FOOTBALL FANS HAVE FACTS AT THEIR FINGERTIPS WITH THE NEW MCI CARD
 WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether you fall asleep before the Monday night football game ends or are on the road when your favorite team is playing, football information doesn't have to remain a mystery until the nightly news broadcast or the morning headlines.
 With MCI ExpressInfo, an advanced feature of the new MCI Card, football fanatics have up-to-date football information available at their fingertips. From now through the end of the football season, MCI's ExpressInfo offers customers the following weekly football information:
 -- Professional football schedules;
 -- Top 25 college football schedules;
 -- Next week's football schedule;
 -- Updated scores for pro and top 25 college games while in
 progress (30 minute increments); and
 -- Final college scores for remaining colleges (both evening
 and afternoon games).
 Football information is offered through the new MCICard in addition to regularly featured information, such as stock quotations, weather, and business and headline news. To order an MCI Card or receive additional information, consumers may call MCI at 800-444-3333.
 When using the new MCICard, customers hear voice instructions that guide them through all possible functions of the card. Football information may be accessed by pressing "asterisk 1" from the main card menu. Customers will then hear a series of options and may choose specific topics important to them.
 MCI was the first major long distance company to offer advanced features such as conference calling, MCI Messenger, speed dialing and MCI ExpressInfo to consumers in a single calling card. MCI ExpressInfo, the feature providing football information, allows customers to access key information for only 49 cents per minute.
 MCI Communications Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: MCIC), headquartered in Washington, is the nation's second largest long distance provider. MCI offers residential savings through a number of products and services including: Friends & Family; MCI PrimeTime; MCI Personal 800; MCI Around the World; the MCI Card and the Friends & Family Card.
