There are a lot of things that we cruise before we go on a vacation: How tighten is a track to a hotel or Airbnb? How tighten is it to a airport? How tighten is it to downtown? What else can we do here? And so on. we am not implying that those are a only questions, though they are a initial ones.
Going on an divided outing is a outrageous burst in anyone’s fandom career. we wrote about this final year, and it seems like several people took a recommendation to heart. We had some good showings in Colorado, Portland, LA, and even had a few good eggs in other places. So, let’s give it another shot. These are a 5 games we should try to make in 2018.
Disclaimer: There is positively no bad outing to make this season. Every singular one is a good one. These 5 stood out for opposite reasons and that’s given they were picked, though all divided games are combined equal.
5. Seattle Sounders FC vs. Real Salt Lake: Saturday, May 26
I would routinely suggest staying divided from Seattle. Their fans are annoying, their representation is turf, we frequency do good opposite them adult there, and ever given my favorite food place there closed, we only don’t even kind of wish to make a trip. But, this is a good one for families for several reasons. It comes right around Memorial Day weekend, and only before a central start of summer (when many people will expected be seeking for time off, creation it some-more competitive). It’s a discerning and pleasing drive, and they only mislaid a MLS Cup. So, we know, remind them of that.
4. Columbus Crew SC vs. Real Salt Lake: Saturday, Jun 30
RSL Soapbox organisation recently published an essay in support of a Crew, and so many people have been outspoken about it, though we consider we all know that a League’s overpower on a emanate interconnected with MLS Commissioner Don Garber’s comments about it during a MLS Cup, is a certain pointer of a essay on a wall. This will expected be a final possibility to see a Columbus Crew play in their stadium, and it competence be value it to make a trip.
3. Los Angeles FC vs. Real Salt Lake: Wednesday, Aug 15
I will always suggest creation a outing to LA. Always. Especially for families, given their fans flattering many keep to themselves, it’s a bound divided from Disneyland and Universal Studios, and it’s always a fun game. This year, we will opt out of recommending a Galaxy compare and Jun for this one in August. One of a reasons for that is given this will be right around a time LAFC’s track opens, and that thing looks Gorgeous! I’d adore to see it adult close, and we am certain it’d be some-more fun to do so with 100+ other fans, like final year. This diversion is pound before many schools start again, creation it tough on teachers like me, though good on families with kids. One final hoorah before shutting a summer doors. We’ll expected be on a heels of a new Summer Transfer signing, and certainly battling these guys for a playoff position. Who knows, we might even run into a integrate of guys we know.
2. Portland Timbers vs. Real Salt Lake: Sunday, Oct 21st
Decision Day. Portland. Blue Star Donuts. Cannon Beach. Multnomah Falls. Providence Park expansion. Nicest fans on earth. 100+ of a possess fans pulling a group to feat and a good Playoff position. Go to Portland, adore Portland, welcome Portland. These kinds of games are what a pleasing diversion is all about. These are a moments that we live for. we know it’s Sunday, though this is right after UEA Break for a kids and Fall Break for many college students. Head adult Thursday or Friday (whenever a initial day off is) and soak adult a Pacific Northwest and Cascadia. Note: This design was taken in Vancouver, another outing we should try to make.
1. FC Dallas vs. Real Salt Lake: Saturday, Mar 3
There is zero worse to me than a thought of going to Texas. I’m contemptible to those of we from Texas, though literally zero sounds worse than being anywhere in that state. The steam alone is adequate to make me wish to contend no, a ass-kicking they gave us final year creates me run for a hills. But. This is a initial diversion of a season, and it’s March. If there is ever a time to go to Texas, this is it. It comes right before Spring Break for many colleges, though it doesn’t matter given nobody will wish to stay longer than a weekend. And given many of us are going by off-season withdrawals, it might be value going.
Colorado Rapids vs. Real Salt Lake: Saturday, Aug 25
We play them twice before this, so it’d be extraordinary to call that Rocky Mountain Cup in a faces of their 20 fans.
San Jose Earthquakes vs. Real Salt Lake: Saturday, Jul 28
I desired San Jose, and we would adore to go back. It’s a discerning weekend outing in a center of dual RSL home games creation it a good few weeks in a dog days of summer.
Atlanta United FC vs. Real Salt Lake: Saturday, Sep 22
I hatred Atlanta and their conceited fans. That track though… Mmm.
Sporting Kansas City vs. Real Salt Lake: Sunday, Sep 30th
Minnesota United FC vs. Real Salt Lake: Saturday, Jul 14
The Twin Cities, Prince, Mall of America. This would make for a really fun weekend getaway.
