SANDY, Utah – A loyal and loving member of the Real Salt Lake fanbase passed away in a tragic car accident. The club plans to honor her this Saturday during the game.

Kylie, who sat in section 27 of Rio Tinto Stadium, will be honored in the 27th minute of the upcoming playoff game against the Portland Timbers.

Fans will stand in silence while raising their scarves. The proceedings will begin the second the clock strikes 27:00.

Details of the accident have not been shared.

Real Salt Lake will host the Portland Timbers on Saturday with kick-off scheduled for 8 p.m. RSL are the three seed while the Timbers are the sixth seed.

The winner of this match will advance to the Western Conference Semi-finals and take on the winner of FC Dallas and Seattle Sounders.

Fortunately, RSL is on the other side of the bracket from Western Conference powerhouse Los Angeles Football Club. RSL will likely play LAFC in the Conference Finals – if they are able to make it that far.

The upcoming game against Portland is significant for a number of reasons. If RSL losses, Nick Rimando’s career is over, Kyle Beckerman’s future is undecided and it likely signifies the end to Freddy Juarez. Regardless, their will be a number of changes occurring at the club this offseason.
