For the next 4 days, starting tomorrow January 28th, the 2008 Kansas City Wizards will be practicing at the KC Sports Lodge. This will be the first gathering of the team since Garcia, Burciaga and Johnson have left and since the new draft picks have were chosen. At least three players will be missing though – Jimmy Conrad is off the USMNT camp, #1 pick Chance Myers is off to Olympic/U-23 camp and Will John is supposed to be in Denmark on a trial. The team is expected to leave for Florida either after practice Thursday or on Friday the 1st.
Great news though, the practice is Open To The Public. This per the Season Ticket holder email and Hillcrest Road. Practice will be from 10 AM to 11:30 AM. The KC Sports Lodge is an indoor facility located at 19310 E. 50th, Independence MO 64055.
I will most likely be there at the practice. I’ll see about getting some pictures of the new recruits practicing. Who knows, maybe Mr. Trujillo will be there practicing too (much like Marinelli from last year).
