Fridays Get Funky as KC NWSL Adds FunkAway to Roster

KANSAS CITY (June 30, 2021) – Kansas City NWSL has announced FunkAway, a line of odor eliminating products, as The Official Extreme Odor Eliminator of KC NWSL through the 2022 season. As a part of the partnership, FunkAway will be the presenting partner of ‘Funky Friday’ matches on July 23 against the North Carolina Courage and September 10 against NJ/NY Gotham FC.

“We are thrilled to add FunkAway as a KC NWSL partner,” said Amber Cox, KC NWSL Chief Operating Officer. “Our equipment staff has been believers of FunkAway products for quite some time. This partnership allows us to share our glowing testimonials, as well as product samples and information with our fans, both at Legends Field and when we are in the community.” 

Created by two sports fans, FunkAway owners Dan Zbynski and Kyle Bolke loved to coach and play, but hated the odors that came with it. The pair set out to find a solution that did not just cover up odors, but eliminated them completely. FunkAway eliminates odors using a unique OM Complex™ that attacks odors on a molecular level, encasing and eliminating the source of bad smells.

Already being used to upgrade the locker room presence for Kansas City NWSL, FunkAway will also enhance the fan experience for Season Ticket Members at Legends Field. Each match, four lucky Season Ticket Members will be upgraded to the FunkAway Pitchside Premium Season Ticket Location. In addition to a move to the best seat location at Legends Field, members will receive all-inclusive food and beverage, as well as a FunkAway goodie bag. The FunkAway Upgrade debuts at the first Funky Friday match on Friday, July 23 against the North Carolina Courage.

“When the equipment manager first approached us and said they love FunkAway, we knew we could be on to something great,” said Kyle Bolke. “Partnering with KC NWSL is a perfect fit for us. Not only does this partnership allow us to engage with players and build authenticity for our brand, but it gives us the chance to reach fans who need our product to solve many different odor problems. We couldn’t be more excited to see where this relationship takes us.”

Additionally, on July 23, FunkAway will partner with KC NWSL to honor a local non profit focused on creating opportunities for kids to participate in sports as the Community Champion of the Match. The Community Champion will be recognized on the video board during the match and provided with tickets and autographed memorabilia. 

Finally, fans will have the opportunity to ‘get funky’ at all Kansas City NWSL home matches via the FunkAway ‘Get Funky Cam’. Fans are encouraged to show their best dance moves as they are featured on the Legends Field video board.
