These sides met just about one month ago at Yankee Stadium, where New York City FC claimed a 2-0 win to snap the Revolution's three-game unbeaten run in the series. The Revs maintain a strong home record against NYCFC, though, going 2-0-1 in their last three showdowns at Gillette Stadium and boasting a 6-2-4 record overall in Foxborough since NYCFC entered the league as an expansion team in 2015.

An early red card left the Revolution shorthanded for the vast majority of last weekend's 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Union, a result which sees New England remain at the bottom of the Eastern Conference heading into Saturday's action. Ryan Spaulding will be suspended for the meeting with NYCFC as a result of that red card, but there is good news as left back DeJuan Jones returned from a lengthy injury absence with a 40-minute appearance off the bench against Philadelphia. It marked Jones' first appearance since suffering a hamstring injury on April 13 against New York City FC.

NYCFC will arrive in Foxborough one of the hottest teams in MLS, having won six of their last seven games (6-1-0) to climb all the way to third in the East. They had a most impressive run last week, winning three games in an eight-day span, including a pair of road contests at Toronto FC and the Philadelphia Union. While goals had been an issue for Nick Cushing's side early in the season - scoring just five times in their first seven games - they've found their shooting boots on their current run, scoring multiple goals in all six of their wins.

After playing back-to-back home games, the Revs will then briefly return to the road for a trip to Nashville SC (June 1) before coming back to Gillette Stadium for meetings with the New York Red Bulls (June 8) and Vancouver Whitecaps (June 15).

Overall Record vs. New York City FC: 10-9-7

Saturday night the Revolution will be wearing the "Boston Tea Party" kit, which will serve as the club's primary uniform for the 2024 and 2025 MLS seasons.

Inspired by Boston's proud history of positive defiance, the kit commemorates the recent 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party in December 1773. The shirt design is highlighted by red and white vertical waves on the jersey's front, which represent the ripples in the Boston Harbor made by East India Training Company's tea creates as the American revolutionaries emptied 45 tons of tea into the water.

The navy jersey features red shoulders with three white stripes, a throwback to earlier Revolution jerseys, paired with navy shorts and navy socks, featuring red and white striping on top.
