Saturday afternoon was supposed to be another home date for the New England Revolution as they were scheduled to host the Montreal Impact at Gillette Stadium. We wish we could all be together, but right now the most important thing we can do is stay home.
With that in mind, there’s plenty of live Revolution content to keep you occupied while relaxing on the couch this weekend, from lots of FIFA 20 action to re-living a classic match from 2006.
Here’s what’s lined up for this weekend’s slate:
