The New England Revolution will conclude preseason by facing Columbus Crew SC on Saturday, according team staff writer and online host Jeff Lemieux. The game is scheduled to begin at 9 PM EST.
Saturday will mark the first time this preseason that the Revs face an Eastern Conference foe. The team squared off against the San Jose Earthquakes, FC Dallas and Vancouver Whitecaps during their first trip to Arizona. While in Tucson, the Revs met Real Salt Lake, Sporting KC and the Houston Dynamo. Their overall record this preseason is 2-2-2.
Crew SC are coming off a 2-2 tie against Swope Park Rangers of the USL. The team recorded draws in their previous two Desert Diamond Cup games against Real Salt Lake and Sporting KC.
The Revs and Crew SC will see each other three times during the regular season. Crew will travel to Gillette Stadium for fixtures on Jul. 9 and Aug. 20. The Revolution's sole trip to Mapfire Stadium will occur on Sept. 25.
