SALT LAKE CITY — Now’s your chance to bring home some not-so-valuable memorabilia from the former Rio Tinto Stadium. They may be used, and they may not be comfortable, but you can bring home your very own chair or chairs from the stadium – which was renamed the America First Field back in September.

“It’s a unique piece of the team that you get to be able to take home and be able to tell stories and relive memories,” Real Salt Lake Director of Community Relations Kyle Schroeder said.

He said getting rid of the red foldable chairs will make room for the standing section in the nine, 10, and 11 sections.

Schroeder says the fans in La Barra Real have been asking for the stadium to remove the chairs and instead have safe standing.

He said the $10 donations will go to a good cause. The Vice President of Communication and Public Relations John Genna, hopes to raise funds and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) after being diagnosed with the disease in early October.

The chairs are available during business hours, but Schroeder says there weren’t many left when he left work Thursday night.
