New England Revolution Tickets
The New England Revolution, nicknamed the Revs, is a professional soccer club based in Foxborough, Massachusetts that participates in Major League Soccer. Even though the club is based in Foxborough, the club represents all of New England. The club is owned by Robert Kraft, who also owns the New England Patriots of the NFL. The name "Revolution" refers to the New England region's involvement in the American Revolution. The team colors are navy blue and red.
The Revs currently play their home matches at Gillette Stadium. The Revs hold the distinction of being the only MLS team to have every game in its history televised. Currently, the games are called by Revolution Director of Communications Brad Feldman and analyst Greg Lalas (former Tampa Bay Mutiny defender and younger brother of Los Angeles Galaxy general manager Alexi Lalas)
The Revs have never won a major trophy in MLS in their 10 year history, being one of three teams in MLS that date back further than 2005 to have not won one of the three major titles in MLS (MLS Cup, US Open Cup, and the MLS Supporter's Shield). They came close four times, reaching the US Open Cup final in 2001 and the MLS Cup finals in 2002, 2005, and 2006; coincidentally losing their US Open Cup final, and the MLS Cup in 2002 and 2005, to the Los Angeles Galaxy, and losing the MLS Cup in 2006, to the Galaxy's former rival, the relocated Houston Dynamo.
Their 2002 MLS Cup appearance granted them a spot in the 2003 CONCACAF Champions Cup, but lost their first matchup 5:3 on aggregate after playing two games on the road to LD Alajuelense. The Revolution again faced LD Alajuelense of Costa Rica in the home and away 2006 CONCACAF Champions' Cup. The "home" game was played February 22, 2006 in Bermuda despite some fans feeling that playing at Gillette Stadium in the adverse conditons of winter in New England could have been advantageous. The Revs failed to advance, as they drew 0–0 in Bermuda and lost 0–1 in Costa Rica.
New England had the chance to win their first MLS championship, in MLS Cup 2006, against the Houston Dynamo, but ultimately suffered the same fate as their two previous attempts in 2002 and 2005; the Revs, after Taylor Twellman scored in the second overtime, allowed a game-tying header, from Dynamo Brian Ching, that sent the game to sudden death penalty kicks, where New England lost, 4-3, and 2-1 in the game overall. It was the Revolution's 3rd defeat in the MLS Cup in the last 5 years.
Their main rivals are largely considered to be the New York Red Bulls, although in recent years the Revolution have built rivalries with fellow Eastern Conference teams DC United and Chicago Fire. The club's supporter's clubs are called the Midnight Riders and Rev Army. The name 'Midnight Riders' is in honor of the famous rides of Paul Revere and William Dawes, who announced the departure of British troops from Boston to Concord at the beginning of the American Revolution. The 'Riders' occupy the north stand of the stadium, which they have nicknamed "The Fort".
