The New England Revolution ushered in a new era on Monday, as they broke ground on a new training center that will be used by the first team and Academy.
The facility, which will cost $35 million dollars, will span 68 acres. It will feature 42,000 square feet of buildings, as well as three new full-size fields—two natural grass and one turf. The grass fields are slated to be finished in spring 2019.
“This state-of-the-art training facility will allow us to develop our players to their full potential while at the same time providing a platform for our young players to train alongside our first team and develop into the stars of the future,” said Investors/Operators Robert and Jonathan Kraft.
When complete, the Revolution Training Center is expected to be one of the best in Major League Soccer. Besides the fields, the facility will include fitness and medical centers, a team dining and lounge space, and office space for the club’s technical staff and front office.
“This facility is one of the cornerstones in the future of our Club,” The Krafts explained. “We look forward to watching Mike Burns, Brad Friedel, and the soccer staff take full advantage of all it will offer each level of the organization.”
