Sporting to introduce new foods at Saturday’s home opener in KCK

Sporting KC is introducing new foods to Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas, for its home opener on Saturday.

New food and beverages will be offered at Sporting Park, in addition to favorite fan foods.

Sporting KC will open the season at 7:30 p.m. Saturday against the Houston Dynamo.

BRGR will serve burgers, fries and tots, a chicken sandwich and the Beyond Burger, a plant-based sandwich, in Section 129 at the stadium.

Taco Republic will operate out of its food truck and will serve tacos, chips, salsa, guacamole and margaritas in the South Stand Concourse.

American Royal Barbecue will serve pulled pork, brisket and burnt-end sandwiches, plus burnt-end nachos with molasses baked beans, cheese and onion strings, in Section 127.

Port Fonda will offer a Mexican-style cuisine inside the newly renovated Wise Power Shield Club, including chimichangas, esquite asado and roselle margarita.

Parisi Coffee will have a portable kiosk on the stadium concourse and at premium spaces in the park, with a launch of a new coffee blend line and a special-edition shandy featuring coffee, lemonade and vanilla.

J. Rieger and Co., a distillery in Kansas City, Missouri, will offer whiskey and its products in the suite levels and Wise Power Shield Club. A special collectible bottle of Rieger’s Kansas City Whiskey was launched in February, and a limited edition of Rieger’s Sporting Kansas City Whiskey is celebrating the distillery’s partnership with the soccer club.
