Fox Sports Kansas City is an American regional sports network serving the Kansas City region and surrounding areas in parts of Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa that is operated as an affiliate of Fox Sports Networks. The channel is owned by Fox Cable Networks, a unit of the Fox Entertainment Group division of 21st Century Fox.

Originally operating as a subfeed of Fox Sports Midwest, it was spun off as a separate channel in 2008 as a result of a new long-term exclusive broadcast agreement with Major League Baseball's Kansas City Royals. [1] Fox Sports Kansas City was created to avoid conflicts with St. Louis Cardinals coverage, which remains on St. Louis-based Fox Sports Midwest. Fox Sports Kansas City also produces the Royals Live pre-game and post-game shows and Royals Insider. During the college football season, Fox Sports Kansas City airs Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas State Wildcats games at different times to ensure that there are no broadcast conflicts. Missouri Tigers football games are available only from an alternate feed of Fox Sports Kansas City.
