41 Files: Will KC's lack of public transit doom World Cup bid?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A preliminary report last week highlighted Kansas City’s strongest – and weakest – attributes as the metro works to host a handful of games in the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

In this week’s 41 Files podcast, the crew talks about one of the most glaring weaknesses: a public transportation system that needs more connections.

 

 

 

Here’s a look at the rest of the show:

Then, at 06:30, 41 Action News Today anchor Taylor Hemness and reporters Steven Dial and Cat Reid talk about a report showing Kansas City has plenty of work to do to land World Cup games in 2026. At the 16:00 mark, Taylor and Cat talk about a recent story involving a “Neighborly Dispute” in Belton. Finally, at 27:30, the crew makes their predictions for Thursday’s Jets vs Browns match.
