The New England Revolution has signed 12 athletes representing Special Olympics Massachusetts ahead of their game on Saturday night. The Revolution Unified Team will face the New York City FC Unified Team at Gillette Stadium as the second game of a doubleheader.
The signees were introduced to their new teammates on Friday during practice before taking part in a signing ceremony. Here, the athletes met with club president Brian Biliello and head coach Jay Heaps before putting pen to paper. Per club policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed. Heaps will now look to prepare the Revs' newest players for their Saturday night clash.
Those interested in watching the Revolution's inaugural Special Olympics Unified Match are encouraged to move to the Fort or sections in the northwest corner once the Revs-NYC game has concluded as the game will take place on the northern half of the field. The match is open to the public and fans are encouraged to cheer on the two sides.
