Last Saturday the 18th, the Switchbacks FC Unified Team took to the field for their first match in the 2022 season, as they took on the Colorado Rapids Unified Team for the I-25 Cup. Nearly 500 fans stuck around to watch the match, which occurred immediately following the Switchbacks FC match against Indy Eleven. The Switchbacks started strong, and both teams were eager to get some points up on the board.
After a quick rain delay, in which the storm blew through just as fast as it left, the teams started playing in earnest. After two twenty minute halves, the final score was 0-1 Switchbacks vs. Rapids. The Unified Team will have a chance for redemption in September, when they travel up to Denver and take on the Rapids Unified Team at Dicks Sporting Goods Park.
