The New England Revolution are close to getting a permanent home, according to Jorge Mas, who’s the co-owner of Miami’s MLS team.
On Monday, Mas and other members of the Beckham Group spoke to local media about their proposed stadium at Melresse Golf Course. Mas noted that their search is a priority for the league, along with the New England Revolution and New York City FC. It’s here that Mas subtly mentioned that the Revs have found a location.

“One of the only franchises left to build a soccer specific stadium is the New England Revolution, which is owned by Bob Kraft of the New England Patriots,” Mas said. “They’re building a facility, I think, right near, next to Boston Garden, so they’re in.”
The comment is brief, but it could mean that news is coming. When MLSSoccer.com’s Jonathan Sigal asked the Revs organization for a comment, they declined.

Notably not a denial. #MLS https://t.co/CXjk7Nr1Y5
National writer Charlie Boehm was able to provide a bit more insight, saying that he has recently heard rumors that an official Revs stadium announcement could be on the horizon.
Not sure of the extent of Mas' knowledge, but rumors of an imminent Revs stadium announcement are definitely making the rounds this week. https://t.co/jPIRQK3uBa— Charles Boehm (@cboehm) July 17, 2018
The Bent Musket has not heard back from the Revs regarding their request for an interview.
