Thursday at 7 p.m. CT, SportingKC.com is throwing it back to the very beginning.
The beginning, of course, is April 13, 1996.
On this date, the Kansas City Wiz welcomed over 21,000 fans to Arrowhead Stadium for their inaugural MLS match against the Colorado Rapids. Digital Takawira wasted no time becoming a folk hero, bagging a brace, while longtime United States international and eventual MLS head coach Frank Klopas also found the score sheet as the Wiz prevailed 3-0 in a triumphant first chapter for the club.
SportingKC.com will stream the historic showdown in its entirety on Thursday, featuring second-stream commentary from multiple former players who competed in the game. Per MLS rules, the stream will be geofenced to viewers in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska.
