New England Revolution To Host LA Galaxy in MLS Cup Rematch This Month

After 11 games, the New England Revolution have proven they are one of the top teams in Major League Soccer once again. Although the Revolution have never won MLS Cup, they have reached the Finals in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007 and last season in 2014. The team is in position once again to make a Finals run and perhaps finally capture the elusive championship trophy.

With a 5-2-4 record, New England has earned 19 points, which is good for second-best in the Eastern Conference. They trail conference-leading D.C. United (6-2-3) by two points.

In the month of May, New England has yet to lose. After a 2-1 victory against the New York Red Bulls on May 2, the Revolution have had two consecutive draws against Orlando City SC and Toronto FC. They still have a number of games remaining this month, which will go a long way towards determining their spot in the standings heading into June.

The most expensive game of the three remaining is their match on the last day of the month against the Los Angeles Galaxy. On May 31, the Revolution host the Galaxy at Gillette Stadium with an average ticket price of $63.09 on the secondary market. The get-in price directly from the team is just $25 comparatively. Their second most expensive game is probably the team’s most important game, as they face D.C. United on May 23, the team that is the only club ahead of them in the Eastern Conference. At Gillette Stadium, the average ticket price is $44 with a get-in price of $20 against D.C.

Lastly, the Revolution have a game this Wednesday, May 20 against Sporting Kansas City on the road. The average ticket price is $41 with a get-in price of $22 to get into Sporting Park.

The MLS regular season is 34 games, so the Revolution are just a touch less than one-third of the way finished. New England is tied for the most goals scored in the conference, sharing that mark with Columbus Crew SC with 15.

The Revolution were one of the ten original MLS franchises to compete in the league’s inaugural season.
