KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Current have announced another local restaurant that will open in their new riverfront stadium.
Local Pig, a Kansas City butcher shop, will set up in CPKC Stadium next year when it opens for the NWSL season.
“We are incredibly excited to be a part of the culinary hospitality at CPKC Stadium,” Local Pig owner Alex Pope said in a release. “We’re looking forward to sharing our signature dishes like our custom sausage links with all the fans at each home game.”
Local Pig started in a small shop in the East Bottoms in 2012 until it expanded to the City Market due to rising popularity. It’s even been featured on The Food Network’s popular “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
Next year, Local Pig will open a location in the northeast corner of CPKC Stadium. They’ll offer four staple sausage links on a rotating basis — BBQ Brat, Jalapeno Cheddar, Beer Brat and All Beef hot dogs — along with other options.
“They are a KC favorite that capitalizes on their connection to the community they serve by treating fans with their unique fare,” said Megan and Colby Garrelts, chef-partners for CPKC Stadium and owners of Rye. “We couldn’t be more excited to have them as a part of the culinary team!”
The Kansas City Current have gradually been announcing restaurant partners for their new stadium each week.
More restaurant announcements are expected in the coming weeks.
