The New England Revolution will host Chelsea FC in a charity game on Wednesday, May 15. Proceeds for the game, which is set to kickoff at 8:00 pm, will go towards ending antisemitism and all hate crimes. Tickets for the event go on sale to the general public on Friday, Mar. 15.
The event was created by club owners Roman Abramovich and Robert Kraft. Parties that will benefit include the World Jewish Congress, the Tree of Life synagogue, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Holocaust Educational Trust. Abramovich and Kraft will each donate $1 million to support the cause.
The game comes during a busy stretch for the Revs, who are away at the Philadelphia Union on May 4 and the Chicago Fire on May 8 before returning home to face the San Jose Earthquakes on May 11. They will host Chelsea midweek before heading to Montreal for a game on May 17.
Select groups, including Season Members, will be able to buy tickets starting on Mar. 11. Tickets become available to the general public on Mar. 15.
