New England Revolution History

The New England Revolution was founded in 1996 and is one of the ten charter soccer clubs that started the Major League Soccer (MLS) league. Their home stadium is the Gillette Stadium, located in Foxborough, Massachusetts, just 21 miles southwest of downtown Boston. Gillette Stadium stands out with its impressive capacity of over 65,000 seats, resembling the likes of the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. It is worth noting that the stadium also serves as the home to the New England Patriots NFL team, explaining the need for such a substantial seating capacity.

The Revolution is owned by Robert Kraft, who also owns the New England Patriots along with his son, Jonathan Kraft. The team's name, Revolution, was chosen to commemorate the American Revolution, which began in 1775 in Boston, Massachusetts, ultimately leading to the founding of the United States of America. The Revolution has participated in five MLS Cup finals, in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2014, which is the highest number of appearances for any MLS club. Despite their impressive track record, the team has yet to claim an MLS Cup victory, adding to the anticipation and hunger for success among the players and fans alike.
