Tim Hinchey Extends Deal as Colorado Rapids President

By Community | May 13, 2014

Tim Hinchey, generic the president of Major League Soccer side Colorado Rapids, has extended his contract for a further three years, according to reports.

He told MLSsoccer.com: “I’m grateful to ownership and [owners] Kroenke Sports and Entertainment. I want to be here. I think we as a group, as a club, have worked really hard. I feel very humbled to have an opportunity to continue the mission that we have.”

During his tenure, the Rapids have nearly tripled their season ticket base from 1,900 to nearly 5,300 in less than four years, and Hinchey clinched arguably his biggest coup earlier this month when the club signed Ciao Telecom as the club’s first-ever jersey sponsor.

With Hinchey’s new contract set to expire after the 2016 season, he has one primary goal in mind over the two-and-a-half year window: fill the stands at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on a more consistent basis.

“We need to continue to be involved in the community, but we also need to educate the community that we’re a terrific asset, and that there’s a great opportunity for people to come enjoy our product here,” Hinchey said.

“I think for us, if we can get this to a position to where we’ve got 16 or 17,000 fans every night, that’s absolutely my next goal. And we need to work at it.”
