Kansas City Current Announces Bank of America as Official Community Partner

The Kansas City Current is proud to welcome Bank of America to the team as the club’s Official Community Partner. In addition to receiving official partner status along with the use of marks, in-game signage, hospitality, social posts and more, Bank of America will also be the presenting partner of several soccer clinics, STEM programming and other community projects.

“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Bank of America,” said Kansas City Current co-owner Chris Long. “This partnership is a natural fit. Both the KC Current and Bank of America share a mission to lead our respective industries when it comes to innovation and achievement. Even more importantly, we share a commitment to giving back to the community and taking action to support local leaders and organizations. We look forward to many successful projects with Bank of America.”

“We’re extremely excited about being named as the Official Community Partner of the Kansas City Current,” said Matt Linski, President, Bank of America Kansas City. “Our values align, and we share a commitment and dedication to community. Like the KC Current, we believe it’s important to provide access to soccer for young people who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn the sport. Our common focus on innovation will guide us as we roll out this multi-year partnership.”

Central to Bank of America’s new role as the Official Community Partner of the Kansas City Current are the organization’s four core values: deliver together, act responsibly, realize the power of its people and trust the team. The Kansas City Current shares these ideals through focusing on the club’s three community pillars: Inspiring Bold Ambition, The Power of Sport for All and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

A major component of the partnership will renovate a STEM Lab at East High School, a Title I school and the biggest high school in Kansas City, just four miles from the new KC Current Stadium. More than 40 languages are spoken at East, representing students from 42 countries and making it one of the most diverse schools in the metro area. The STEM Lab Project will provide laptops and equipment storage, in addition to other renovations.

The Current will hold multiple free community soccer clinics, presented by Bank of America, aimed at providing access to youth and adults in places where opportunities to learn the sport are rare. More information on these projects will be announced at a later date.
