Sunday’s Revs-Union match postponed

Hurricane Irene forces the re-scheduling of the match to Wednesday, Sept. 7 in Philadelphia

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Major League Soccer today announced that the New England Revolution’s match against the Philadelphia Union in Chester, Pa., originally scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 28, has been re-scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 7 because of concerns surrounding Hurricane Irene’s anticipated course up the East Coast.

Kickoff for the re-scheduled game will be 8 p.m., and the match will be televised on Comcast SportsNet and nationally in Spanish on Galavision.

“With the safety of our fans and clubs top of mind, and thanks to the cooperation of our clubs and broadcast partners, Major League Soccer has rescheduled two games that were originally set for this weekend,” said Nelson Rodriguez, Executive Vice President of Competition and Game Operations. “We expect that Hurricane Irene will likely cause hazardous travel and unplayable conditions throughout the Northeast. We appreciate our fans’ understanding of these decisions and the media’s assistance in communicating the message.”
