About Sunflower State FC ( - Born out of a love for the game our founding members began playing in Kansas City adult leagues as Queso Blanco. Over our first two years competing in the most competitive amateur adult leagues and tournaments in the area we found substantial success, winning 10 first and second place trophies. Through these years interest in our team began to grow and our passion for the game fueled the desire to continue to play at a high level and provide additional playing opportunities for players that may not have them otherwise. This lead to the development and transition to Sunflower State FC and beginning semi-pro competition in the MASL 3 and UPSL in 2020-2021. Our passion and excitement for the game persists and we are excited to bring opportunity to players and make an impact through soccer in our community.
