American Royal Rodeo moving to Sprint Center from Kemper Arena

Kemper Arena is one step closer to being a forgotten relic. News broke this morning that the American Royal Rodeo is leaving Kemper for the Sprint Center, according to KMBC ace reporter Mike Mahoney’s blog. This is a huge blow for the West Bottoms.

“The change in venue from Kemper Arena is intended to bring new

excitement and greater attendance to this historic event,” David Fowler, the chairman of the Royal’s board of directors, said in a news


“A principal

reason for moving the event to Sprint Center is the opportunity to

partner with AEG in bringing top-tier concert entertainment to close out

each evening Rodeo performance.”
