Colorado Rapids Games
Based in the Denver suburb of Commerce City, Colorado Rapids are a professional American soccer club. They are part of Major League Soccer (MLS), competing in the Western Conference. The team was founded as a charter club back in 1996. The first year was tough. Although the team leadership had collected experienced, talented players, they finished last in their conference and had the worst points total in the entire league. Recovering from this tough start, in 1997, they made it to the MLS Cup final. Although they lost to D.C. United that year, Colorado Rapids proved that they were a team to beat.
That early start has set the tone for much of Colorado Rapids’ record: alternating between sweet successes and souring losses. Some high points include wining the MLS Cup (2010) and being runners up in MLS Cup (1997), Supporters’ Shield (2016), and Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup (1999). International competitions are always tough; Colorado Rapids have fought their way into Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) matches in 1998, 2011, 2012, and 2018.
When it comes to rivalries, Colorado Rapids keeps in regional. When Real Salt Lake was added to MLS in 2005, they became a natural rival. Both teams are in the Rocky Mountain region, so they are competing for regional bragging rights – and the Rocky Mountain Cup. Some fans report a rivalry between Kansas City, because there is always something at stake for the teams when they compete head-to-head, but other fans say there is always something at stake when on the field, regardless of which teams are competing. As MLS continues to expand its reach, maybe more teams will emerge in the Rocky Mountain region, creating more competition and fan frenzy.
To watch Colorado Rapids in action, spectators can purchase tickets to any of the team’s games, which they play at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, also known as DSG Park. This has been their venue since 2007. It is located eight miles outside of Denver in Commerce City. The $131 million venue is a soccer-specific stadium, created just for Colorado Rapids. They run a number of community programs, including youth soccer, too. For matches, it comfortably holds 18,061 people, but it can accommodate as many as 19,734 people for special soccer events. At its maximum capacity, it can be reconfigured for 27,000 people, for concerts and similar events. One unique fact about DSG Park is that it has a higher elevation than any other stadium regularly used by MLS teams. It is 5,200 feet above sea level.
