It's been a long time coming.
The Fire's all-time leading goal scorer will be officially inducted into the club's Ring of Fire during a ceremony on October 3. Razov will join Peter Nowak, Frank Klopas, Lubos Kubik, Peter Wilt, Bob Bradley, Chris Armas, and CJ Brown as the eighth individual to be honored.
Razov is the 4th all-time highest goal scorer in MLS history with 114 (76 while with the Fire), and led the 1998 double-winning Fire team with 10 tallies. He was also a part of two other US Open Cup championship teams aside from the '98 squad. The official announcement acknowledging the induction was made today although existing Ring of Fire members agreed to include him late last summer. The process of formalizing plans for the induction apparently pushed the actual announcement until now.
The ceremony will take place before the October 3 match against the New England Revolution rather than July 11, when the Seattle Sounders are in town. Razov currently works as an assistant for the Sounders. Details pertaining to the date selection and the ceremony have yet to be announced.
