Rapids Foundation's Banner Sales Start Saturday

COMMERCE CITY CO (April 14 2008) - Rapids fans have seen the club's marketing efforts in tangible form all over the city this year; now this is your unique chance to own a piece of the club's advertising!
The Rapids have produced several streetpole banners as part of the club's outdoor advertising campaign earlier this year featuring stars such as Bouna Coundoul Christian Gomez Ugo Ihemelu Terry Cooke and Pablo Mastroeni and now the Rapids Foundation is giving away these banners to fans when they make a donation to the Rapids’ official charity!
During five designated Rapids home games (April 19 May 4 15 24 & June 1) fans will have the opportunity to donate $75 or more to the Rapids Community Care Foundation and receive the autographed banner of the game’s designated player.
Quantities are very limited; interested fans should plan on arriving to the stadium early when gates open for the opportunity to get theirs!
Fans will also have to attend all five Rapids games to collect all five limited edition Rapids autographed player banners! Here's the schedule of which player's featured banner will be available for purchase at which match:
April 19: Bouna Coundoul
May 4: Christian Gomez
May 15: Terry Cooke
May 24: Pablo Mastroeni
June 1: Ugo Ihemelu
Fans can stop by the Rapids Foundation booth located atop Section 125 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park during the games to take home an autographed banner of their favorite player! Sales start when gates open 1 hour before kickoff at each home match.
