Padraig Smith, Colorado Rapids Executive VP & General Manager said: “For the past several months, the club has been working closely with local health authorities and government officials to develop a plan to safely host fans at our stadium again. We’re pleased to hear that the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has approved our plan to do so. The health and safety of our supporters is our key priority in this process and we look forward to hosting fans at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park at the appropriate time during the next phase of MLS play. Further details will be provided in the near future.”
Currently, MLS has approved three more games to finish up the month of September, so this will apply to future games, not their matches against San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday, September 23 or Sporting Kansas City on Sunday, September 27.
