Tomorrow is the day, the "Big News for KC" announcement down at the Power and Light District. At this point most signs and most people expect to see the team announce that the Wizards name is going away and the team will now be known as Sporting KC. It also appears the Wizards will be changing their colors and we'll be getting a new logo that you've already seen on this blog.
So tomorrow should be incredibly interesting to see how all that goes and how fans respond, there's been a lot of negativity voiced on the comments, here, on the event page on Facebook, and Bigsoccer, so it'll be interesting to see how much of that transitions over to the announcement itself tomorrow.
Today the team confirmed the rumor that had been running around, saying that Omar Bravo WILL be introduced tomorrow to KC fans for the first time. And I'd put money on him wearing the new jersey. I also wouldn't be surprised if the jersey he comes out in happens to have a jersey sponsor on it after Don Garber's comments in the State of the League today.
As I tweeted early today. For those that have read the Fox4 article (since edited), or listened to 96.5 The Buzz this morning, and read/heard that the team was discouraging fans from wearing Wizards gear, this is not true, in fact the team is actively encouraging fans to wear their Wizards gear for the announcement tomorrow.
Tomorrow, feel free to boo the announcement of the change, I know I will be. But as I said yesterday, give Robb Heineman a chance to explain why, then feel free to boo some more, but at least listen to why the team is doing it. I'm made my opinion well known on this but I am extremely interested in hearing why OnGoal is doing this and will certainly be giving Heineman my attention as he explains that portion.
