Preseason Plans

The Rapids just announced their preseason plans:


Colorado to take Trips to Florida, Los Angeles and Seattle

COMMERCE CITY, COLO. (Friday, January 23, 2009) – The Colorado Rapids announced their preliminary itinerary for the 2009 MLS preseason, which includes trips to Ft. Lauderdale Fla., Los Angeles and Seattle.

Players will report to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park by Sunday, Jan. 25 and the club will hit the training pitch for the first time on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

The Rapids will have two weeks of training sessions in Colorado before traveling to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. where they will train in the Sunshine State for a second straight year and play up to three matches against opponents to be announced later.

In March, the Rapids will also be announcing a series of friendlies against other MLS clubs that will coincide with scheduled trips to Los Angeles and Seattle.

Colorado then return home to start preparations for their season opener on March 21 against Chivas USA at The Home Depot Center. The following weekend, on March 28, the Rapids host the Kansas City Wizards at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in the club’s 2009 home opener.

Colorado Rapids season tickets are on sale now at or by calling (303) 825-GOAL.

I'd love to go to Seattle for the preseason match but I think I'll have to wait for the regular-season matchup.
