The New England Revolution and MLS
The New England Revolution have been New England's premier soccer team since it was formed in 1995 and is one of Major League Soccer's original teams. The Revs were a perennial MLS Cup contender in the first decade of the 21st century, reaching four MLS Cup finals and winning the 2007 US Open Cup and 2008 SuperLiga championships.
The Revs first title - the 2007 US Open Cup
The team was created in the wake of the 1994 World Cup, for which the old Foxboro Stadium was a host venue. MLS launched in 1996 with 10 teams. Some 18 months earlier, a ticket sale drive challenged dozens of commuities around the nation to sell as many "season ticket deposits" as possible to prove the feasibility of a possible future team. Official numbers were not released, but New England evidently convinced MLS that the region should host one of the founding teams.
While the team struggled on-field in its early years, it was initally a hit with the region's soccer fans, posting some of MLS's best attendance numbers in the first seasons.
Ironically, that situation reversed in recent years. As the team became one of the top teams in the league, it began posting disappointing attendance numbers even after moving into Gillette Stadium in 2002. Owned by Robert Kraft, who also owns the NFL's New England Patriots, the Revs have often been perceived as a red-headed step child in the Kraft sports empire.
In this part of the site, we'll post our stories covering all regionally relevant happenings involving the Revs and MLS, offering insight into the premier US soccer league. Scroll down for the archives.
