WOW! What an exciting evening at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, watching our hometown soccer team, THE RAPIDS
! I'm always impressed at how family friendly the Rapids crowd is...I was never concerned that my young children would be exposed to less than desirable behavior, either from the players themselves or the crowd in the stands. Even more impressive is the stadium, which is just beautiful...there is not a bad seat in the house.
Parking is free, but can be a bit of a trek unless you get there early. Just remember which lot you are in, and you will be in good shape!
Outside food and beverages (except for water) are not allowed, so plan accordingly. Most games start after major meals, so that is a plus, but if you do want to eat at the stadium, there is plenty to choose from!
After The Rapids proved victorious over the New York Red Bulls, Commerce City hosted one of the most spectacular fireworks displays I have ever seen. We got to watch from on
the field (which was super exciting for my 8 year old soccer fan), and the show lasted at least 30 minutes!
