Update on the New Site...

Rapids Fans –

We want to give you an update on the progress of the team’s new website. Yes, for those that haven’t heard, we will be launching a new ColoradoRapids.com shortly. We’ll be joining the League network of sites, which we’re very much looking forward to.

Last Thursday, Major League Soccer launched the new League site, MLSsoccer.com (formerly MLSnet.com). As some fans that visited the website in the first few days may have experienced, the debut of the new site was not without glitches and elements that needed ironing out.

The next day, three other MLS teams launched their new sites. The Rapids were also in the queue to launch last Friday, however during our testing and reviews of the new site, we decided to wait until a few more of the bugs were cleaned up before giving the go ahead to launch.

MLSsoccer.com issued a statement on Monday evening explaining the reasons behind some of the major problems the sites were experiencing, and reiterating their commitment to delivering fans a great web experience. We fully believe this, because we know how hard the crew at MLS headquarters have been working on this project.

We’re confident that in short time, possibly as soon as Wednesday, we’ll be able to launch the new ColoradoRapids.com. It’s a major task that has been taken on, and we’re confident that in the not too distant future, all the pieces will come together.

We appreciate your support and understanding.
