On Friday, MLS Commissioner Don Garber gave his State of the League address. As has become the norm, the New England Revolution’s stadium search was mentioned.
Long-time soccer scribe Michael Lewis asked what original clubs have to do to draw attendance numbers equal to prominent newbies like Atlanta United and LAFC. Though the question didn’t specifically mention the Revs, Garber’s answer did.
“I have great confidence in all of our clubs figuring out what they need to do to try to drive the success that they might have had in previous years,” Garber remarked. “If you look at almost all of those cases, there are individual situations that those teams are working on.”
“We’re working on a new stadium in Boston. We’re working on new facilities in other markets.”
Later, Garber was asked about New York City FC’s stadium situation. Garber again expressed optimism, saying that he believes New York and Boston will one day play host to some of the league’s most important events.
