Situated near the base of the Rocky Mountains and sitting elevation over 5,200 ft above sea level (1,600 m), Dicks Sporting Goods Park has played host to several famous snow games.

For their first eleven seasons, the Rapids played at Mile High Stadium (1996–2000) and Invesco Field at Mile High
Invesco Field at Mile High
(2001–2006). In 2004, the club and city announced a $130 million project that would include youth soccer fields, retail development, and a new Commerce City civic center.[11] The total cost of stadium construction was $64.5 million. Commerce City voters agreed to $65 million bond for infrastructure improvements to support the stadium[12]. Construction began at the site, close to Denver's former Stapleton International Airport
Stapleton International Airport
and bordered on the north and east by the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, to the south by 56th Avenue, and to the west by Quebec Street, in fall 2005.[13] In November 2006, Dick's Sporting Goods signed a 20-year deal for naming rights.[14] The stadium opened with an intrasquad scrimmage open only to Commerce City residents and season ticket holders. The first official match was played against D.C. United

on April 7, 2007, with the Rapids winning, 2-1. Herculez Gomez

as the MLS All-Stars defeated Scotland's Celtic FC. The Rapids played their first playoff game at DSG Park on October 28, 2010; a 1–0 victory over the Columbus Crew. Two weeks later, a crowd of 17,779 was in attendance as the Rapids defeated the San Jose Earthquakes en route to their first-ever MLS Cup.[16] The stadium is owned by Commerce City and operated by Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE) who also own the Colorado

won the game 1–0, but the protest was denied. The game has already been dubbed in football lore as "SnowClásico" for the conditions.[citation needed] Music events The venue grounds hosted the Mile High Music Festival annually from 2008–10. The first Mile High Music Festival saw attendance at approximately 40,000 people each day over the course of two days. By utilizing the open soccer fields surrounding the stadium and additional stages throughout the complex, the complex's total capactity was able to greatly exceed what the stadium could hold alone. The rock band Phish
has established a three-night residency at the venue over Labor Day Weekend, starting in 2011 and returning in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. They have continued their appreciation and love for Dicks, with lead singer Trey Anastasio saying "We all love Dicks!"[6]. [17]
