    Franchino and Kamler Nominated for MLS Year-End Awards
    Revs Team Wins MLS Fair Play Award For Best Disciplinary Record

    Foxborough, MA - New England Revolution announces today that Revs players
    Joe Franchino and Brian Kamler are nominees for two of Major League Soccer's
    prestigious year-end awards. The Revolution also announces that the team won
    this season's Team Fair Play Award for having the best disciplinary record
    of any team in MLS this season.

    Revolution left back and team captain Joe Franchino is one of five finalists
    for the MLS 2003 Pepsi Goal of the Year. The goal for which Franchino is
    nominated came in the seventh minute of overtime against the Columbus Crew
    on September 28 at Gillette Stadium. With the score tied 2-2, Franchino
    curled a left-footed free kick from just outside the box into the far top
    corner of the net, giving the Revs a dramatic 3-2 golden goal victory.

    Left-sided midfielder Brian Kamler is one of ten players nominated for the
    U.S. Soccer Foundation Humanitarian of the Year. Kamler was named the
    Revolution's 2003 U.S. Soccer Foundation Humanitarian of the Year for the
    second straight year for his extensive work in local communities, dedicating
    time to several hospital appearances for children, as well as school groups
    and camps and is now a finalist for the league-wide award.

    The Revolution was honored by the league as a team for earning the 2003 MLS
    Team Fair Play Award. In 30 regular season games, the Revs earned just five
    red cards and were shown a league-low 45 yellow cards.
    The league will honor the winners in all of its award categories at the 2003
    MLS Gala Awards Ceremony on the eve of MLS Cup 2003 on Saturday, November 22
    at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California. The League's championship
    game, MLS Cup 2003, will be played on Sunday, November 23 at The Home Depot
    Center (3:30 p.m. ET - live on ABC Sports).
