SANDY, Utah (Monday, April 26, 2010) – After finally wrapping up a stretch of four of five games on the road to start its 2010 regular season slate, Real Salt Lake (1-3-1, 4 pts.) will begin a similar stretch at home this Saturday, May 1, when the Claret-and-Cobalt will welcome Toronto FC (2-3-0, 6 pts.) to Sandy on U.S. Bank “Kids Day” for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff. The first match in a three-game homestand at Rio Tinto Stadium can be followed live via RSL’s official radio partners: KALL 700 Sports (live coverage from Rio Tinto Stadium begins with the America First Credit Union Pre-match Report at 6:00 p.m.), ESPN Deportes 1600-AM, and La Magia 106.1-FM.
