The 2017 league schedule was finally released on Wednesday, along with a new match ball design. The new ball design looks incredible!
Highlights for the 2017 Rapids schedule are of course the season/home opener March 4th against the New England Revolution. Other highlights include…
March 18 – Minnesota United – first ever meeting between the expansion United and the Rapids
April 15 – Real Salt Lake – First leg of the Rocky Mountain Cup
June 24 – @ Atlanta United – First ever meeting between Rapids & the ATLU
July 4 – Seattle Sounders FC – First meeting since the Western Conference playoff finals of 2016.The stakes will be different in this matchup but I expect the Rapids to show a decidely different team this time around.
Congratulations to Tim Hinchey for adding to his award case with winning the MLS Exec of the Year for 2016! Well deserved.
