City Foods & Events: Sporting KC’s Private Events Team Deliver Culinary Excellence

Sporting Kansas City has a “winning mentality” on the soccer field, and they bring that same excellence to an in-house hospitality and catering company, City Foods & Events.

Their private events team creates personalized experiences for every client by collaborating with their own culinary and food and beverage specialists. Complementing the amazing cuisine, is their full-service event planning team that creates one-of-a-kind parties, events, fundraisers or any type of gathering.

The team at City Foods & Events is built on the power of gathering and specializes in customized and elevated experiences for you and your guests at any one of the on-premise venues or any off-site space across Kansas City.

The unique and unexpected settings of Children’s Mercy Park and Compass Minerals National Performance Center allow you to choose from intimate cocktail spaces with electrifying views of the pitch to large outdoor spaces for fun-filled corporate field days. There are several distinct and stunning event spaces that can be combined and configured to host up to 18,000 guests.

Originality sets this team apart from traditional event planners. They have the resources to transform ideas in a unique way. Whether it’s a seated, plated fundraiser on the concourse overlooking the stadium, themed menus, or wedding ceremonies broadcasted on the video boards, you can realize event concepts in a completely new way. 

The City Foods & Events team also taps into their talent off the field, offering their ability to manage large-scale events from anywhere in the metropolitan area. They take pride in delivering innovation in addition to their catering, so you’re not only getting culinary expertise, but a team of creative thinkers that bring event concepts to light.

Director of Private Events, Alesia Lawson, says “We believe in offering gatherings that strengthen our city’s businesses and organizations. The excellence seen in our events reflect our excellent community”. With best-in-class production capabilities and unrivaled culinary experiences, City Foods & Events has everything you need to make your next private event a memory-making experience from the first sip to the last bite.
