FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution Academy opened its 2021 MLS NEXT Spring Season over the weekend, with the Under-19s, Under-17s, Under-15s, and Under-14s travelling to Newton, Mass. to face Boston Bolts. In addition, multiple Revolution II players and Academy alumni saw MLS preseason action during the first team’s training camp in Los Angeles, Calif.

On Saturday, April 10, all four teams will host Oakwood SC and will then host FC Westchester on Sunday, April 11. All four matches will be played at Gillette Stadium. Meanwhile, Revolution II’s preseason preparations continue ahead of the 28-game 2021 USL League One season, which kicks off Saturday, April 10.
