Schedule Changes

MLS announced a new deal with FOX Soccer Channel today. The good news is that Colorado will have 7 games on FSC this year, tied with LA for the most in the league. The (possible) bad news is that this has forced MLS to move 3 of the Rapids game dates.

Friday April 8th, Colorado is at Dallas. This game was moved from Saturday April 9th.

Friday July 29th, Colorado is at Philly. This game was moved from Saturday July 30th.

Friday August 5th, Colorado hosts Columbus. This game was moved from Saturday August 6th. THIS IS A HOME GAME CHANGE

The other 4 games on FSC (Portland, Seattle, @Seattle, and @LA) did not require a date change.

Only the Portland home game to start the season is non-exclusive and could be picked up by local TV. The other 6 are exclusive to FSC only.
