Preseason Schedule

The Rapids made the rumors official today. Besides training at the Dick the Rapdis will be taking tow trips in preseason. From February 21st through the 27th they'll go to where this blog started, the Valley of the Sun. Well actually Casa Grande, AZ. They are going to scrimmage against other MLS teams there. Already confirmed to be training down in AZ are FSL, Seattle, and Vancouver of D-II (until next year when they join MLS). Of course they waited until I left Arizona to start training there. ;)

After returning to Denver for a week the team will head to London to use Arsenal's training facilities from March 7th - 14th. While there they are expected to play against the reserve sides of a couple of EPL teams. The rumored names are Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Tottenham. Arsenal is 29.9% owned by Rapids owner Stan Kroenke and are a partner club of the Rapids.

Finally they'll return home for the Charity Shield match at the Dick against the Sounders on March 19th.
