MLS Regular Season
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Monday, February 4, 2013) – The Colorado Rapids announced a pair of schedule changes today, first updating the kickoff time of the April 6 home match against Real Salt Lake to 5:30 p.m. MT. That game, the second Subaru Rocky Mountain Cup match of 2013, will be broadcast live on NBC Sports Network and was previously scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Wednesday, January 30, 2013) – Colorado Rapids midfielder Martín Rivero is expected to miss 2-3 months while recovering from a fracture in his right foot suffered in Tuesday’s preseason match against the Portland Timbers. Rivero will return to Denver today to receive further evaluation on the injury.
After watching countless of college matches on video, attending multiple NCAA conference tournaments and U.S. youth camps, and conducting their tryouts, the Rapids technical staff can see the end of the college scouting road.
Now that the 2013 schedule is out, fans without season tickets will be scrolling through to see which home games they can attend. I'm here to give you a hand...or, maybe a nudge.
Teams in MLS have a history of doing much better when playing at home compared to on the road, which is why it's so important to get as many points as possible out of home matches.
Seven weeks. That's how long before the 2013 season kicks off, with the Rapids visiting FC Dallas for First Kick on March 2.
With the complete schedule unveiled today, let's break it down a bit:
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Wednesday, January 9, 2013) – The Colorado Rapids released their 2013 regular season today, announcing that the club will host 17 matches starting with the March 9 home opener against the Philadelphia Union at 4:00 p.m. MT at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Tuesday, January 8, 2013) – The Colorado Rapids announced on Tuesday that the club has re-signed Marvell Wynne, a 26-year-old defender and seven-year MLS veteran, to a new contract. Per league and team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
