Rapids Supporters groups Class VI and the Centennial Firm have announced that they will be hosting their annual season kickoff bash at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Friday, March 19, prior to the Rapids' Charity Shield match vs. Seattle.
The Rapids Supporters' kickoff party will be free and open for all to attend (to all fans holding a game ticket for that night's match) and will be the first-ever opportunity for fans to experience the brand new Rapids Supporters Terrace, which will be christened that night as the supporters test out their lungs and legs on the terracing platforms for the first time as a trial run for Opening Day.
All existing and interested Rapids supporters are invited to attend, and encouraged to bring friends, co-workers, teammates and others....this isn't just a party for parting sake; it's also a recruiting event to try and bring more members into the Rapids Supporters Clubs' ranks!
Excerpted details from the Rapids Supporters' e-vite below:
