FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – In most leagues around the world a 440-mile roundtrip journey would be – by some distance – the farthest a team would travel for an away match all season.
In MLS, it’s a local derby.
Saturday night’s meeting between the New England Revolution and New York Red Bulls will have that feel, in large part because the Revs will have a significant section of traveling support at Red Bull Arena. Approximately 500 fans will make the trek down I-95 on Saturday morning on busses provided by the Revolution, who are also providing tickets to the match, a perk of being a Revolution Season Member.
