Wizards Playing Atlas

The Wizards partnership with Mexican club Atlas, looks like it will finally yield a friendly between the two sides. Thanks to a poster on bigsoccer, we have this up on ticketmaster advertising a game at Community America Ballpark between Atlas and the Wizards.

The timing of this game is just a little bit odd though. The game is advertised as kicking off on July 11th at 7 pm. This is one day after the Wizards play New York at home, and the same day as the reserves play New York at Swope Park. Talk about a full schedule. Still I'm pleased that this looks like it's happening, I've been calling for a home friendly for years and have wanted something to come from this Atlas partnership, so it's the best of both worlds.

UPDATE: According to another poster on bigsoccer, the Wizards front office has told him that the reserve game on the 11th against New York will be moved. That means the game on the 11th against Atlas will likely be the Wizards reserves against Atlas.

That timing is strange. Maybe that was an initial date? Ah who knows. Good they are playing though.
