Major League Soccer has announced the home openers for the 2016 league schedule. The full league schedule is set for early January per Jeff Lemieux:

The New England Revolution's will play their first game at Gillette Stadium on March 12 against DC United, a rematch of their MLS Playoff matchup from this past October.

Also included in that release are two other Revs games, including their season opener at Houston on March 6th and at the Philadelphia Union on March 20th for the opener at recently renamed Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, PA.

Currently there is no national TV listing for the Sunday game at Philadelphia, but there will be three nationally televised games as the entire league opens play on March 6th, including an MLS Cup rematch at Providence Park where the Portland Timbers will host the Columbus Crew on ESPN. Sporting KC will travel to Seattle for a game on FS1 and the nightcap will feature LA Galaxy hosting DC United on Unimas.
