KC to Play Montreal, Portland and LA in Preseason?
That's the word from the captain of the Montreal Impact, Nevio Pizzolitto, on the Oranges at Halftime podcast yesterday. According to Pizzolitto, the Impact, who will preseason in Arizona as well will play a preseason tournament against Sporting KC, Portland and LA to prepare them for their final season in the NASL before they move up to MLS for the 2012 season. This makes sense, LA trained in Arizona last year as well and it's not surprising that Portland will train down there too. Montreal is a bit of a surprise, but it'll be good to play against some teams who KC won't see two other times this season as well. This is the first word on any preseason opponents for KC down in Arizona as they prepare for the 2011 season. There are some other fairly interesting bits of information, none necessarily Wizards related, but check out that podcast if you want some more interesting information.
