Dick's Sporting Goods Park

6000 Victory Way Commerce City, CO 80022-4203 | Northeast Denver Suburbs | 303-727-3500

Location Description:

Dick's Sporting Goods Park is the home field of the Colorado Rapids soccer team, built in Commerce City in 2006 and featuring 24 fully lit soccer fields surrounding the stadium itself. This makes the park an ideal venue for events other than soccer games; it was the home of the Mile High Music Festival during the fest's run, hosting such acts as Tool, Widespread Panic, Tom Petty and the Fray on stages set up around the complex. Phish has played a weekend blowout or two at the park, and Dick's also hosts kids' intermural competitions, Fourth of July celebrations – even some Major League Soccer championship bouts. With its immense capacity, state-of-the-art facilities and scheduling flexible enough to invite everything from major-league soccer to major-league musical talent, Dick's is a welcome addition to the sporting scene in this cowtown.
