Kansas City Wizards Reportedly Discussing Team And Stadium Names

The Kansas City Wizards are moving into a brand spankin' new facility and, according to spokesman Rob Thomson, they're "discussing" naming rights to the stadium.

If soccer is on the upswing in the area, then this would be a good investment for a company because it's much cheaper than naming rights to stadiums of the four major pro sports (but also less exposure).

That's not all, according to Thomson. They're also discussing the team name.

So will the Wizards field a team called the KC Sprint at Sprint Stadium?

“No, are you being serious?” quips Wizards spokesman Rob Thomson. “That’s the first I’ve ever heard of that. That being said, we’ve been in discussions about the naming rights.”

For both the team and the new stadium, Thomson says.

If it means money, then I'd be the first to sell out and go with the KC Sprint.
