The Royals are officially moving Kauffman Stadium to downtown Kansas City! It's going to be located in the Crossroads District. I've always thought it's so cool when a stadium is downtown. And the one thing that's so awful about Arrowhead and Kauffman is the location and how there's nothing in walking distance to do before or after the game.

The future stadium would incorporate the land of the former Kansas City Star building at 16th and McGee Street.

The new ballpark will seat about 34,000 fans, or roughly 3,000 fewer than Kauffman Stadium, and the Royals are hopeful it would be ready for the 2028 season. The final design is still under development, but renderings shown Tuesday paid homage to the K’s swooping roof lines and iconic centerfield fountains.
