Centennial 38

Habitat: The group has its strongholds in Section 108 on the east side of the stadium and Section 117 in the south stands.

Visual Identification: C38 members are usually dressed head to toe in whatever burgundy garb they can find. The more obscure the player jersey, the better (Scott Palguta is a coveted find). Whether in a March snowstorm or in 95-degree July heat, C38 members can almost always be found with their supporters' scarves.

Defining Characteristics: In 2013, three large Rapids supporters' groups merged to form C38: Bulldog Supporters' Group, Pid Army, and Class VI.

Rapids supporters aren't shy about criticizing their team and about doing so with a dry sense of humor. Nevertheless, they embody the “Rapids' Til I Die” mantra, supporting their team through both MLS Cup campaigns and bottom-of-the-table finishes.

Songs and Calls: "Mountain Roads," a variation of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads"
