Revolution supporters debuted their latest tifo before Sunday's game against the LA Galaxy.

New England Revolution supporters continue to up their tifo game with their latest offering coming before Sunday's match against the LA Galaxy. The Avengers-inspired tifo referenced the 2014 MLS Cup Final where the Galaxy edged out the Revolution 2-1. A number of players were artistically featured, along with the word "REVENGERS."

Sunday's tifo was the latest in a series produced by fans. In 2014, there were displays that referenced Toto's "Africa," the movie Jaws and HBO's Game of Thrones. The first of 2015 was released before the New York Red Bulls game and featured a matador saying, "Ole."

The commitment of Revolution fans has long been questioned. However, rising attendance numbers and creative tifos have gone a long way in changing perceptions. Heading into Sunday's game, the Revs averaged 16,245 fans through seven games, better than six other teams.
