New Colorado Rapids jersey to include names of all their season ticket holders (video)

This is either very said (as in, only three season tickets sold this season) or very impressive (as in, very tiny names). And in fact it’s the latter, as the MLS Colorado Rapids will wear jerseys this coming season that include the names of all their season ticket holders on each shirt.

And not only that, but the fan-name jerseys will be their primary kit — while the Colorado state flag will be featured on the alternate jerseys.

“With our new alternate jerseys featuring the Colorado state flag, and our primary kits including the names of our season-ticket holders, we want to recognize our fans and our state for their passion and support over the last 18 years,” said Rapids president Tim Hinchey in a club statement.

Now when a Colorado player scores a goal, all of their season ticket holders score a goal. And when a player flops, those season ticket holders flop. That’s a lot of red cards.

It’s not the first time something like this has been done, by the way. Last year a Spanish La Liga soccer team printed the names of 25 of its fans inside the numerals of its players jerseys.
