Happy Summer Junior Revs!
We kicked off the month of June with an incredible start, celebrating our annual Pride Night on June 10. It was an electrifying evening that ended with a fantastic 3-1 victory against Inter Miami CF! Our success continued with a memorable 3-1 win against Orlando City SC as part of our Juneteenth celebrations. Our Unified Match took place following the match in which our Unified Team faced the Chicago Fire FC Unified Team. We closed out the month on a high note with a 2-1 win against Toronto FC. In addition to the thrilling matches, the New England Revolution and Special Olympics Massachusetts came together to host Bowl for a Goal. This premier annual fundraising event was a huge success, raising a record-breaking amount of approximately $125,000 to support Special Olympics Massachusetts' Unified Sports program.
As we look ahead to July, we have some exciting home matches lined up so be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming matches! On July 12, we will face off against Atlanta United FC and just three days later, on July 15, we will take on D.C. United! But that's not all! The New England Revolution will be participating in the Leagues Cup 2023 group stage, and we have the privilege of hosting Club Atlético de San Luis on Wednesday, July 26. This highly anticipated Concacaf competition will determine three clubs qualifying for the 2024 Concacaf Champions League. You won’t want to miss it!
We're also proud to announce that DeJuan Jones has been called up to the U.S. National Team. This is his third international call-up, a testament to his exceptional skills on the field. Additionally, Revolution Goalkeeper Djordje Petrović was selected to join Serbia for their UEFA Euro Qualifier, while defender Christian Makoun represented Venezuela in a pair of friendlies. Makoun had a successful outing, with Venezuela beating both Honduras and Guatemala 1-0.
In other news, we are excited to introduce Peyton Miller, a talented 15-year-old from Connecticut, as the New England Revolution's youngest MLS Homegrown Player signing. Peyton will join our MLS roster in 2024 as a Homegrown Player on a four-year contract with an additional one-year club option. We can't wait to see his skills on display!
As we look ahead, we want to give you a sneak peek of what's in store for August. We have two exciting events planned for August 30 as we host New York Red Bulls: Junior Revs Night and Mascot Night! This evening promises to be full of fun and excitement, and we can't wait to share the details with you soon. That's all for now, Revs fans!
