“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing”
Class VI is a seating area in the new Dick’s Sporting Goods Park where fans come to watch the Rapids. We sit in Section 108, and while we don’t stand all game – we are quite vocal and passionate.
As we’ve grown, we’ve added new benefits to being a part of Class VI. As always we travel to support our Rapids to different venues each season. We host a fantastic tailgate at each game open to anyone who wants to stop by. We also get together for away game viewing parties to cheer on our boys! We’ve grown into a very nice social club that has a great time with each other – and meeting new fantastic people every week.
We really hope you will join us.
Join over 200 fellow Class VIers and sit in the best section at DSG Park. Except for the Terraces, there’s no more passionate Rapids cheering in DSG Park
And here’s a little club history…
Why is it Called Class VI?
It’s a white water rafting term! Different sections are rapids are classified by difficult. Class I is like floating on lazy river at an amusement park. Class VI is like taking a barrel over Niagara Falls!
We formed in 2005 awaiting the arrival of DSG Park. At the end of the season, the group was thirty strong. at the end of 2006 we were up to seventy five. As word spread we crossed the century mark in 2007 and have been steadily growing ever since. Those first thirty were the visionaries!! No we’re spreading by word of mouth. We look forward to the day that 108 is packed full of passionate Rapids supporters chanting, singing, and living and dying as the ninety ticks away.
One Man’s Confession. One Man’s Quest.
How Class VI was started.
Mark Bodmer, Grand Poobah, Class VI Seating Club & Supporters Group
I was a passionate fan, surrounded by a sea of conformist parade-rainers. Was I truly all alone?
It was time to find out. And thus began my quest to discover like-minded fans of the beautiful game. Here in Colorado. At Rapids games.
I wanted to be loud, angry, yelling, happy, taunting, celebrating, and more. From my seat. I wanted to watch the game without some young kid bopping me with Rapids programs and giveaways. I wanted a beer.
But mostly, I wanted to do all of this collectively with other fans sharing the same passion. And I didn’t want the confused stares from the surrounding audience who wanted nothing more than to sit quietly. They didn’t want any conflict, they didn’t want any “displays” or anything improper like that. That’s okay, as far as it goes, but it’s not for me.
Me? A big bear of a man, shouting, supporting, carrying on, talking (a bit of) trash, discussing soccer with my friends, and watching the game intently surrounded by passion.
I needed support. I hoped it was out there. And thus Class VI was established.
No fees, no meetings, no obligations. Just a chance to worry about the footy.
