RECENT FORM VS. SPORTING KANSAS CITY
The Revs have won five of their past seven regular-season meetings with Sporting Kansas City dating back to the 2014 season, including last April's 1-0 home victory courtesy of Teal Bunbury's game winner. In fact, home-field advantage has played a large role in these sides' recent history, as the hosts have taken the full three points in each of the last four meetings.
Adding to the intrigue, there will be several familiar faces on the opposition as New England head to Kansas City this weekend, with two former Revs players who were traded in 2018, Krisztián Németh and Kelyn Rowe, now playing for Sporting KC.
As new and old faces square off in an exciting battle, this will be a showdown that you don't want to miss.
Overall Record vs. Kansas City: 18-25-11

SHOW YOUR COLORS
Break out your blue kits!
The Revs will be donning their primary kits, which take inspiration from the Boston Minutemen, a North American Soccer League club that played in Foxboro's Schaefer Stadium in 1976.
While the primary kit typically features white shorts, the Revs will wear navy blue shorts on Saturday to contrast with Sporting KC.
