The Kansas City Wizards will integrate fans in a landmark event before Saturday's home game against the Colorado Rapids.
The team has invited all Wizards season ticket holders to a signing ceremony for the first piece of steel to be erected at the site of the new Wizards stadium.
The event will take place on Saturday from 4-6 p.m. at the stadium plaza site, located at 1600 Village West Parkway in Kansas City, KS.
As part of the ceremony, season ticket holders will be invited to autograph the steel beam, along with local dignitaries and OnGoal principals Neal Patterson, Cliff Illig, Pat Curran, Greg Maday and Robb Heineman. All attendees can then watch the beam being put into place at the stadium construction site.
"Construction on the stadium is moving at a rapid pace, and we're pleased to be this far along this early in the process," Wizards President and OnGoal CEO Robb Heineman said. "Inviting season ticket holders to this event is a great way to get fans connected to our club, our stadium and our vision for soccer in Kansas City."
