Wolves look forward to role in SuperSearch drama

From www.SeattleWolvesFC.com

This Saturday, January 31st, the Seattle Wolves FC will take on the Sounders Super Search Trialists in front of a live audience and television crews filming for the Sounders Super Search reality television show. The match kicks-off at 1:00pm inside the Starfire Sports Stadium, and is open to the public, free of charge.

In preparation for the match, the Wolves have announced the majority of the team that will represent the club in this historic contest. The final two roster spots for the match will be announced today and tomorrow on SeattleWovlesFC.com .

Wolves' Technical Director, Alex Weaver, is excited about the match. "This is a great opportunity for the Sounders Super Search trialists, as one of them will be signed to an MLS contract for the 2009 season. We (the Wolves) also look at this as an opportunity, going into an exciting 2009 season. We're going to make these players on trial have to work for that spot on Seattle Sounders FC."

The match has all of the ingredients to be really exciting for the fans on hand. Not only is it open to the public, free of admission, but "these boys are going to be flying on both sides of the ball", said Wolves' Assistant General Manager, Clay Walton-House. "This match will not lack any intensity or pace, and let's not forget, some of the best amateur players in the Pacific Northwest will be on the field."

Footage from the historic match will be used in the final live broadcast of the Sounders Super Search reality television show, airing on NBC King 5 after the Super Bowl on Sunday February 1.

As part of the build up towards Saturday's match, three rostered Wolves took some time before training last night to show off the club's new uniforms, with corporate sponsors for the match, Jones Soda, Agate Pass Transportation, College Pro Painters, Soccer West and ATEC Development.

Gabe Sturm, Brandon Sprague and Sean Conlon were the first to don the Seattle Wolves FC kit that will be worn on Saturday against the Seattle Sounders Super Search team.

Mutanda Kwesele has been removed from the roster due to an injury sustained in Wednesday's training. Kwesele will likely be replaced by Wolves' striker, Jason Cascio, who spent the 2008 season with the Seattle Sounders (USL-1) and played at Seattle University. The final two roster spots will be announced on SeattleWovlesFC.com today and tomorrow.

The match kicks-off at 1:00pm inside the Starfire Stadium this Saturday. Admission to the match is free and open to the public.

The Nike Azteca uniforms worn during the match will be worn throughout the SPSL season, and replaced in March with the Wolves 2009 PCSL and PDL uniforms.
