Children’s Mercy Park located in Kansas City KS is home to Sporting KC.  This stadiums ranks #2 on my MLS stadium ranks because of fan experience and technology.  This park, often called America’s most technologically advanced soccer stadium in the United States.  It is also nicknamed Blue Hell because the Supporters there show up every game and create a nightmare for the opponents.  It’s capacity sits at 18,467 is the near the bottom in the MLS.  Children’s Mercy Park has many advanced features such as wifi and a high tech scoreboard.  They also have a roof that covers the seats just right that rain can come in to the field but the fans don’t get wet.
