Day 47 | Attend a Colorado Rapid’s Home Game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park | Commerce City
Day 47 will take you out of the south Denver suburbs and bring you clear to the other side of Denver – to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, home of the Colorado Rapids.
If you have been reading this blog for a while or know me personally, you know I have one child really involved in soccer. One thing we had never done prior to this year is attend a Major League Colorado Rapids game. I went to a game earlier this season and will be attending tonight as well as the Rapids take on the Houston Dynamo. I enjoyed myself at the first game I attended – it was something different, faster & more physical than I expected and really very entertaining.
Everyone that has lived in the Denver area for any amount of time knows that Denver is a huge sports city. And if you are relocating to Denver, you will have that to look forward to. But I would say that the interest has been always more focused in the big 4 – Broncos, Nuggets, Avs and Rockies. There also seems to be a growing interest in lacrosse and recently it does seem that interest in soccer has grown. Of course that has has something to do with the World Cup this summer. Very different in person that watching it on tv. My daughter’s team will be attending together this evening, so it is a great bonding experience for them and fun for the parents too!
Even though this season started back in the spring there are still almost 2 months of games left on the schedule, with 6 home games at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.
The stadium is located in Commerce City – chances are you will plan on taking the Quebec exit form I70, but take a peak at the alternate routes if you will be coming via I70 east from Denver. Traffic in that area on I70 can get quite backed up and I generally do pop off the highway an exit or two early and head to Dick’s stadium through the side streets.
Speaking of soccer and a mention of the World Cup, the U.S. is attempting to bid on the 2018 / 2022 World Cup with an interest in Denver as a host city.
