REVOLUTION PREGAME LIVE
Elizabeth Pehota and Jeff Lemieux will break down all the storylines and starting XIs on Revolution Pregame Live, available live at 6:45 p.m. ET ahead of Wednesday evening's clash at Inter Miami on the Revolution’s official Facebook and YouTube channels, as well as www.revolutionsoccer.net.
RECENT FORM VS. INTER MIAMI CF
This will be the first-ever match between the New England Revolution and Inter Miami CF since the Floridian expansion side began its first campaign in the league in 2020.
These two sides bookend the Eastern Conference standings, as the Revs continue their reign at No. 1 and Inter Miami occupies last place with a 2-7-2 record. However, Inter Miami has three games in hand on New England after their match at the New York Red Bulls this past weekend was postponed due to inclement weather. Prior to the postponement, Miami suffered five straight losses with just one goal scored in that span.
Meanwhile, the Revs are 8-3-3 through 14 games. New England added a massive 1-0 win at Atlanta United on Saturday, making club history by securing their first-ever victory at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and recording their fourth clean sheet of the 2021 season.
To sweeten the pot as these squads square off for the first time, the Revs (27 points) will look to stake further claim atop the East and will have a chance to climb to the top of the league on Wednesday night by leapfrogging the Seattle Sounders (29 points). This is a must-see battle that you won’t want to miss.
Overall record vs. Miami: 0-0-0
Away record vs. Miami: 0-0-0

AMERICANA PREMATCH JERSEYS
The Revs will be sporting their 'Americana' prematch jerseys during warmups before each game throughout the month of July. Taking inspiration from the iconic USA 1994 World Cup shirt, the 2021 ‘Americana’ prematch jerseys aim to help all the U.S. sides commemorate Independence Day on July 4.
Fans can also purchase their 'Americana' prematch jerseys at the Gillette Stadium ProShop. These festive prematch jerseys are already sold out online at MLSstore.com.
SHOW YOUR COLORS
On Wednesday the Revs will be sporting "The Original," New England's primary kit designed as a nod to the club's original 1996 look. The sleek white stripe across the jersey echoes the angled stripes across the '96 kit, while the blue top is complemented by red shorts similar to those worn by the Revolution's first-ever squad.
