JE Dunn and Monarch Build Make History with $120M CPKC Stadium: World’s First Stadium for a Women’s Pro Sports Team

It’s a groundbreaking chapter in sports history as JE Dunn and Monarch Build join forces to oversee the construction of the revolutionary CPKC Stadium. This game-changing $120 million project – the first stadium in the world purpose-built for a women’s professional sports team – is poised to reshape the global landscape of women’s sports.

Constructed for the Kansas City Current, a National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) team since 2021, CPKC Stadium embodies Kansas City’s sporting spirit. With a seating capacity of 11,500, it heralds a new era for women’s sports, creating waves of excitement globally. JE Dunn’s integral role in this historic endeavor not only reinforces its commitment to excellence but also positions the project as a model for future global ventures.

Transforming urban planning and community development, it’s the latest example that demonstrates Kansas City is a hub for forward-thinking initiatives. Nestled on 7.1 acres along the Missouri River, it serves as the focal point of Berkley Riverfront Park – a key element of Port KC’s innovative riverfront development project. This solidifies its pivotal role in shaping the future landscape of the city.

The stadium will have pitch-side seats, a club, luxurious suites, a supporter section with safe standing rails, community plaza areas and a high-tech pitch with heating and cooling. It’s a soccer paradise where every detail showcases a commitment to fans and athletes alike.

More than just breaking ground, the CPKC Stadium is shattering barriers and emerging as a powerful symbol of progress, empowerment and inclusivity. Consider this development your VIP pass to witnessing history in the making.

JE Dunn and Monarch Build have been incredible partners for the Kansas City Current,” said Angie and Chris Long, KC Current owners. “The team managing this project has poured their heart and soul into building CPKC Stadium and we are so appreciative.  From the beginning, every single person involved with construction of this state-of-the-art facility has understood the gravity of this investment and how this stadium sets the standard for all of women’s sports globally.”
