Major League Soccer franchise Sporting Kansas City has decreased the price of a variety of food and beverage items at its Children’s Mercy Park stadium for the 2017 season.

In conjunction with the club’s food and beverage operating partner, Legends Hospitality, the cost of bottled water, carbonated drinks and beer has been lowered by an average of 20 per cent since 2016.

Other items subject to the price decrease include margaritas, double cocktails and menu items such as hot dogs, bratwursts, chips and grilled cheese sandwiches.

In addition to the price changes at Children’s Mercy Park, a new Chicken-N-Taters restaurant stand has replaced Guy’s Bar-B-Que Joint at the concourse concession in the northeast corner of the venue.
