The National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) announced the official list of allocated players for the 2015 season. There will be 42 allocated National Team players, meaning their salaries are subsidized by their respective National Team federations. Of those allocated players there are 25 Americans, 13 Canadians and four Mexicans.

FC Kansas City's allocated players are:

  • Nicole Barnhart (USA)
  • Lauren Holiday (USA)
  • Heather O'Reilly (USA)
  • Becky Sauerbrunn (USA)
  • Amy (Rodriguez) Schilling (USA)

The only change for the Blues is the addition of O'Reilly. FC Kansas City traded for her from Boston in the off season.

The National Team players are scheduled to begin the season with their respective National Teams, but are expected to play in the first three to four NWSL matches prior to the start of the FIFA Women's World Cup 2015. The NWSL will take a brief 12-day break during the group stages of the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015.

Former FC Kansas City players Renae Cuellar and Teresa Noyola were dropped from the group of Mexican allocated players.
