The New England Revolution’s final game of the regular season was played at Gillette Stadium in front of an impressive crowd of 32,766. This attendance number is the third highest for a stand-alone Revolution game at Gillette Stadium, which opened in 2002. Furthermore, the crowd was the second largest for a regular season game hosted by any Eastern Conference team this year.
The Revs will make their triumphant return home on Sunday when they play the Columbus Crew in the second leg of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, a series in which they already hold a 4-2 lead. The gathering isn’t likely to match the magnitude of the regular season finale, but it should be sizeable.
Revolution President Brian Bilello predicted an attendance of 20,000 on Twitter with the caveat that ticket sales are increasing. The demand is so much, in fact, that the Revs have decided to roll back tarps to allow more fans to sit in the Fort. Bilello noted that fans should buy their Fort tickets ahead of time since the section will likely be sold out before the game begins.
