MLS Regular Season
With ten games remaining in the 2013 MLS regular season, the Colorado Rapids - and just about every other team - are right in the thick of things in the race for the MLS Supporters' Shield, which recognizes the team that finishes with the best overall record.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Think 20 was the magic number? Think bigger.
Major League Soccer plans to add another four teams by the 2020 season, Commissioner Don Garber announced at halftime during the broadcast of Wednesday night’s AT&T All-Star Game at Sporting Park.
The league had previously held to the idea that a 20-team league was the sweet spot for the foreseeable future. MLS has added 10 clubs since the beginning of the 2005 season, and the recent addition of New York City FC – who begin play in 2015 – will bring the league to 20.
Some fans are still not convinced that this Rapids side has it within them to push for the playoffs, pointing to the fact that they’ve played more games than any of their rivals.
Here’s how things look as of July 29, 2013:
MONTRÉAL IMPACT vs COLORADO RAPIDS
STADE SAPUTO, Montréal, Qué.
June 29, 2013 (WEEK 18, MLS Game #155)
7 p.m. ET (UDN; TVA; Altitude)
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.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Tuesday, May 21, 2013) – The Colorado Rapids have made additional seating available for this Saturday’s match against Chivas USA at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, which kicks off at 7:00 p.m. MT. The extra bleachers, as well as standing room only tickets and single seats throughout the stadium, are still available for purchase by calling 303-825-GOAL or CLICKING HERE to purchase.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The Colorado Rapids probably wish MLS commissioner Don Garber hadn’t looked so favorably on the appeal of San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Marvin Chavez.
Chavez drilled a knuckling free kick from 30 yards out in the 78th minute to beat Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin as the Quakes pulled out a 1-1 tie with the Rapids on Saturday. The Honduran international was only available because Garber upheld an appeal of Chavez’s two-game suspension Wednesday.
MLS fans throughout the country are in for a nice treat this weekend.
