On Monday, MLS fans were finally able to see who their team would be facing throughout the 2019 MLS season. As a die-hard New England Revolution fan, I’m excited for every match. That said, here are five specific matches I can’t wait for.
1.) Saturday March 2nd, 2019: New England Revolution @ F.C. Dallas
The main reason why I am so excited to see this match is that it will be the first time we see the Revolution in regular season action this year. This game will give fans a chance to see how the off-season moves have effected the club. This will serve as a glimpse of what’s to come.
2.) Saturday March 9th, 2019: Columbus Crew SC @ New England Revolution
The Revolution will host their first game of the season against Columbus Crew SC. The Revs will look to avenge the loss and draw they received from Columbus in the 2018 season. The Revolution weren’t great at home in 2018, as they went 8-4-5. This game will set the tone for the new season.
3.) Sunday March 24th, 2019: F.C. Cincinnati @ New England Revolution
This will be an interesting match to see as the Revolution play the latest MLS expansion team F.C. Cincinnati for the first time this season. It’s always interesting to see new teams join the league. How will Cincinnati measure up against the Revs? We shall see.
4.) Saturday April 27th, 2019: New England Revolution @ Sporting Kansas City
The Revolution travel to Children’s Mercy Park to play Sporting Kansas City on April 27th. This is the first time the Revs will encounter former midfielder Kelyn Rowe after the club traded him to Colorado in exchange for Edgar Castillo. It will be interesting to see how the Revolution fair against one of their former players.
5.) Sunday October 6th, 2019: New England Revolution @ Atlanta United
Ah, good old Decision Day, the most pivotal day of the MLS season. A Decision Day result may be necessary for the Revolution to make the Audi MLS Playoffs, which is a tall ask since they will have to travel to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA to take on the reigning MLS Cup champions.
