Real Salt Lake will kick off its ninth-annual Real Week celebration this Saturday, beginning a full week of events leading up to the club’s March 16 home opener against Rocky Mountain Cup Presented by Mark Miller Subaru rivals Colorado Rapids.

The highlight of this year’s Real Week will come on Wednesday, when the full Real Salt Lake team – including Owner Dell Loy Hansen, President Bill Manning, Head Coach Jason Kreis, General Manager Garth Lagerwey and every player – will make a public appearance at Scheels in Sandy from 2-3 p.m. Scheels will auction off several autographed RSL kits and a few lucky fans will walk away from the event with an autographed RSL mini ball.

Additionally, Kreis will speak at the event and answer questions submitted by fans on Twitter. Fans interested in submitting questions should use #RSLAMAA for their question to be considered. Kreis will also appear live on ESPN 700’s “The Bill & Hans Show,” which will broadcast live from the event. Lagerwey and several players will also appear on “The Bill & Hans Show” during the event.
