As the Kansas City Monarchs prepare to start their season, which begins on Tuesday, May 18th, they announced some big news regarding having fans at Legends Field: they intend on having full capacity crowds.
Monarchs owner Mark Brandmeyer, recently told 41 Action News that the stadium will welcome fans at full capacity and face masks will not be required, citing loosened COVID-19 restrictions made by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County. Restrictions have been lifted all across the country, and especially in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
“You kind of almost feed off the crowds energy and noise, especially as a pitcher,” Monarchs pitcher Eric Stout said. “I’m a big adrenaline guy, so I’ll be pitching today and then I’m starting opening night so it’s going to be awesome just to hear the crowd and see the crowd and it’s something I like to build off of.”
Legends Field is home to the Kansas City Monarchs and the Kansas City NWSL. Both teams are well attended and notable in the metro area, and it looks as if everything is full speed ahead for their upcoming seasons.
