Of the sports that penalize players for using their hands, a pie-eating contest is ranked number one in the world in terms of hilarity. Today’s Groupon delivers the number-one sport in terms of popularity, soccer: for $24, you get a Colorado Rapids party pack, including one VIP ticket (a $39 value), one Rapids burgundy T-shirt (a $20 value), and parking, a $59 total value. Choose one of the following two games:
- Rapids vs. Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday, May 29, at 7 p.m.
- Rapids vs. Columbus Crew on Saturday, June 5, at 7 p.m.
This party package gets you everything you need to bicycle-kick boredom in the face: a ticket in VIP-level seating in the Midfield East section at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, as well as a Rapids commemorative T-shirt. The parking fee is already included in the cost of your ticket. This is the Rapids’ 15th season, which lines up with the common belief that all good things come in sets of 15. Come watch them kick, knee, head, and telepathically guide the ball past the slow hands of the opposing goalie. With 2010 being a World Cup year, use the game as a primer for the international tournament that lies ahead.
Soccer is widely considered the world's most popular sport. It’s exciting enough to make entire cities break out in song or riot. Fans relish well-timed passes, impenetrable defense, perfectly executed corner kicks, and carding the referee for foul play in the parking lot after the game. Get your Groupon to cheer for the Rapids as they dominate the football pitch.
Seven Yelpers give Dick's Sporting Goods Park an impressive 4.5 stars. Here's why soccer lovers like the stadium:
In October 1995, the Colorado Rapids were introduced as one of Major League Soccer’s 10 charter teams. As one of the league's longest tenured members, the organization has brought a number of landmark moments to Denver, highlighted by a MLS Cup victory in 2010. Three years before their championship campaign, the Rapids became the centerpiece of Dick’s Sporting Goods Park—a sprawling complex that features a total of 24 fully lit sports fields. During Rapids matches, fans get swept up in the park’s lively atmosphere driven by Centennial 38, the team's official supporters group. In their designated “Supporter’s Terrace”, C38 members lead raucous cheers and wave massive flags to inspire their side.
