Many locals anticipate the impact of choosing Kansas City to create a buzz in both the soccer world and the economy.

“The atmosphere is gonna be amazing, and it’ll be great to see how much international soccer will grow, hopefully reaching more fans than ever before,” said Junior Eli Stone

Free State soccer player Junior Parker Bentley sees this as an opportunity for international culture within the sport to be displayed in America and influence and grow the sport within the country.

“It will not only be a great expansion and influence for youth and professional soccer programs in the US but it will also be a wonderful chance for Americans to experience world-class talented soccer players,” Bentley said.
