“It’s no secret Kansas City loves soccer,” Kathleen Choal, regional vice president for The E.W. Scripps Company and general manager of KSHB and KMCI, said Tuesday in announcing the expanded partnership. “And with the excitement surrounding the new CPKC Stadium, this is an incredible opportunity for our audience, city and region.”

The expanded match lineup is already underway thanks to a new partnership with Scripps Sports — a division of Scripps and the parent company of KSHB and KMCI. 38 the Spot will air the simulcast of Current matches that are scheduled to air nationwide on ION.

“2024 is the first season of a new multi-year agreement between the NWSL and Scripps Sports," Brian Lawlor, Scripps Sports president, said Tuesday. “We are thrilled to provide more visibility to the amazing athletes within the NWSL. That includes in Kansas City, where we are proud that KSHB and KMCI will make available 15 KC Current games to every local household through cable, satellite or over-the-air.”
