Wizards, Chiefs release additional seats for Manchester United match
Additional upper-level tickets have been released for Sunday’s soccer match pitting the Kansas City Wizards against Manchester United at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Wizards and the Kansas City Chiefs, who are co-sponsoring the famed British soccer team's appearance in Kansas City, said they released the additional seats due to high demand. The tickets will cost $20 and are available through Ticketmaster.com, by calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000 or at any area Ticketmaster outlet. Special packages are also available through the Kansas City Wizards and can be purchased by calling 1-888-4KC-GOAL. The exhibition match will be the first-ever event at the New Arrowhead Stadium.
“Fan response for our match against Manchester United has been tremendous,” Wizards President Robb Heineman said in a news release announcing the $20 seats. “The great crowd we are expecting Sunday will reinforce that Kansas City is a premier soccer city and that the New Arrowhead Stadium will make an ideal host venue if the FIFA World Cup comes to the United States in 2018 or 2022.”
Kansas City is one of 18 cities still in the running to host matches should the USA bid to host the 2018 or 2022 FIFA World Cup be successful. FIFA will select the host nation for both 2018 and 2022 on December 2, 2010.
