The home of the Colorado Rapids since 2007, Dick’s Sporting Goods Park is located near Denver’s old Stapleton International Airport as well as the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. The facility has hosted international matches and two World Cup qualification matches—one in 2008 (for the 2010 Cup) and one in 2013 (for the 2014 Cup), as well as rugby and lacrosse matches.
The facility has 24 full size and lit sports fields available for rent. Of those 24, 22 are grass while the remaining 2 are turf. The grass fields are only available for rent during April and November, depending on the weather. The turf fields are rentable year-round. The Rapids play on grass for all their home games.
The facility is a hub for Phish concerts, as the band usually plays three concerts there every year over Labor Day weekend. The DSG complex also hosts the Colorado Rapids Soccer Academy, as well as the Center for Excellence.
