Fan Appreciation Night is one of the many theme nights the Rising will have hosted this season, this one is a way to thank fans for their support with giveaways.

According the Phoenix Rising website, it says that there is a “special gate giveaway” when entering the stadium.

As for the soccer game that will take place, the Rising have an eight-game unbeaten streak on the line when they play New Mexico United.

In their last three games, Phoenix have tied 1-1 in each of them.

Thanks to a USL Goal-of-the-Year candidate, Rising midfielder Emil Cuello rescued a point against Orange County SC on Sept. 30 when he shot from long range to even up the score at 1 in the 85th minute.

With the last result, the Rising are fourth place in the USL Western Conference and equal on points with Orange County with 48.

Things are heating up as the final playoff seedings are up for grabs because right behind both of those clubs is the Colorado Springs Switchbacks who have 47 points.

As for New Mexico, they are 10th in the Western Conference as they are coming off of a 2-0 win against Louisville City SC on Sept. 30.

Getting a win is crucial for the Rising on Saturday as they will have a seeding decider next week against Colorado Springs Oct. 14 as the last two games of the regular season will determine who Phoenix will play in the playoffs.
