While many twenty-somethings in the Kansas City area can rattle off the names of the top five Chiefs players, few are familiar with the names Michael Green, Kerry Zavagnin, Mo Johnston, or Tony Meola -- all of whom just happen to be the stars of the Wizards, Kansas City's number-one-placed professional soccer team. So in the spirit of Generation Next, the Wizards have brewed up a little sumpin'-sumpin' to get the grooviest of folks to the stadium by pumpin' up the jam. Two hours before each home game, they host the Mojo Club in the stadium's northwest corner, on the lower level concourse at section 13. Some special ingredients -- Foosball and pool tables, drink specials, and club beats -- help spice up the Arrowhead atmosphere.
Wizards public relations manager Rob Thomson says that the Wizards thoroughly enjoy the support they already have but are seeking 21- to 30-year-olds to become first-timers or, better still, avid fans. "We want fans that can identify with the players, and most of the players are between the ages of 21 and 30 years old. I know that once people come out they will realize what they've been missing. We like to please the fans and we are always open to suggestions for more great fun at Arrowhead with the Wizards."
