About Karben Sports

Karben was formed in early 2018 by two family members, Mike and Joe, living in Kansas City who wanted to design and build, educational, outdoor and sporting goods equipment that is not only safe and reliable but also fun and simple to use. Through partners, suppliers and ingenuity, Karben is able to offer multiple colors of the materials necessary to construct our products right here in Kansas City, KS.

From the beginning, the Karben team recognized a need for durable, lightweight sports and educational equipment that could last for years, constructed with quality materials and provide options of colors besides the standard white. Karben launched their initial product offering of soccer goals with the input of former professional MLS players who now use Karben goals in youth club soccer practice. 

Prior to starting Karben, Mike and Joe both worked for two of Kansas City’s largest employers, both Fortune 500 companies. In their combined 30+ years working for these companies, they learned the importance of providing customers with a best-in-service experience and stand behind all products they offer. Karben’s headquarters and production facility are located in Lenexa, KS, a growing suburb of Kansas City, a city Mike and Joe are proud to call home.
