Community Ticket Donation Program

On behalf of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE) we would like to take this opportunity to invite your organization to apply for the KSE Ticket Donation Program for the 2012-13 seasons. KSE is pleased to be able to donate tickets to a limited number of Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Mammoth and Colorado Rapids home games at Pepsi Center and Dick's Sporting Goods Park and would like to offer this opportunity to a wide range of organizations.

Message In Lights

For a $50 contribution to Kroenke Sports Charities, your message will be displayed on the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park Stadium Video Board during one Rapids home game.

Acknowledge someone, "Happy Birthday”, "Happy Anniversary”, “Congratulations”, or "Welcome" in a special way – let them see their name shine through the stadium during an exciting evening of MLS Soccer!

Please contact for more information.
