The Colorado Rapids announced today that two home fixtures have been moved to accommodate television and the 2015 Gold Cup. Originally the Rapids were scheduled to play Rocky Mountain Rivals Real Salt Lake at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Sunday, July 12 and Saturday, October 3. Due to the Gold Cup, those fixtures will now take place as such:
Colorado Rapids vs Real Salt Lake, Saturday, July 11--Kick Off at 7PM (TV--Altitude)
Colorado Rapids vs Real Salt Lake, Sunday, October 4--Kick Off at 5PM (TV--Fox Sports 1)
At the end of the day, this is a fairly minor change, and it allows the Rapids to keep their National TV exposure with the match on Fox Sports 1. The Rapids will look to reclaim the Rocky Mountain Cup with a trip to Sandy, Utah to take on RSL on Sunday, June 7 at 3PM MDT at Rio Tinto Stadium.
The Rapids first home match of the year is next Saturday at 2PM MDT against New York City FC.
