A combination of funds from the Unified Government of Wyandotte County (via transient guest tax), the State of Kansas (via STAR Bonds) and private investment will pay for the new American Royal complex.

Currently all revenue generated by the American Royal stays in Missouri. Further, the land proposed for the new complex is park land that doesn’t generate tax revenue. Utilizing STAR Bonds to finance part of the project will generate new tax revenue for Kansas that will be used to pay off the bonds over a period of time and will then be revenue for the state general fund.

The core American Royal complex is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. Events will begin taking place in 2022.

The entire site is made up of approximately 550 acres of real property generally located at the southwest and
northeast corners of the intersection of North 110th Street and Parallel Parkway in Wyandotte County,
Kansas. The American Royal complex is approximately 110 acres within the site.
