COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Colorado Rapids 2 will kick off the 2023 MLS NEXT Pro season at home on Sunday, March 26, at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park in a match against Sporting KC II (7 p.m. MT).
The 2023 home opener comes exactly a year after the team’s inaugural MLS NEXT Pro match versus Sporting KC II on March 27, 2022. After battling to a 1-1 draw in regular time, the two sides experienced their first-ever MLS NEXT Pro shootout, a rule established in the inaugural season that gave teams the opportunity to win an extra point on a shootout victory at the end of a draw. Ultimately, Rapids 2 took home two points on the night after beating Kansas City in a 4-2 shootout victory.
Colorado came out of its inaugural season with a 7-11-6 record, falling just short of a spot in the 2022 MLS NEXT Pro Playoffs.
