FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution and New York Red Bulls have launched a ground-breaking season ticketing program for fans who purchase season tickets in teams’ supporters sections.
The Revolution’s 2015 Fort Season Ticket Package will include a ticket to every regular-season Revolution match at Gillette Stadium, as well as a ticket and bus transportation to the Revs’ away match against the Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena. New York will provide the same benefits to their fans, including a ticket to the Red Bulls’ match against the Revs at Gillette Stadium in their own special season ticket program.
This is believed to be the first season ticket package in professional sports to include a ticket to an away game, plus transportation.
“Supporters traveling to away games is such an important part of soccer culture and we believe this is an innovative approach for our club to help our supporters organize and deliver a great road experience for a large number of our fans,” Revolution president Brian Bilello said.
“This partnership with the Red Bulls to formalize a traveling group of supporters for our matches is a key step in nurturing and growing that experience. The Revolution has always had tremendous fan support on the road against the Red Bulls, and we’re looking forward to seeing even more fans involved – by proving tickets and helping them get to the game and back as a group – next year when we go to Red Bull Arena.”
Revolution fans who purchase the 2015 Fort Season Ticket Package – with seats in sections 141, 142 or 143 - will receive an 18-game ticket package for matches at Gillette Stadium, as well as one game ticket and round-trip bus transportation to the Revolution’s match against the Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena next season.
There will only be 750 of the Revolution’s special Fort Season Ticket Packages. Each package will cost $243 and also includes free designated parking, exclusive season ticket holder events with Revs players and coaches and insider access to Gillette Stadium concerts and international soccer events.
“We’re excited that the Red Bull trip will be easier than ever for fans to take part in,” Midnight Riders president Fran Harrington said. “Travelling to away games and being at the other team’s stadium while cheering on the Revs is an experience unlike anything else. It's support on an entirely different level.”
“There is nothing like an away supporters section in American sports,” Rebellion executive director Brendan Schimmel said. “United in an electric crowd to support the Revs, road trips are where fans transform into supporters.”
The Midnight Riders and the Rebellion are the two official supporters groups of the New England Revolution.
The 2015 Fort Season Ticket will be available beginning August 14. Current season ticket holders renewing season tickets and who wish to purchase the 2015 Fort Season Ticket Package this year will have a two-day pre-sale on August 14 and 15. All season tickets sales will be open to the general public beginning August 16. For more ticketing information, please visit revolutionsoccer.net/tickets.
