Kansas City Current set opening day roster ahead of historic 2024 season

The Kansas City Current have set the club’s roster for the opening of the historic 2024 season. The Current will open the campaign with 24 active players, including nine players who are new to Kansas City in 2024.  

As Kansas City opens the world’s first stadium purpose-built for professional women’s sports, the club will do so with four players who were originally allocated to the club in 2021 (Elizabeth Ball, Lo’eau LaBonta, Desiree Scott, Mallory Weber) and three more who joined the team later in that inaugural year (Hailie Mace, AD Franch, Kristen Hamilton).  

Four players will mark their first professional seasons this year, including offseason signings Claire Hutton, Alex Pfeiffer and 2024 NWSL Draft selections Ellie Wheeler and Hope Hisey. Four more players (Regan Steigleder, Temwa Chawinga, Bia Zaneratto, Sophie Braun) will make their NWSL debuts. Rounding out the new faces for Current fans are two players with extensive NWSL experience who have made the move to Kansas City, Nichelle Prince and Bayley Feist.  

Desiree Scott, Hanna Glas and Mallory Weber, who finished last season on the Season Ending Injury (SEI) list, will maintain that status to begin the 2024 season and do not count towards the maximum roster limit. Vanessa DiBernardo, also remains on the SEI list from her injury in 2023, however the club expects her to be cleared and ready to play shortly.
