World Cup Draw Party Recap

This morning we hosted an exclusive VIP watch party for the 2010 World Cup Draw at Fado Irish Pub in LoDo. A packed house of invited guests enjoyed a full Irish breakfast courtesy of the Rapids, and watched the group draw for the World Cup unfold live on ESPN2!

The United States welcomed a kind draw, featuring a marquee match-up with England in their group opening game on June 12th. Beckham, Rooney, Terry and company will have all they can handle with the US come this summer. Slovenia and Algeria rounded out the group and will face the US on June 18th and June 23rd, respectively.

We had a special treat for the attendees thanks to our friends at adidas. We unveiled the new 2010 World Cup Official Match Ball at the event, and even raffled off two official balls for our guests to take home! Thanks to adidas for their support and congratulations to our winners!

In addition to the fabulous adidas soccer balls, we also raffled off an XBox 360 and three copies of the new FIFA Soccer 2010 video game, courtesy of Major League Soccer and XBox.

This summer the Colorado Rapids will be the source for all things World Cup, from viewing parties to giveaways to exclusive Rapids benefits! Please check all the latest Colorado Rapids and World Cup 2010 updates on our website,

We hope to see you out this summer at all the Rapids Official World Cup Viewing Parties!!

Respectfully? I doubt that Slovenia and Algeria will be all that respectful, maybe respective?

When are the Raps going to get a shirt sponsor?
