Real Salt Lake’s recent success has helped them build a fan base all over the state and as a result, you’ll more than likely experience a sellout when attending a match at Rio Tinto Stadium. The sold out crowd is one of the things that makes attending an RSL match such a great experience as everyone in the crowd will be chanting throughout the game to show their support for the Royals. The supporter groups get especially loud, so if you’re looking to be a part of the most diehard sections, make sure to join one of them.
It’s not just the roar of the crowd that you’ll enjoy when attending an RSL match. Rio Tinto Stadium features plenty to see and do before kickoff. Not only will you be able to take part in Carnival Real where you can play games and see live music, the team shop and Utah Soccer Hall of Fame are also must-sees as well.
Lastly, despite being a relatively new team, Real Salt Lake already has some budding traditions including the Goal Gong. The Goal Gong is rung after every RSL goal and pumps up everyone in the stadium.
A Real Salt Lake match offers an excellent experience for anyone looking to take in a Major League Soccer game and is quickly becoming a Utah entertainment staple.
