SEASON MEMBER ROAD TRIP
There will be a Foxborough faction at Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as there are approximately 700 Revolution supporters making the trip down to The Bronx for this huge Eastern Conference battle.
As a Season Member, there is an opportunity to travel to select away matches with the club providing round-trip transportation from Gillette Stadium along with a match ticket. Having supporters on-site provides the Revs players with a massive boost, and they are looking forward to playing in front of them on the road once again on Saturday after approximately 500 fans made the trip to New Jersey for the Revs' 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls last month.
KICK CHILDHOOD CANCER MONTH
The Revs will continue 'Kick Childhood Cancer Month' in conjunction with MLS WORKS when they visit Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon. In recognition of September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, there will be special gold-themed match-day elements, including a gold match ball, gold nets, gold corner flags, and Kick Childhood Cancer procession tops.
The Revolution's official 'Kick Childhood Cancer' match will be on September 21 against Real Salt Lake.
SHOW YOUR COLORS
Break out your new kit, “The Colonial!"
The Revs will be sporting their sleek secondary kits, which take inspiration from uniforms the colonial generals wore in the Revolutionary War.
These jerseys sport a white front with light blue sides and sleeves, and are tied together with navy blue trim. The light blue sides continue to cover the back of the jersey, topped near the neckline with the classic image of the Flag of New England.
