Colorado Rapids Details
The Colorado Rapids was one of the 10 teams to form Major League Soccer in 1995. Fans were treated to winning soccer in the team’s first decade with an appearance in the 1997 MLS Cup and the 1999 Open Cup finals. The club reached the 2002 MLS playoff semifinal, a year in which the team’s front office won annual awards from the league. The Rapids were purchased by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke in 2004 and later gained affiliation with English Premier League side Arsenal because of Kroenke’s ownership stake in both teams.
The club’s biggest success in its first two decades was winning the 2010 MLS Cup final. Colorado narrowly qualified for the playoffs as the fifth-place team in the Western Conference. The Rapids defeated Columbus Crew SC in the quarterfinal and the San Jose Earthquakes in the semifinal.
Colorado met FC Dallas for the MLS Cup final in Toronto, a neutral location prior to the league’s shift to hosting the final at the best remaining team’s stadium. The match was tied 1-1 when Conor Casey scored against FC Dallas. Colorado’s victory came in extra time when FC Dallas defender George John scored an own goal. Casey was named the 2010 MLS Cup MVP for his game-tying strike.
The Rapids shared Mile High Stadium with the Denver Broncos from the inaugural season in 1996 until 2007. The club moved into Dick’s Sporting Goods Park during the 2007 season. Colorado’s kit and badge underwent change during the move from Mile High to the new stadium. The badge used for the first six season had a representation of a rushing river and the team wore a green home kit. Colorado switched to a soccer ball badge and black and blue kit color until the team’s stadium move. In 2007, the team moved to a soccer ball and mountain peak badge with burgundy and blue.
Prominent American players wore the Rapids kit through the club’s early years. U.S. men’s national team captain Marcelo Balboa played for the team in its first six seasons. National team midfielder Pablo Mastroeni was part of the club from 2002 to 2013 and coached the Rapids from 2014 to 2017. Members of the 2014 World Cup team that advanced to the Round of 16 wore the Rapids kit including goalkeeper Tim Howard and midfielder Jermaine Jones.
