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. ORLANDO CITY SC

The New England Revolution have advanced to the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs courtesy of Tuesday’s 2-0 victory at the Supporters’ Shield winners, the Philadelphia Union. The No. 8 seed Revs not only knocked the league's top overall seed out of the postseason, but they also took them down at Subaru Park – where the Union had been perfect at home (9-0-0) this year.

New England will now travel to play at No. 4 Orlando City SC in a winner-takes-all game to determine which side will move on to the Eastern Conference Final as they continue on to fight for the MLS Cup title.

Orlando is coming off an emotional win in a penalty shootout, 6-5, over New York City FC following a 1-1 draw through regulation and extra time. However, en route to the Eastern Conference Semifinals both goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and right back Ruan will be suspended against the Revs after picking up red cards in Round One.

While this will be the 13th overall meeting between New England and Orlando City SC, it’s the first battle between these sides this year, and their first-ever meeting in the playoffs. The winner of this game will advance to the Eastern Conference Final, while the loser's season will come to an abrupt end.

The Revs are red-hot after taking down the No.1 seed in the East. Meanwhile, Orlando has something to prove with this being their first-ever opportunity to compete in the postseason. With everything on the line, this will be a do-or-die showdown that you won’t want to miss.

Overall Record vs. Orlando: 4-2-5
Away Record vs. Orlando: 0-2-4

Last meeting at Gillette Stadium: Revs 4, Orlando 1 (July 27, 2019)
Last meeting at Exploria Stadium: Revs 3, Orlando 3 (September 14, 2019)

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.

You can own "The Colonial" by visiting the Gillette Stadium Pro Shop, or clicking HERE.
