Revolution announce Academy roster, Residency Program ahead of 2019-20 season

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution Academy has unveiled its roster for 2019-20 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season. In total, 70 players from the New England region were selected for the Revolution Academy squads, which range from the Under-14 through the Under-19 age groups. All four developmental teams will open play this weekend, with the U-15s, U-17s, and U-19s hosting the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, Aug. 31 in Lancaster, Mass., while the U-14s take on Boston Bolts on Saturday, Aug. 31 in Newton, Mass. The complete 2019-20 Revolution Academy schedule is available HERE.

The 2019-20 season also marks the formal launch of the Revolution Academy’s Residency Program. The Revolution will have players living full-time in a local residence that was recently acquired by the club. Players will be living full-time under the supervision of Academy staff. This new program will see players from New England and other parts of the country benefit from the club’s fully-funded Academy program by providing them with a living space in close proximity to Gillette Stadium.

The Revolution Academy is coming off the 2018-19 season which saw seven different players receive international call ups to U.S. Soccer Youth National Team camps and squads, as well as multiple first team training opportunities. Two Academy alumni signed Homegrown contracts with the first team, beginning with Nicolas Firmino in December 2018, followed by forward Justin Rennicks in January 2019. In addition, it marked the third consecutive year the U-19s have qualified for a USSDA playoff spot and the team’s second Northeast Division title in three years. This season, the Academy will return 57players, while welcoming in 13 new players; all four age groups consist of a combination of both new and returning players.

“We’re thrilled to begin yet another chapter in our Academy’s history,” Revolution Director of Youth Development and Under-15 Head Coach Bryan Scales said. “We’re very excited for the upcoming season and to track the progress and success of our players across each age group.”

Entering its 12th season, the Revolution Academy is the only fully-funded, professional youth development program in New England, and competes in the prestigious U.S. Soccer Development Academy as well as the MLS Generation adidas Cup. Qualified and talented players are accepted into the program without regard to their financial situation. All players’ needs and expenses related to soccer activities – training, facilities, equipment, uniforms, travel associated with competitions – are provided by the Revolution at no cost to the players or their families.

The complete Revolution Academy roster, including coaching staffs for each age group, is below.
