Kick off time for the Fire's July 23rd friendly against the eventual Premier League champions Manchester United has been moved from 7pm to 4pm. World Football Challenge event organizers have decided to move the start up for a reason and I'm assuming it's not to announce the Fire have signed Wayne Rooney after the match. The most sensible guess for the move would seem to be to accomodate a broadcast schedule. There's been no announcement yet regarding television rights for the event but the thought of this team being exposed to a national audience against the Red Devils is not a pretty one.
Unless of course the Fire have some major new additions in store when the transfer window opens again on July 15.
