One of the great features of having season tickets is the ability to several times a year trade in any unused tickets for tickets to select matches. This year RSL have announced 5 dates that will serve as their 2011 exchange dates:
- 5/7 - CHIVAS USA
- 6/4 - Vancouver Whitecaps
- 7/30 - Columbus Crew
- 9/17 - Sporting Kansas City
- 9/28 - Chicago Fire
Wow a big match against Chivas USA as an exchange date as the 2005 expansion teams will lock up in the return of Robin Fraser to Rio Tinto.
A chance to see USMNT defenders Jay DeMerit and expansion side Vancouver on June 4th, should be a great match to attend as a couple of former RSL players Atiba Harris and Jay Nolly are also on the Whitecaps roster.
Then a big match against the Crew in July, you know they will be looking to improve on their 0-4-0 record at "El Castillo", the Crew have been outscored 12-2 in those 4 matches.
New look Sporting KC will show up in the middle of September, KC is the last team to beat RSL at home and hopefully we will be keeping the streak in tact through this season as well.
The final exchange date will the Chicago Fire, if we know one thing from the 2010 version of the Fire they will likely have a couple more DP's by the time they make their way to Salt Lake City.
