Ive been adopted by Colorado Rapids since I moved Stateside, try to go once or twice a season if I can. Its about a 5hr drive or so from where I am at. I play to make 3 or 4 this season if I can, wanna go see them in Texas twice.

Heres some snaps from the stadium when I went last year.

Overall its a pretty sweet stadium, they actually put up terraces for the two Ultras that want to stand, Pid Army and Class VI. Theyre not huge by any stretch of the imagination but its standing thats allowed and its cheap!! I think I got standing tickets for $12 a ticket with no booking fees that game. Its actually cheaper if you mention an Ultras group when you want to go. It was $25 otherwise if I am not mistaken. They have a rep that deals with certain Ultras tickets. There are 24 pitches at the stadium too and Hurling and Gaelic Football is played there quite often. When I went in 2009 Ireland B vs England B were playing Rugby the next day. Met a bunch of the players.

Heres the view from the Pid Army

Back out the other end of the stadium is where I took this shot from, the terraces are down the opposite end.

Got picked up outside the Streets of London bar in downtown Denver in this. All they ask is a couple of dollars donation for petrol

They have tailgate party's before every game too. This one was all you can drink and all you can eat for $5. Good Denver microbrew too. Class act. Over the other side there was lads playing football on the pitches there.

Yeh its pretty good too. Ive noticed with the Rapids that its SSDD with what happened with Shels. People were crying about standing, about the language, family area and blah blah blah blah. Its good to see the struggles of a fan are the same accross the world. Thats why they ended up allowing us to stand behind the goal.

Was a good time at the game I went to with Handy. Got too drunk on the way n passed out in the stands though. lol American lightweight I am. Was nice to see players on their home pitch. The Pid Army dudes were real cool too. They let me leave a nice message on the back seat of their van with a marker. lol

There was even a homebrew competition in the in the car park before the game. Real nice atmosphere. Not drinking before the game again though. lol The Irish Snug on Colfax st. had me primed way better than I would care to repeat again.
