Report: Revs, Krafts Asked To Save Breakers at 11th Hour

Before the Breakers folded, it seems the Krafts were asked about their interest in the NWSL team.

SOCCER: MAY 27 NWSL - Boston Breakers at Portland Thorns FC

Yesterday as information starting coming out in regards to the folding of the Boston Breakers, it was mentioned by two different people that the league or Breakers had reached out to the New England Revolution and the Krafts as a possible solution for ownership and operation in 2018.

In addition to this, Portland Thorns and Timbers owner Merritt Paulson also said in a now deleted tweet that the Revs were the only option to keep the Breakers afloat for the 2018 season. Paulson also mentioned the lack of facilities and other problems the Breakers faced for the upcoming season.

The Bent Musket reached out to the Revolution about the above quotes and the Breakers situation, and the team declined to comment at this time.

Currently it seems like the NWSL is expecting to operate a nine-team league for the 2018 season. Our Stephanie Yang has an update on the Breakers facilities situation and there are reports of a last ditch effort from an ownership group to operate the Breakers this season.

Stay tuned to The Bent Musket and and to Stephanie Yang in particular as we’ll be updating the Breakers situation as it continues to unfold.
