On Saturday, October 23rd, members of the Switchbacks staff headed up to Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Denver to cheer on the Switchbacks Unified Team in the second match of their inaugural season.
Following the Colorado Rapids match against the Portland Timbers, the Rapids Unified Team and the Switchbacks Unified Team met on the pitch for the second time this season.
After a 5-4 loss against Rapids Unified back in September, Switchbacks Unified was hoping for an away win, but unfortunately fell in a 4-3 loss. With their season wrapping up, the Switchbacks Unified Team now look to the future of Unified within the USL Championship. As the first, and currently only, Unified team in the USL Championship, the Switchbacks Unified Team are looking to be role models for other USL teams and to encourage them to develop Unified Teams across the league. Their goal is to be able to create a full season schedule for the team to travel to other states and play other Unified Teams across the country and across the league.
