FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution legend Joe-Max Moore (1996-99, 2003-04) will be the honorary captain at tomorrow’s 2010 home opener against Toronto FC as part of an on-going celebration of the team’s 15th season. Moore will also preside over the game’s coin flip, and attend a special meet and greet for some of the team’s original season ticket holders while he is in Foxborough.
Moore, who was a member of the original Revolution team in 1996, retired from Major League Soccer in 2005 as New England’s all-time leading scorer with 41 goals. He was a three-time member of U.S. World Cup teams (1994, 1998 and 2002), amassing 100 career caps with the U.S. National Team. He still ranks fourth in goal scoring in U.S. National Team history with 24 goals.
After his first stint with the Revs, Moore played for Everton of the English Premier League before returning to the Revolution for the start of the 2003 season. He retired as one of the club’s most beloved players and still ranks among the team’s all-time leaders in most offensive categories.
The Revolution (1-1-0, 3 pts.) opens its home schedule this weekend when the team hosts Toronto FC on Saturday, April 10. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m., and Comcast SportsNet will broadcast the game live on a secondary channel.
