The Mahomes family, watching from a suite, were loving every minute of it.

It’s been remarkable to be in this stadium and see the fans. I feel like I’m at Arrowhead,” Patrick Mahomes said before the game, via ESPN. “That’s the type of vibe I’m having here.” Brittany Mahomes, who played collegiate soccer at the University of Texas at Tyler, bought a stake in the franchise along with Angie and Chris Long in December 2020.

Patrick Mahomes joined the ownership group himself in 2023. “I’ve seen the talent that they showcase every single game,” Patrick Mahomes told ESPN. “We wanted to build a stadium to match that talent. To have it here in Kansas City as the first women’s-specific, women’s only stadium, I think it’s the start of something that will take off throughout the rest of the world.

Bia Zaneratto, Vanessa DiBernardo, Ellie Wheeler, Kristen Hamilton and Alexandra Pfeiffer also scored goals for Kansas City. Pfeiffer became the youngest goal scorer in NWSL history at 16 years and four months old. The Current return to the pitch March 23 to battle the San Diego Wave at Snapdragon Stadium.
