Sporting Kansas City seal Daktronics deal
Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise Sporting Kansas City have announced a partnership with electronics company Daktronics.

As part of the deal, Daktronics has installed 835 linear feet of new LED field boards and added a dynamic digital display in the southeast corner of the top-flight soccer team's Children’s Mercy Park. 

In addition, a new digital display has been placed by the tunnel in the southeast corner of the team's 18,000-seater venue, while the pitch is now surrounded on the north, east and south sides by 2.5-feet-high LED field boards.

“We’re excited to welcome Daktronics as one of the club’s newest partners and we’re thrilled to showcase our partnership at Children’s Mercy Park,” said Jon Moses, Sporting KC’s Senior Director of Corporate Partnership Sales. “Our stadium continues to be one of the most technologically-advanced venues in Major League Soccer and Daktronics will now help us deliver an even more engaging experience for our fans.”

“Our pitch perimeter displays are engineered to provide a visual experience that is second to none,” added Daktronics Regional Manager Tony Mulder. “The brightness punches through directly sunlight to engage viewers, and we’re looking forward to this installation having an impact on matches at Children’s Mercy Park for years to come.”

Sporting Kansas City are sixth in MLS's Western Conference after winning two and drawing one of their opening four games.
