Soccer is widely considered the world's most popular sport. It’s exciting enough to make entire cities break out in song or riot. As the 2010 MLS regular season sweeps through its final weeks, the Rapids' surge towards playoff-seeding supremacy runs directly through their venerable opponents. Come watch the Rapids kick, knee, head, and telepathically guide the ball past the outstretched arms of the opposing goalie. Relish the team's well-timed passes, impenetrable defense, perfectly executed corner kicks, and authority to card the referee for foul play in the parking lot after the game.
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.
