Colorado Rapids to host 2015 MLS All-Star Game

Sporting Goods Park


Major League Soccer’s All-Star game is returning to the Denver area.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber is expected to announce this week the 2015 All-Star game will be held at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park outside of Denver, according to The Denver Post.

The announcement, set for Wednesday at Denver Union Station, will include Colorado Rapids coach Pablo Mastroeni, Colorado’s Lt. Gov. Joseph Garcia and other area leaders.

No date has been set for the 2015 All-Star Game, but they are typically scheduled for July or August.

This marks the second time the Rapids will host, having hosted the 2007 All-Star Game, when the MLS All-Stars beat Scottish club Celtic, 2-0.


What do you think of the Rapids hosting the All-Star Game again? Think that will be a good venue for the event?

    • at best it looks like a new (generic) high school football stadium before any customization has been completed. From all accounts it is a nice stadium, just doesn’t have any character.

      • It’s a decent stadium. Nothing particularly nice about it, but there’s not much to hate either (except the location). I went to a few games when I lived in Boulder, including that All-Star game versus Celtic, and “lacking character” is truly spot on. When I was going to games there in 2007-2008 it felt strangely unfinished. I hope for the Rapids’ sake that ownership puts in some upgrades over the next few years. And also that they go back to those killer maroon & powder blue kits.

    • The stadium design is average at best. It doesn’t hold in sound well, so you can barely hear the supporters section, or anyone for that matter. It is also out in the middle of nowhere, instead of downtown next to the Pepsi Center, like it should have been. But our owner is a tightwad, so this what you get. On the plus side, the actual playing surface is one of the best in the league, parking is free, the tickets are cheap, and the beer selection is much better than other MLS stadiums I have been to.

  1. How many years away is MLS from an East vs. West format? Does Garber need to expand to 30 teams before they drop the big club opponent format?

    • I will one up you…. how many years until MLS drops this game. There is not one all star game out there that is worth watching. Be a trailblazer in the US market and drop the all star game completely.
