Wood was selected with the first overall pick in Stage 2 of the 2022 MLS Re-Entry draft after the Revolution traded the ninth overall pick in the Re-Entry draft and $50,000 in GAM to D.C. United in exchange for the first pick.
Wood joins New England after spending two seasons with Real Salt Lake. During his stint with RSL, Wood notched five goals over thirty-one appearances.
Before joining Real Salt Lake, Wood spent eleven years playing in Germany.

When talking about the addition of Bobby Wood, Arena said, “We are excited to welcome Bobby Wood to the New England Revolution. I’m very familiar with Bobby, having coached him on the international stage with the United States, and I’m very confident that he’ll be an excellent addition to our attack here in New England.”
