Fox 4: Sporting KC's first look at new facility shared with Children's Mercy Sports Medicine Center


Sporting KC players and staff got their first look at their brand new $75 million home, which is not only a pinnacle for U.S. Soccer, but it's also one of the best facilities in the world.

"Somehow I'm still shocked at what we have," Sporting KC and U.S. Men's National Team midfielder Graham Zusi said. "It is unbelievable -- the attention to detail, the quality of everything here."

Pinnacle will not only be the home for Sporting KC. It will also house the U.S. Men's National Team as well as the Children's Mercy Sports Medicine Center team.

Jason Yoder with the Sports Medicine Center said patients will be able to rehab with state-of-the-art equipment alongside some of their idols.

"I think the ability to come in and interact with Sporting KC medical staff and then the ability to have the players in the same facility is just -- there's really no way to measure what that means at multiple levels for the patient as well as on the other side for the Sporting players to be that role model and mentor," he said.
