The Switchbacks are gearing up for their fifth season in the USL Championship but this one will feel a little different. After the affiliation with the Colorado Rapids was made official this offseason, it was announced that the Switchbacks would be receiving four players on loan from the Rapids for the entirety of the 2019 season.
But there will also be some familiar faces on the Switchbacks in 2019. Rony Argueta and Mike Seth were both a part of the Switchbacks playoff teams in 2015 and 2016, and they have returned to the Switchbacks this year. Jordan Burt has been with the Switchbacks since the teams inaugural season in 2015 and he's gearing up for his fifth season with the club. And Jordan Schweitzer is returning for his second season in Colorado Springs after becoming a fan favorite last year.
For preseason, the Switchbacks are playing an array of different teams across Colorado and Utah throughout February into the beginning of March. The club will also be participating in the Wasatch Winter Cup February 18th and 21st at Zions Bank Real Academy in Herriman, Utah for the first-ever all-USL Championship preseason tournament.
The Switchbacks will kick off their 2019 USL Championship season on the road to the Los Angeles Galaxy II on March 9th. The home opener is on March 16th as they host the Sacramento Republic FC at 6:00 PM at Weidner Field for a St. Paddy's Day celebration with fireworks and 16oz $1 beer for the first 30 minutes after gates open at 5:00 PM. Tickets start at just $12 and are available HERE. For the price of a Switchbacks ticket and 2-5 beers, it is cheaper than buying 2-5 beers at a bar or restaurant.
