Wizards host New England Saturday, followed by women's professional football game

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Wizards will
take on the unbeaten New England Revolution this Saturday at Arrowhead
Stadium with kickoff at 7:00 p.m. CT. The Wizards will put their current
nine-game home-unbeaten streak (12 games including postseason and U.S. Open
Cup) on the line against the Revs, who are unbeaten in their first ten games
of the 2005 season (6-0-4).

The Wizards welcome back midfielder Kerry Zavagnin and forward Josh
Wolff, who have missed the last four matches while with the U.S. National
Team for a pair of World Cup Qualifiers. The duo will rejoin a Wizards squad
that currently ranks second in the League in scoring with 20 goals in 11
games. Just five points behind the first place Revs in the standings, Kansas
City will look to climb within one game of the top of the Eastern Conference
this weekend.

Following this Saturday's match, Arrowhead Stadium will play host to the
first ever Women's Professional Football game at Arrowhead when the
Independent Women's Football League's Kansas City Storm and Detroit
Predators face off in their regular season game. The Women's football game
will kickoff after the Wizards match and following some brief field
preparation.

Admission to the Kansas City Storm game is free with a ticket to the
Wizards match. Tickets to the Wizards and Kansas City Storm doubleheader are
