Fan Code of Conduct

We are confident KC Current fans top the NWSL in their enthusiasm, team support, hospitality, and sportsmanship. Our reputation is shaped not only by our players, coaches, and employees, but by our fans as well. Our goal is to promote the absolute best Fan Experience in all of sports and entertainment, supporting our team while maintaining a family-oriented atmosphere.

KC Current, Children’s Mercy Park, and the NWSL are committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable match-day experience for all fans visiting stadiums and facilities. KC Current, Children’s Mercy Park, and the NWSL are also deeply committed to fostering an inclusive environment, free of discrimination and harassment. This Fan Code of Conduct addresses conduct that is inconsistent with these goals and detracts from the match-day experience and the expectations of the KC Current, Children’s Mercy Park, and the NWSL.

The following conduct is prohibited in the stadium and all parking lots, facilities and areas controlled by the KC Current, Children’s Mercy Park, or the NWSL and through any KC Current digital platform:

  • Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, threatening, or violent in nature, including verbal or physical harassment of match officials, players, staff, fans or other individuals
  • Conduct that is illegal under applicable local, state, or federal law
  • Conduct that results in damage to the venue or other personal property
  • Displaying signs, symbols, images, using language or making gestures that are threatening, harassing, abusive, or discriminatory, including on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, ability, or sexual orientation
  • Displaying signs, symbols, or images for commercial purposes or for electioneering, campaigning, or advocating for or against any candidate, political party, legislative issue, or government action
  • Entering or attempting to enter the field, the field track, the tunnel, or any other location other than that permitted by the fan’s ticket or credential
  • Possession of an unauthorized pyrotechnic device, smoke or firework or other prohibited item. A list of prohibited items at Children’s Mercy Park may be found here.
  • Throwing objects of any kind, including streamers
  • Failing to follow requests from venue staff regarding stadium operations, policies, and emergency response procedures
  • Declining to promptly return a ball that enters the stands
  • Irresponsible use or consumption of alcohol or other substances
  • Making unauthorized transmissions or play-by-play accounts of the match
  • Any behavior that otherwise targets other fans or interferes with other fans’ enjoyment of the game

Any individual that violates any of these provisions may be subject to penalty as determined by KC Current in its sole and absolute discretion, including, but not limited to, ejection from a game without refund, loss of ticket privileges for future games, revocation of season tickets, refusal of admission to other KC Current events and/or refusal to provide any services offered by KC Current.

Any fan who (1) conducts themselves in an extremely disruptive or dangerous manner (“Level 1 Offenses”), or (2) commits multiple violations of this Code of Conduct during a 12-month period may be banned from attending future matches for up to a year or longer as determined by KC Current in its sole and absolute discretion.

Level 1 Offenses include, but are not limited to, violent behavior, threatening, abusive or discriminatory conduct or language, trespassing or throwing objects onto the field, use or possession of unauthorized pyrotechnics or other dangerous prohibited items, or illegal conduct.

Depending on the nature and severity of the violation, individuals who violate this Fan Code of Conduct may be required to submit a written request for readmission and participate in an online Fan Code of Conduct Education Class (FCEC) in order to be reinstated.

The Code of Conduct applies to all KC Current and NWSL events. Please note that the KC Current and the NWSL reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone who has engaged in harassment of match officials, opposing team members, staff, or other fans or who have otherwise violated this Code of Conduct using social or digital media or other forms of communication.
