With the threat of bad weather for tonight’s season opener against defending MLS Cup champion Columbus, Real Salt Lake is offering fans its own version of season ticket insurance. Any ticket that is scanned at the Rio Tinto Stadium gate tonight automatically becomes a voucher for RSL’s home game against Houston on Aug. 15.
“What we are calling ‘Ticket Insurance’ option is a fun way to take the weather out of the equation,” said RSL president Bill Manning. “We extend to the general public an option normally available only to our loyal season ticket holders. Our team is excited to kick off the season, and we want our fans to have every opportunity to make Rio Tinto Stadium as loud and electric as it was last November 15 during the Western Conference Final.”
