TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! MUST READ!!! TESTIMONY: MAYOR PRO TEM CINDY CIRCO SOCCER GAMES FAIL KANSAS CITY FAMILIES!!!
Right now we have a bit of insight on a KANSAS CITY SOCCER FIGHT that's much more interesting than the game of wasted kick . . .
Here's a primer and a sketch of what's happening in this story . . .
Sporting KC, Brookside Soccer League debate increased soccer fees for children's leagues
"Earlier this year, Brookside Soccer League told parents they would have to pay $12 extra to play on the new fields, according to multiple sources. Now, participants in the league may have to pay an additional $8 as part of their league fee, according to a source, after already paying the original fee for this season. The three parties are at an impasse and no deal has been brokered."
Now . . .
EVEN BETTER . . . WE'VE GOT INSIDER KANSAS CITY TESTIMONY THAT CALLS OUT MAYOR PRO TEM CINDY CIRCO AND HER ROLE IN THIS TRAGIC BIT OF SOCCER PANDERING!!!
Here's the word . . . Check it:
"The situation down there is going to get ugly very soon. To the point where the Mayor’s office has said to stop telling people what is/isn’t going on . . .
"The short is Sporting was given full control of the complex, the construction Grand Construction who happens to be a subsidiary of Sporting/Ongoal/Soccer Village Properties), the management etc. As can be seen in their contract.
"The mayor of course as well as Parks and Rec all stated that Brookside Soccer would be the primary tenant with a discounted rate (which continues to go up with no contract signed and the leagues start in 4 weeks).
"A letter is supposed to go out to parents to inform them of this and encourage them to contact the Mayor’s office next week (some have already learned this information and have already contacted hence the original statement).
"Parks has signed a contract with Sporting/Heartland. Yes, Heartland Soccer Association will be the managing entity and bringing in their games, clinics, etc from JOCO and as far as I believe they have been told the rates will be somewhere around $125/Hour. But yes, Circo insisted it was for the under-served youth."
Long story short here is that this IS YET ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT that Kansas City has managed to screw up despite big promises of neighborhood development.
