This Saturday's home finale for the New England Revolution could be played in front of a record-setting crowd, according to club president Brian Bilello.

Currently, the largest crowd for a regular-season Revs game at Gillette Stadium took place on Aug. 20, 2008. That night, 39,256 spectators watched as the home team tied David Beckham and the LA Galaxy 2-2. It was an impressive crowd that has been unrivaled since.

That said, the Revs have a history of drawing big crowds to end the regular season. In 2014, 32,766 attended the Toronto FC game on Oct. 25. One year earlier, 26,458 watched New England beat Columbus 3-2. The 2012 finale brought in a crowd of 25,534 as the Revs downed the Fire 1-0.

Recent years have brought positive growth for the Revolution in terms of fans. Not only has attendance been on the rise, but the fans have upped their support by creating some of the most creative tifos the league has every seen..
