The Kansas City Current (#2 seed)host the North Carolina Courage (#3 seed) in the Challenge Cup semifinal tonight at 7:30 p.m. CT at Children’s Mercy Park. This is the first knockout match for the Current.

Both the Current and the Courage dropped their NWSL regular season openers. North Carolina fell 2-1 to expansion side Angel City FC while Kansas City fell 3-0 at Portland.
