RTL guest for COLvSKC: Kofi Opare



DJ Jen Jones

The Rapids are proud to welcome back DJ Jen Jones, who will be spinning tunes at DSGP throughout the season from her booth on the north terrace!

The native of Australia returns for her second season and will be ready to rock the crowd before, during and after home games. 



Countdown to Kickoff

The flag is synonymous with the sport of soccer. It is seen as a symbol of support, used to rally the faithful. This season, we're placing flags in the hands of our fans to help raise the pre-kick atmosphere at DICK'S Sporting Goods Park. Join Centennial 38 and our Season Ticket Members in celebrating this full-stadium, fan-led tradition! Be in your seats 15 minutes prior to kick to welcome the Burgundy Boys out to the pitch, singing along to the 'Mountain Roads' anthem as loud as you can. Forgot the words? No problem! Follow the lyrics on the video board and be a part of something pure to soccer culture and a club tradition!



Join in on the tradition

In addition, fans can become a 'Flag Captain' in their section. If you see an unused flag at the bottom of your section, and you hear “Mountain Roads” begin and see the lyrics on the scoreboard, that is your cue to begin waving your flag until kickoff! After you're done waving the flag, please place it at the bottom of the section as you found it. 




Metal Detectors

This season, the Rapids and DICK'S Sporting Goods Park will be implementing walk-through metal detectors at all gates. Fans will be asked to pass through the metal detectors before having their ticket scanned by a staff member. All items will need to be taken out of pockets. Bags will be examined by a staff member as fans enter the stadium.

Bag Policy

Bags must be smaller than 14"x14"x6" to be allowed in the gates. Please arrive early to allow ample time to pass through the metal detectors and get your ticket scanned!

Security Dogs

As part of its efforts to enhance security at all Colorado Rapids home games, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE) announced an agreement with Phantom K9 to help ensure a safe environment for fans, staff, athletes and performers.

Make sure you head straight to Eighteen76 and grab a drink – the player will meet fans in Eighteen76 after the final whistle!
