Rapids host Columbus Crew on Thursday night to start MLS Cup defense

RAPIDS HOST COLUMBUS CREW ON THURSDAY TO OPEN MLS CUP PLAYOFFS: The Colorado Rapids will host the Columbus Crew in a Wild Card match in the MLS Cup Playoffs this Thursday, October 27 at 8:00 p.m. MT at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Colorado secured a home match to open the MLS Cup Playoffs by earning a 2-1 win at Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday afternoon, and will face the Crew in the opening round of the playoffs for the second straight year, as Colorado topped Columbus on penalty kicks after a 2-2 aggregate draw in a home-and-home series in 2010. Tickets to the Rapids' first playoff match of their MLS Cup defense are on sale at www.ColoradoRapids.com and 303-825-GOAL.

POTENTIAL HOME PLAYOFF GAME ON SUNDAY: The Rapids open up against the Columbus Crew on Thursday, and with a win, would host another MLS Cup Playoff match on Sunday at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Colorado's potential opponent would be determined by the other Wild Card match, with the Rapids either taking on Sporting Kansas City (if the New York Red Bulls beat FC Dallas and the Rapids win) or the LA Galaxy (if Dallas beats New York and the Rapids win) in the Conference Semifinal.
