COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Wednesday, June 26, 2013) – The Colorado Rapids are making additional seating available for the match next Thursday, July 4 at 7:30 p.m. MT against the New York Red Bulls, presented by HealthONE. The game, which is part of the 18th annual 4thFest presented by Westerra Credit Union at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, will have special sideline seating, bleacher seats, and individual tickets in suites, which are available for purchase by calling 303-825-GOAL or visiting www.ColoradoRapids.com.

For the first time in several seasons, sideline seating is available for $75 each, giving fans the closest view possible with directors-style chairs placed behind the field boards on the warning track for the visit of Thierry Henry and the New York Red Bulls. For $100, fans can purchase an individual ticket in a West-sideline suite, which are normally sold to full groups, and also receive a $10 stadium voucher good at any concession stand or retail location. Additionally, fans can still purchase seats in the bleachers on the concourse behind Sections 101 and 134 for just $25.

Prior to and during the match, fans can take part in the 4thFest activities which will take place in the parking lots outside of Eighteen76 (formerly the Cantina). The festival starts at 5:00 p.m. and will feature a Family Activity Zone with activities like karaoke, a zip line and climbing wall, arts and crafts, and face painting. For adults 21 years of age and older, Eighteen76 and the Budweiser Build-a-Bar will be open, a mechanical bull will be on site, and the supporters will host their Centennial 38 tailgate.

The Rapids take on Montreal Impact this Saturday in their third straight road match before returning home for the July 4 match against New York Red Bulls and July 7 battle against D.C. United, part of Military Appreciation Night presented by Coca-Cola. Both matches will feature fireworks from Zambelli afterwards, as well as activities in the parking lot before and during the match.
