Double Header Next Weekend?

It looks like there may be a double header out at Community America Ballpark next Saturday. According to the website of AAC Eagles, out of Chicago, they will be playing their US Open Cup qualifier against KC Athletics out at Community America Ballpark after the Wizards take on the Fire that same night. This would be a nice idea for both the Wizards and Athletics, as it allows the Wizards to develop a stronger relationship with the local soccer community by helping host this game for a team trying to qualify for the Open Cup. It's a good idea for the Athletics because it gives them the opportunity to play in front of a larger crowd, and even though there will be a nice group of Chicago fans at the game, should provide the Athletics with a bit of a home field advantage. I'm trying to get official confirmation of this, but I like this idea.
