History[edit]

Kansas City Brass is owned by Kansas City United Soccer, Inc., a Kansas Not-for-Profit Corporation, was formed in 1997 by Dr. Emilio John and Alan Blinzler, to serve two missions: to prepare graduating high school seniors for college soccer by introducing them to the level of speed and physical play found at the highest levels of college soccer; and to prepare players for the level of competition found at the First and Second Division levels of professional soccer. Since its beginning John has served as President of the Brass and Blinzler has acted as the Chief Operating Officer.

Since its inception the Brass has assisted over 30 players in their quest to move from the amateur ranks to professional teams. In 2007 the Brass was inducted into the United Soccer Leagues Hall of Fame.
