A new venue could soon pop up in the Boston area, according to the writer from Sports Illustrated.

Grant Wahl thinks a soccer-specific stadium may soon arrive in the greater Boston area.

In his “Mailbag” segment on SI.com, Wahl said he believes Revolution ownership is “finally getting in gear” and “may not be too far away from an announcement on a stadium.”

A question about the new venue originated from Twitter user @SeanMalvey, who asked Wahl if Revolution supporters could influence the creation of a soccer-specific stadium. Wahl responded with optimism:

How can #NERevs supporters in Boston enable change and get a true soccer-specific stadium? And can @MLS do anything? @SeanMalvey

From what I hear, the Krafts are finally getting in gear and we may not be too far away from an announcement on a stadium in the Boston area. It always helps to have support from local politicians, though, so you might want to register your thoughts on a stadium with them.

Over the years, Revolution fans have grown callused to such rumors, as progress with a soccer-specific stadium has—at least on the surface—stagnated. The last update regarding the proposed facility came from Boston Globe writer Shirley Leung, who reported that talks of a Dorchester-based stadium were “all but dead.”

Wahl’s report renews hope for Revolution supporters. Could he be onto something?

Thanks to Twitter fan @gpk3gpk for spotting—and sharing—Wahl’s segment.
