Arena, Bilello talk about Revs stadium, new logo, and more

Here are six interesting things said at Saturday’s Members Meeting.

On Saturday, the New England Revolution held their annual Season Member Welcome Event. I wasn’t in attendance, but photographer Kari Heistad (as well as others) provided a play-by-play on Twitter. Here are six insights that I found most interesting:

The club is looking into updating their logo

This has been known for a while now but I haven’t had the chance to offer my opinion. Personally I’d be fine with a new logo. The Revs flag was probably one of the best logos in 1996, but I don’t think it looks great on merchandise in 2020. The name should stay, but an updated, classy logo would be good for the brand.

Please don’t tell Jake I said this.

The Revs’ second preseason tournament will be streamed

I’m all about hot takes during preseason, which is why I’m excited that we’ll be able to watch the Portland tournament. It would be great if the games in LA are also streamed, but for now I’m happy that we won’t have to wait until opening day to judge Adam Buksa, Alex Buttner, and the rest of the team.

Revs players will stay in Foxboro

Upon arriving in New England, Bruce Arena sent several promising young players out on loan to various USL Championship teams. That practice will apparently be over now that the Revs have a USL League One team.

The stadium is a factor in deciding which games will appear on national TV

The Revs don’t have any nationally broadcasted games this year. None. A major reason for this is their current stadium situation. Add this to the list of reasons why the Revs need to find a new home.

The Krafts are working on a Soccer Specific Stadium

Have you heard this one before? You better believe it. Still, I like hearing Arena’s thoughts on the saga. He does appear to be confident that stadium news is on the horizon.

Camara’s roster spot will go unfilled for now

This last one comes from the guys at Six States One Pod, which you should subscribe to if you haven’t already. The Revs lost a potential starter when center back Samba Camara’s P-1 Visa was denied. I imagine that Bruce and Company will look to add a center back (or defensive midfielder) at some point this season. It looks like that move will happen during the summer transfer window.
