Folks, this is not a drill. The New England Revolution have won the Supporters’ Shield for the first time in club history as the Seattle Sounders fell to Sporting KC on Saturday afternoon. This truly has been a season to remember for Revolution fans.
Currently sitting at 69 points, the Revs were the first MLS club to clinch a playoff birth and will now have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. That means if New England is lucky enough to make it to the MLS Cup Finals, the trophy has to go through Gillette Stadium.
On top of the already historic season, the Revolution will be returning to continental play as they have secured a 2022 CONCACAF Champions League spot by being the best team in the Eastern Conference.
The Shield will join the likes of the 2007 U.S. Open Cup and the 2008 SuperLiga (RIP) in New England’s trophy cabinet.
But Revolution fans won’t be satisfied with just a Shield, now fans can firmly set their eyes on New England winning its first MLS Cup in club history.
