Wells Fargo's 'Goals for Success' aids local youth program

During the 2019 season, the Colorado Rapids scored 58 goals, tying them with Atlanta United, Philadelphia Union and the LA Galaxy for the third-most in MLS. This total marked the second highest single-season tally in club history behind the 1998 team that reached 62.
