Introducing the Bulldog Rapids Supporters Club

Want to find out about the newest Colorado Rapids Supporters Club?

Check out the Bulldog Supporters Group, who are launching their new club with a kickoff event this Saturday night!

Who are the Bulldog Supporters Club (or "The Bobbies", as they'll be known)? In their own words:

"We are an independent supporters group of the Colorado Rapids, with the goal of adding to the atmosphere at Dick’s Sporting goods Park, being a positive force for the Rapids and their fans, acting as ambassadors for the game and the team, fostering camaraderie among ourselves and all Rapids fans, and most of all vocally supporting our hometown club with the belief that we are capable of winning championships.

"We are welcoming new members that are interested in standing, chanting & singing, drinking pints before during and after the match, and having a good time with other like-minded football fanatics. We will bring a party-like atmosphere to the ground win or lose."

Membership in the club includes the best possible price for Rapids season tickets, a club shirt, scarf, invites to special events, discounted bus rides to and from the stadium, and "copious amounts of rip roaring good times"!

The club is having a special kickoff event at the British Bulldog (the club's home base) this Saturday night.

Dinner and drinks will be provided at the Bulldog, and Rapids coaches and players will be in attendance to address the group, answer questions and chat with supporters.
