COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Tuesday, April 8, 2014) – The Colorado Rapids have partnered with 13 new companies, adding to the 28 existing, renewing and founding partners, for the 2014 Major League Soccer season. A full list of Rapids partners is below, and each will have an impact on our Rapids fan experience at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and throughout the community.

“Our sponsorship staff has been tireless in attracting and working with businesses that recognize the strength and growth of the Rapids and our fan base,” said Rapids President Tim Hinchey. “These companies are among the top in their industries and allow us to have a greater impact in the community, while also providing investment in our teams at all levels, as well as stadium, facilities, staff and more.”

Among the new Colorado Rapids partners in 2014 is the Colorado National Guard, who will sponsor a new player entrance tunnel for use on game days. Delta Dental will present the Rapids match against Los Angeles on August 20 on “Brush With Me Night” and is sponsoring the Futbolito tournament at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on June 28th.  Rocky Mountain Health Plans is the new presenting sponsor of the Colorado Rapids Street Team, which makes appearances throughout Colorado to engage with the community on behalf of the club.

As Founding Partners, adidas, Coca-Cola, Dick’s Sporting Goods and HealthONE will continue their support and presence in many aspects of the Colorado Rapids Soccer Club. Having been with the Rapids since the club’s relocation to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in 2007, the Founding Partners are among the most visible sponsors of the club.

Finally, several companies have opted to renew their support of the team, signing new agreements with the club during the offseason, including Westerra Credit Union, which offers the exclusive Colorado Rapids branded credit and debit cards. Rapids fans will also be able to participate in the special World Soccer Celebration presented by Western Union events this summer in Denver. See below for a full list of the Colorado Rapids corporate partners, including the Founding Partners, new and renewing partners, and those sponsors whose original agreements continue through 2014.
