RECENT FORM VS. VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC

For the third time in two weeks the Revs will be facing a Western Conference opponent that they haven't seen since 2019, as the last meeting between New England and Vancouver was in July 2019 when Gustavo Bou marked his MLS debut with a stunning volley. This will be just the Revolution's fifth-ever trip to British Columbia, where they're 1-1-2 all-time but 1-0-1 on their last two visits in 2016 and 2018.

The Whitecaps currently sit just below the playoff line in the Western Conference, tied on points with Seattle Sounders FC but with two more games played. Led by Canada National Team forward Lucas Cavallini, Vancouver is coming off an impressive 2-0 road win over FC Dallas this past weekend, while they're a solid 4-1-2 at BC Place, including 3-0-1 in their last four home games.

The Revs, meanwhile, are unbeaten in eight (4-0-4) following their come-from-behind, 2-1 win over Minnesota United FC on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium. Bou has led the charge in recent weeks with three goals and one assist in four games since returning from injury, and the Revs have found their form on the road, going 2-0-1 away from home during their current unbeaten run.

Sunday's game will officially mark the halfway point of the 2022 regular season schedule for both the Revs and Whitecaps, and it's an opportunity for both sides to keep things rolling heading into the month of July.

Overall Record vs. Whitecaps: 5-2-3

SHOW YOUR COLORS

The Revs will be sporting their new primary kit, “The Liberty.” The bespoke pattern is inspired by Boston’s Freedom Trail, a walking trail through the heart of Boston which passes 16 historical sites from the American Revolution – which gives a nod to the club name. This sleek new look will be paired with blue shorts, conveying a defiant, bold and strong look.

The club is reverting to blue shorts for the first time since 2013 to complement “The Liberty”. This is to convey a bold and strong one-color look, in-keeping with the New England’s defiant spirit while also enabling the new logo the chance to shine in its first time on a kit.
