Partner Club

Arsenal FC

On February 9, 2007, the Rapids announced a commercial alliance agreement with English Premier League club Arsenal Football Club. The establishment of the Arsenal Center of Excellence at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and the development of the Arsenal Cup, an annual youth tournament open to American club teams, highlight the alliance, which includes a combination of commercial and marketing efforts, along with an exchange of best practices in the Rapids’ first-ever club-to-club relationship. The Rapids may conduct a portion of their preseason training at Arsenal’s training ground each year.
