2016 FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup game schedule announced

In conjunction with FC Tucson and Major League Soccer, the Colorado Rapids today announced their upcoming schedule for the 2016 FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup Tournament.

The Rapids will begin the tournament against first-year USL side, Swope Park Rangers on Wednesday, February 17 (5:30 p.m. MT). Three days later, Colorado will take on Houston Dynamo on Saturday, February 20 (7:00 p.m. MT), followed by a matchup against the 2015 U.S. Open Cup champions, Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday, February 24 (8:00 p.m. MT).

This will mark the third consecutive year in which the Rapids will partake in the Desert Diamond Cup. Mastroeni’s men will look to bring home the cup after finishing second in 2015. The Rapids were edged 2-1 by Rocky Mountain Cup rivals Real Salt Lake in last year’s final.

This year’s tournament will build on last year’s wildly popular festival environment, featuring food and famous frozen Eegee’s, as well as a variety of family-­friendly games and entertainment throughout the preseason.

Tickets for all matches can be purchased at www.fctucson.com/team/ticket.
