SANDY, Utah (Sunday, September 19, 2010) – After starting off a stretch of six games in 18 days with a pair of wins last week, Real Salt Lake will only be busier this week when it travels to Panama midweek for CONCACAF Champions League play and returns home to continue a record run in League action on the weekend.
Prior to departing for Central America on Monday morning, Real Salt Lake players and coaches will be made available for media interviews at the Delta Airlines Ticket Counter in Terminal 2 of the Salt Lake City International Airport. Media are advised to arrive by 7:45 a.m. MT to ensure availability.
After arriving in Panama City on Monday, Real Salt Lake (2-1-0, 6 pts. in CCL play) will train on Tuesday in preparation for Wednesday’s critical Group A Matchweek 4 contest against Arabe Unido (1-2-0, 3 pts.). The contest will kickoff from Estadio Rommel Fernandez in the Panamanian capital at 6:00 p.m.. MT, and Fox Soccer Channel will air a tape-delay broadcast at 9:00 p.m. MT. Real Salt Lake is currently tied for the Group A lead with Cruz Azul on six points midway through the Group Stage of the regional competition, while Toronto FC and Arabe Unido both sit on three points.
It’s then another quick turnaround for Real Salt Lake (13-4-8, 47 pts. in MLS play), who will hustle back to Utah to prepare for the lone visit of the season to Sandy by the Claret-and-Cobalt’s Rocky Mountain Cup rival, the Colorado Rapids (10-7-7, 37 pts.). The Fox Soccer Channel “FSC on MLS” Game of the Week is set for an 8:00 p.m. MT kickoff at Rio Tinto Stadium, where RSL will look to carry on its record 23-match home undefeated streak in League play.
Tickets for Saturday’s Rocky Mountain Cup contest against the Rapids remain available and can be purchased online at www.RealSaltLake.com and www.RioTintoStadium.com, over the phone at 801-727-2700, and in person at the Rio Tinto Stadium Box Office from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on weekdays and on gamedays beginning at 10:00 a.m. MT. Both of this week’s contests will air on RSL’s official radio partners – ESPN 700 (English), ESPN Deportes 1600-AM and Homero 106.1-FM (Spanish) – and fans can also follow the club’s official Twitter feed, found at www.twitter.com/RealSaltLake, for live updates.
