Kansas City Wizards Tips (4)

KC Wizards now Sporting KC

Major League Soccer (MLS) is a first division professional soccer league in the United States. Sporting KC formerly known as The KC Wizards and KC Wiz (respectively) since 1996, but didn't garner city wide interest until 2000 when the team had an outstanding year and became MLS champions. It's sort of the equivalent of winning the superbowl of soccer.

Sporting KC, one of the first ten original teams to have been created, is founded by Lamar Hunt who is also the founder of the Kansas City Chiefs and owner of the Columbus Crew (eastern conference).

The team is part of the Western conference which includeds San Jose, Los Angeles, Colorado and Dallas. The Eastern conference houses the Chicago Fire, Columbus Crew, D. C. United, New England Revolution, and the New York/New Jersey MetroStars

Unlike many other professional sports leagues in the United States, MLS is organized as a "single-entity" organization, in which the league contracts directly with the players, in an effort to control spending and maximize exposure. Each team has an owner/investor and the league allows an owner to have more than one team.

Interesting to note that Kansas City Wizards midfielder Chris Klein was selected to be part of the 23-man U.S. Soccer Team. begins preparation for the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup in France.

Sporting Park is a soccer-specific stadium in Kansas City, Kansas, US, and is the home of Sporting Kansas City. The stadium was renamed in January 2013 after the Livestrong Foundation and Sporting Kansas City ended their agreement. The stadium opened during the 2011 season of Major League Soccer on June 9, 2011 with a match against the Chicago Fire. The stadium has a seating capacity of 18,467 seats, which can expand to 25,000 for concerts. The stadium is Sporting Kansas City's third home venue; then known as the Kansas City Wizards, the team played in Arrowhead Stadium from 1996 to 2007 and CommunityAmerica Ballpark from 2008 to 2010. In 2013, the stadium hosted the MLS All-Star Game, the United States men's national soccer team, and the MLS Cup, three of the most prestigious matches in the United States, and is the only stadium to host all three in the same year.

soccer rocks!

It was very cold for April. Only 44 degrees! And at the end of the night it began to snow! But no matter how cold it was, it was definitely worth it. I with they had more publicity for the team because they are all very down to earth guys who play a great game. Can't wait to see them again.
Make sure that you check the forecast before heading there. It may be 80 degrees or 40. Ya never know until you check!

Football (Soccer), American Style

Kansas City is home to the Wizards of Major League Soccer. Games are played at Arrowhead Stadium (east of KC on Interstate 70) from April through September. See Wizards stars such as Preki, Tony Meola, Chris Klein, Josh Wolf, Nick Garcia, Diego Gutierrez, Kerry Zavagnin, and more.

If you've never seen the world's favorite sport, you've got to give it a try. If you're a life-long fan visiting from another country, you should see how well the American game and American players are developing.

Unfortunate negative: Arrowhead Stadium is designed for American Football - not futbol, and can seat almost 80,000 spectators. It's not a great venue for the game, but it's all we've got at present.
