Kansas City’s newest soccer facility is helping further the city’s new soccer-centric image. Compass Minerals National Performance Center (formerly Pinnacle National Development Center) is a joint project between Kansas City’s Sporting FC, US Soccer, and Children’s Mercy Hospital. The campus houses five outdoor fields, Children’s Mercy Sports Medicine Center, and US Soccer’s national coaching and referee training.

Brian Lewis, P.E. showcased the shared use of the facility in Modern Steel Construction:

The steel-framed centerpiece for the campus is the two-story, 81,100-sq.-ft main building, serving all three of its tenants with world-class facilities and top-notch equipment.

U.S. Soccer has access to many of Sporting KC’s premium facilities in addition to their own offices, locker rooms, and classrooms. Pinnacle is also home to the Children’s Mercy Sports Medicine Center’s housing exam rooms and a radiology center. Shared resources include the 12,870-sq.-ft sports medicine gym, four hydrotherapy pools, human analysis/gait lab, and kitchen.
