  • The Major Indoor Soccer League will hold its 2012 MISL Combine Sept. 27-30 in Independence and Kansas City.
    “We wanted to give our fans the chance to see something special, something they have never seen before,” Comets president Brian Budzinski said.
    The combine will offer 96 players the opportunity to take the field before MISL staff and coaches as they try to earn a spot on an MISL team’s roster for the 2012-13 season. The four-day event is free and open to the public and will be held at the Independence Events Center, the KC Sports Lodge in Independence and the Comets’ training facility, the KC Soccer Dome.
    The first day of the combine will be at the KC Soccer Dome from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; the second day will be at the KC Sport Lodge from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; the third day will be at the Events Center, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and the fourth day will be at the KC Soccer Dome from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
    “The MISL Combine is a fantastic opportunity for the nation’s best talent to get out in front of MISL coaches and earn a place in professional indoor soccer,” MISL senior director Chris Economides said. “We are looking forward to a fantastic display of skill ahead of what looks to be one of the most exciting MISL seasons yet.”
    The 96 players will be put through their paces by MISL coaches and USL national technical director Peter Mellor. The players will receive instruction, individualized testing and the opportunity to showcase their abilities.
    “We are excited to host the 2012 MISL Combine,” Budzinski said. “The impression Kansas City recently made hosting the MLB All-Star Game events opened the eyes to many across the country, and we are thrilled to continue to show everyone at the MISL combine what a great area this is for major sports events.
    “The IEC is a state-of-the-art arena and has created a great atmosphere for Comets fans,” Budzinski said.  “We are very proud to showcase one of our partners on a national stage.”
