Even though the park is designed specifically as a soccer facility, Dicks Sporting Goods Park events also include concerts as well as special entertainment happenings such as fireworks shows. Funded by Major League Soccer's Colorado Rapids franchise, the facility opened in 2007 as the third home field for the team. Over the years since then, the venue has been used for other sporting events and musical shows. Dicks Sporting Goods Park seating ranges from over 18,000 up to 27,000 spectators depending upon the type of event being hosted. The stadium itself is at the heart of a complex of fields used by various youth soccer teams, college and professional lacrosse squads and local rugby teams.
