After a long 125 days without Revolution soccer, the boys in blue prepare to return to action on Thursday July 9th in the “MLS is Back” tournament.
Prior to the stoppage of the 2020 MLS Regular season, the Revs suffered a crushing 2-1 defeat to the Montreal Impact on opening day and walked away with a 1-1 draw against the Chicago Fire in their home opener.
The Revolution will reignite the Maple Syrup Derby on July 9th, as they look to get revenge on the Impact after falling short during their season opener on February 29th.
During the MLS is Back tournament, the Revolution will rely on their Designated Player core of Carles Gil, Adam Buksa, and Gustavo Bou to make an impact. Unfortunately, injury prevented Gil from playing during the first two games of the season. During those two games, Bou and Buksa combined for a total of 1 goal and 1 assist. Now that Carles Gil is back and healthy, for the first time in Revolution history, all three Designated Players should be available.
Thursday’s game against the Montreal is scheduled to kickoff at 8:00 PM EST. The game will be televised nationally in Spanish on Univision along with an English livestream on Twitter. If you are unable to watch it, the game will also be aired on local radio stations. Tune into 98.5 The Sports Hub or SiriusXM FC Channel 157.
