KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two Kansas City-area sports teams on opposite sides of the metro made announcements about their future Tuesday.

The Kansas City Comets, of the Major Arena Soccer League, announced a three-year agreement to play at Silverstein Eye Center Arena in Independence, Missouri.

Since a revival in 2010, the Comets have played their home games in Independence. They’ll kick off the 10th season in Independence on Nov. 30 against the St. Louis Ambush.

“We are thrilled to announce Silverstein Eye Centers Arena through 2022,” Comets managing partner Brian Budzinski said in a release. “We couldn’t be more excited for our fans to see all the upgrades.”

Earlier Tuesday, a new ownership group announced plans to buy the Kansas City T-Bones, keeping the team at Village West Stadium in Kansas City, Kansas. The deal still requires final approval.
