“Telling our local food story to the world, we are thrilled to feature Joe’s Kansas City BBQ at the KC Current stadium,” said Colby and Megan Garrelts, chef-partners for KC Current Stadium and owners of Rye. “Joe’s commitment to excellence will give soccer fans a sample of why Kansas City is the BBQ capital!”

Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que was founded by Jeff & Joy Stehney in 1996. Their original restaurant, located in the gas station at the corner of 47th Avenue and Mission Road, in Kansas City, Kansas, has earned scores of local, regional, and national accolades for its food and service. In 2006, the Stehneys opened a second restaurant at 11950 Strang Line Road, in Olathe, Kansas, and in 2012, a third restaurant was opened at 11723 Roe Avenue, in Leawood, Kansas.

“We are excited to serve Joe’s famous Z-man sandwich to fans of the Current,” said Joe’s VP Ryan Barrows. “The KC Current team and ownership group are a first-class organization, and this is a proud moment for our brand to be included in the opening of this amazing stadium.”

At the in-stadium venue, fans will be able to enjoy the restaurant’s iconic Joe’s Kansas City Z-man sandwich in both chicken and brisket with select side options. The brand will occupy a designated space in a prominent location on the northeast side of the stadium, accessible for all fans throughout KC Current matches.

“With Joe’s joining us at our historic stadium, we are ensuring our goal of staying authentic to Kansas City,” said KC Current President Allison Howard. “This is the first of many unique KC food and beverage options that will be available to all our guests at our stadium that will shape an incredible all-senses experience for our fans on match days.”

As an official partner, Joe's Kansas City will receive use of marks, in-game signage, hospitality, social posts and more.

The club will make more announcements regarding the bespoke food and beverage experience at the stadium in the coming weeks on Teal Tuesdays. Celebrate all things KC Current with the team - and wear your teal - as the story of KC Current Stadium continues to come to life on the riverfront.

KC Current Stadium is the first soccer stadium purpose-built for a professional women’s soccer team. In all aspects of the fan experience, KC Current Stadium will have a focus on inclusivity and sustainability, providing an entertaining and modern atmosphere for fans that develops a passion and loyalty for KC Current and the stadium.
