Looks like it is Kansas City in the MLS ... (Man, why Kansas City, away from most big Indian population centers?) ..

Here is a blog from the US confirming he is in camp at Kansas City .. This report in the Back Post is being quoted all over the internet as confirmation right now.

TOI also had said Kansas City but without confirmation - Chhetri lands in US for trials

Hope he gets a chance, but MLS is quite a high quality league, and I am not sure if he can impress them.

Here is another blog from the US, where some fans are actually asking for KC wizards to just "Get him" ... That is good to see!

The update at the reliable backpost.net blog today says, "I have been told that Sunil Chettri has looked good so far" .. That is all we know.

Kansas City Royals are doing their 5-week preseason training in Arizona .. I believe this is their last week,

Do we have anybody down in Phoenix who can go down and find some scoops for us? wrestlinglife - can you?

They train at the "Reach 11 Sports Complex in suburban Phoenix. Reach 11 is the same soccer facility that hosted the KCW Juniors when they participated in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy's Winter Showcase in late 2009" (see more details)

They have a practice match against the Columbic crew tomorrow (Mar 4th) at 11 am .. They also play the Grand Canyon university on the 7th..

That is all I know ..

Sunil Chhetri thread ...

Postby jayakris » Thu Mar 11, 2010 4:09 pm

Here is what the backpost.net blog said on Tuesday - "Had a quick phone interview with Coach Vermes this morning. We discussed trialists Craig Rocastle and Sunil Chhetri, they are still considering both of them..."

So, the rumors in India are not totally made up ..

Here is a report of the Wizards preseason game last week where Sunil Chhetri played, at the official MLSnet
Kansas City Wizards tie Columbus Crew in preseason

Kansas City was given a way back into the game not long after Carroll's strike, as forward Josh Wolff was brought down in the box after running on to a pinpoint pass from trialist forward Sunil Chhetri.


It looks like he did impress people! .. No wonder that the contract talks seem serious. I hope it happens. I would love to see him play against the Galaxy down here at the beautiful Home Depot football stadium in L.A.

I hope this news is true. It would be great if a few more Indian national players get to play in the MLS in the future.

This is a good news. Earlier Chhetri tried with some English 2nd division teams but no deal.
