The Kingdom folded their franchise at the end of the 2006 season to re-focus their efforts on youth soccer in the Kalamazoo area, specifically supporting their teams for the Super Y-League, as well as their own indoor soccer league.

They played their home games at Mayor's Riverfront Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The team's colors were red, white and black.
