RAISE YOUR COLORS

#RaiseYourColors to support the New England Revolution from home on social media during their postseason run.

The playoff campaign #RaiseYourColors carries over from 2019 and it originates from the chant "Mama, Mama," sung by the Revolution's loyal supporters in The Fort. The supporters mean so much to Revolution players, coaches and staff, and the organization chose this line from the meaningful song to help unify us all, as we push forward in the Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs together.

RECENT FORM VS. PHILADELPHIA UNION

The New England Revolution have advanced to Round One of the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs courtesy of a dramatic 2-1 win over the Montreal Impact in the Play-In Round on Friday night. The No. 8 seed Revs will now visit the Supporters' Shield winners, the Philadelphia Union, in a do-or-die match to determine which side will continue on to vie for the MLS Cup title.

New England and Philadelphia have already met five times this year, the Revs going 0-4-1 in a quartet of regular-season battles plus a showdown at the MLS is Back Tournament. Now, these two sides will square off for a sixth and final time in the postseason. As head coach Bruce Arena said, "there are no secrets between these two teams."

These sides met as recently as Decision Day, when the Revs were shut out at the Union, 2-0. That loss forced the Revs to take a hard look in the mirror, and after New England's galvanizing 2-1 win over Montreal in the Play-In Round, goalkeeper Matt Turner said that "when you get a win like that, it rallies the troops." He said he believes "everybody is feeling pretty good heading into Tuesday."

This will be the first-ever meeting between New England and Philadelphia in the MLS Cup Playoffs. The winner of this game will advance to the Conference Semi-Finals to battle No. 4 Orlando City SC, while the losing side's 2020 season will come to an end. With everything on the line, this will be a winner-takes-all, must-watch battle.

Overall Record vs. Philadelphia: 6-17-6
Road Record vs. Philadelphia: 3-11-2

Last Meeting at Gillette Stadium: Union 2, Revs 1 (October 19, 2020)

SHOW YOUR COLORS

Break out “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.
