The New England Revolution annually host Salute to Heroes around days of significance such as Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day and September 11. Through a partnership with USO New England, the Revolution distribute tickets to local military, police, fire and first responders as a token of appreciation for keeping America safe on a daily basis. In addition to tickets, select personnel are invited to take part in activities around the event including practice visits, prematch field passes, flag ceremonies as well as meet-and-greets. The New England Revolution Charitable Foundation is committed to supporting our local heroes and recognizing their incredible bravery and dedication to our community.
The 2018 Salute to Heroes match was on Armed Forced Day on Saturday, May 19 versus the Columbus Crew.
