Global Spectrum To Operate KC Stadium

Major League Soccer’s Kansas City Wizards have hired Global Spectrum to handle management and operations for the team’s under-construction, 18,000-seat stadium in Kansas scheduled to open in summer 2011.

Global Spectrum will handle day-to-day duties and booking for the $165 million venue, which features 33 luxury suites, two premium clubs and a 60,000-square-foot entertainment plaza.

The venue is part of a $400 million development that will include an outdoor event center, more than 18 tournament-quality fields and an office complex.
