It's official: 1,150 New England Revolution fans will invade Red Bull Arena on Sunday, November 23.
On Tuesday, November 11, Revolution President Brian Bilello announced that the club would provide free bus transportation to the first leg of the Eastern Conference Final for the first 850 fans that purchased tickets. The overwhelming interest led to Bilello upping the number to 1,150.
The final seats were sold on Saturday with a countdown being provided by members of the Midnight Riders and The Rebellion. Riders President Fran Harrington was the one who had the honor of announcing the sellout:
...and then there were none. See you in New Jersey... all 1150 of you. #NeRevs— Fran Harrington (@franharrington) November 15, 2014
Bilello responded to the dedication shown by Revolution fans with the following tweet:
Just a wow moment from our #NERevs fans selling out the NY trip in less than a week. Can't wait to see you all down there. #proud— Brian Bilello (@RevsPrez) November 15, 2014
