Sporting KC has faced some formidable opponents but none as wild as our animals! Join us for Sporting KC Day at the Zoo on Sunday, June 11. See Benny Feilhaber and Ike Opara take on the Zoo’s dynamic defender, Delilah, the sea lion. Watch them play a little one-on-one during the Sea Lion Splash at 1:30 pm. Feilhaber and Opara will sign autographs for our guests from 1 to 1:30 p.m. behind the sea lion pool.
Kevin Ellis and Soni Mustivar will paint alongside our orangutan Picassos. Who will be the best artist? Find out at Orangutan Canopy at 2:15 pm. Ellis and Mustivar will also sign autographs at Orangutan Canopy from 2:45 to 3:15 pm.
See if you have what it takes to play for Sporting KC. Try out your skills on the Sporting KC Futsal Court located behind the sea lion pool from 9 am to 1 pm. From 11:30 to noon an interactive clinic will be led by Swope Park Rangers coach Gavin McInerney on the Futsal court. This opportunity is first come first serve.
Our animals are getting in the Sporting KC spirit as well! Animals in Tropics, Helzberg Penguin Plaza and Discovery Barn will be enjoying special enrichment items like t-shirts, cups and more donated to them by Sporting KC. Our orangutans are “suiting up” in Sporting KC attire. Berlin is showing her team spirit with one of her favorite enrichment items during the 11 a.m. Zookeeper chat.
