- The banners are placed the entire length of the Mall from Broadway to Market Street and feature the Rapids' 2009 branding images as well as the date of 2009 Opening Night!

- Billboards are currently posted around the Denver metro area in small medium and large sizes in locations all around the city featuring the Rapids' branding look for 2009 with action photos overlaid by the words HONOR PASSION and HEART!
- Bus shelter signs in and around downtown in 2 different styles along some of Denver's busiest intersections and thoroughfares featuring the Rapids' branding look and action shots of the club's players with the messages of March 28 Opening Day and Season Tickets!
