Rapids To Host 2008 Opening Day at Home vs. LA Galaxy

COMMERCE CITY CO (ColoradoRapids.com) – The Colorado Rapids will kick off their 13th Major League Soccer season next year against the Los Angeles Galaxy and David Beckham on Saturday March 29 2008 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park at 7:30 p.m. MT.
The Colorado Rapids' complete 2008 MLS match schedule will be released at a later date.
"It's an outstanding opportunity to show what our team will look and play like explained Rapids head coach Fernando Clavijo. "Both teams will be looking to regroup from disappointing seasons. It's a new beginning in 2008 and there are great expectations that we hope to reward with a great game."

This will be the second year in a row that the Rapids have opened the season with a home game. Last year Colorado opened Dick’s Sporting Goods Park with a 2-1 victory over D.C. United.
