Boston Cannons Moving to Gillette Stadium, Shouldn't Affect Revs

New, 1 comment

Gillette Stadium will now host the Boston Cannons lacrosse team, a move that should have no bearing on the Revolution.

Gillette Stadium is getting a new occupant as the Boston Cannons lacrosse team is moving to Foxboro for their 2015 season, according the Boston Herald.

Since their formation in 2001, the Cannons have called a number of venues home. The team played in Cawley Memorial Stadium in Lowell, MA for their first three seasons before moving to Boston University’s Nickerson Field in 2004. In 2007, the Cannons relocated to Harvard. With Harvard redoing their turf field, the Cannons made the decision to play at Gillette Stadium this season.

Gillette Stadium will now house four teams, including MLS’s New England Revolution, the NFL’s New England Patriots and NCAA’s UMass Minutemen.

The Cannons’ home games will generally take place on the same weekend as Revolution home games. The Revs will typically play on Saturday with the Cannons taking the field on Sunday.

While the turf of Gillette Stadium will be used more often, Revolution fans shouldn’t have to worry about any additional lines during soccer games, according to club president Brian Bilello.
