There will be no Revolution Pregame Live show on Decision Day, but your favorite duo will be back with a live show before the Eastern Conference Semifinals, on a date to be announced following the end of the regular season.
RECENT FORM VS. INTER MIAMI CF
Sunday's game, sponsored by UnitedHealthcare, will be just the second-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.
The first meeting between these teams took place in July at DRV PNK Stadium, where New England steamrolled Miami en route to a 5-0 win. The Revs’ attack exploded in the first half with four goals, as the team finished with braces from both Arnór Traustason and Adam Buksa, as well as an additional tally from Teal Bunbury.
Coincidentally, those three points against Miami in July first pushed the Revolution into the lead in the Supporters' Shield race, and the team never turned back. For three months, New England has maintained and advanced their lead to claim the No. 1 spot this season as the Supporters' Shield winners.
These two teams will now meet one final time to close out the regular season.
Miami is coming off a 3-1 loss to New York City FC, which mathematically eliminated them from playoff contention. Miami has gone 2-8-0 in their last 10 matches, but in their most recent four games have put away 10 goals.
Meanwhile, New England is on a 10-game unbeaten run (7-0-3), one shy of equaling the club’s longest all-time streak. The Revs’ latest triumph - a 1-0 win over the Colorado Rapids at home - set a new MLS single-season points record with 73. New England aims to up the record to 76 points on Sunday over Inter Miami.
The Revs locked up the Supporters' Shield title in October, but Sunday’s match will be the first time the team will officially lift the league trophy – which will become the most historic moment in club history. You won’t want to miss this iconic moment for the club.
Overall Record vs. Miami: 1-0-0
Home Record vs. Miami: 0-0-0
Last Meeting at DRV PNK Stadium: Revs 5, Miami 0 (July 21, 2021)
Last Meeting at Gillette Stadium: N/A

2021 SUPPORTERS' SHIELD WINNERS
The New England Revolution have officially secured the club’s first Supporters’ Shield title, and the team’s first-ever league trophy! With one game remaining in the team’s remarkable campaign, the Revolution are within touching distance of even more MLS history. The Revs’ 73 points are the most any team has ever secured in a season in MLS history, but New England has an opportunity to up the ante with another three points on Sunday against Miami to set an even higher league record of 76 points in a single campaign. In addition, New England’s next victory would break the modern-era record for wins in a season (22) if the Revs can claim their 23rd win of the year on Sunday.
Sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena won his league-high fourth Supporters’ Shield with the 2021 Revolution squad, and is also now tied with Sigi Schmid for the most regular season victories in MLS history (240). Arena said that the team’s job is not done yet though with all of the records broken this season, as the squad still wants to finish the regular season the right way and win an MLS Cup.
As Supporters’ Shield champions, the Revolution would host the 2021 MLS Cup final at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, Dec. 11, should the team advance to the championship match.
You can come celebrate with the Revs as they officially lift the Supporters' Shield for the first time on Decision Day, when New England hosts Inter Miami CF on Sunday, November 7 (3:30 p.m. ET - TV38, myRITV, CoziTV, 98.5 The Sports Hub HD2, Nossa Radio USA).
