The Kansas City Current made their intentions known this offseason, they did not appreciate losing last season’s NWSL final.

Looking back at last offseason for Kansas City, it couldn’t be a more different world than the one KC sees themselves in now.

Last year they were entering a season with a fresh new brand after being the worst team in the league, but with a first year coach, along with a fun mix of veterans and new faces, the Current made the NWSL final while looking like a team that belonged in the upper echelon of the league.

General Manager Camille Levin took the loss personally and decided to approach every high profile free agent this offseason. From being the last team out on young Haitian phenom, Melchie Dumornay, to securing the biggest prize of free agency in Debinha. Levin supported and reinforced the roster through aggressive maneuvering.

NWSL Free Agency

Kansas City won free agency with the Debinha signing alone, but re-signing captain Desi Scott, along with NWSL veterans Morgan Gautrat and Vanessa Dibernado further strengthens their midfield depth with hardworking ball winners that are surely looking for a fresh opportunity after their stints in Chicago.
