Wizards, US soccer to collect gear May 22

The Kansas City Wizards and United States Soccer Foundation are teaming up once again to present the U.S. Soccer Foundation "Passback Program". On Saturday, May 22, prior to the Wizards match against the Dallas Burn, the U.S. Soccer Foundation will be collecting new and gently used soccer gear as part of their annual Passback Program. Soccer clubs, teams and individuals are encouraged to donate new or old soccer gear that will, in turn, be donated to local charities. Collections will take place outside Gate C of Arrowhead Stadium up until kickoff at 7:30 p.m.

As an added incentive, U.S. Soccer Foundation and the Wizards will award the club, team or individual who donates the most equipment at the May 22nd game with a set of snap-together soccer goals, compliments of Kwikgoal. The club, team or individual who donates the second most equipment will receive a $200 gift certificate from Eurosport. For more information, call 816-920-9300.
