Partnership with Sporting KC
Talk about teaming up with a winner: Rodrock Development and the Darol Rodrock Foundation has partnered with Sporting Kansas City in an exciting three-year collaboration that perfectly aligns two family-focused, award-winning enterprises.
Sporting KC is known worldwide for thrilling matches and endless entertainment for soccer fans. Now, Rodrock Development is honored to share in some of this adventure, all while raising awareness for the Darol Rodrock Foundation and providing much-needed support to area foster-care children.
Among the fantastic opportunities the partnership provides is the chance for Rodrock Development to host a one-day event at the Stadium each year. Sporting KC has kindly allowed up to 500 guests some four hours at the Stadium with access to the pitch, locker rooms, and a chance for group photos.
But the fun doesn’t stop there: During a Title Night Game, hosted in conjunction with the Darol Rodrock Foundation, Darol himself took to the field at halftime to speak about the needs of area foster-care children. All game attendees were encouraged to bring donations aiding area foster-care children.
During a “Day in the Life with Sporting KC,” guests got the chance to visit the Club’s Official Training Facility, Swope Soccer Village, for a three-hour event, on-field access, behind-the-scenes tour of locker room, weight room, and training areas, plus group photos with Club players, autograph signings, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run drills and assist with on-field activities.
Throughout the season, there will be many more opportunities; player appearances and autograph sessions, an interactive skills/drills session, a Club Scrimmage, and a VIP Practice Experience (complete with customized club replica apparel, an autograph and photo session, skills/drills session, and VIP tour).
This partnership is a natural extension of what these organizations deeply value—the immense opportunity to help those in need of families themselves.
