OPPONENT PREVIEW 

Founded in 1996, the Colorado Rapids were one of the original ten MLS franchises. The Rapids won the MLS Cup in 2010 and reached the MLS Cup in 1997. They also hosted the 2015 AT&T MLS All-Star Game this past July.
During the offseason and preseason, the Colorado Rapids have been busy with a variety of player transfers, moves and acquisitions. Notably, the club picked up striker and designated player Shkëlzen Gashi, who was acquired last week from FC Basel (Swiss First Division). In their most recent preseason roster move, the Colorado Rapids acquired striker Conor Doyle in a trade with D.C. United on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Doyle appeared in 56 MLS matche (19 starts) with D.C. United, scoring four goals and adding an assist.

This will be the first meeting between Sacramento Republic FC and the Rapids. However, Republic FC previously faced the Colorado Rapids Reserves in the inaugural match at Bonney Field on June 20, 2013 where Sacramento Republic FC captured a 4-3 win.
