New England Revolution Schedule in 2014
The New England Revolution are ready to take to the soccer field in 2014
and do battle with anyone that stands between them and the MLS Cup. The Revolution have a lot of quality players that are
looking to make their mark on Major League Soccer, and that should help catapult New England to the next level in 2014. The
Revolution play in the Eastern Conference, where you'll find some of the top teams in all of MLS. Last season the Revolution
finished with the third-best record in the Eastern Conference, which secured a spot in the postseason. However, despite giving
Sporting Kansas City a run in the Conference Semifinal round, they were knocked out of the playoffs by the eventual MLS Cup
Champions. This season the Revolution have hit the ground running, and are looking like a real contender to post the best
record in the Eastern Conference.
The Revolution have earned some big wins in 2014, but their 5-0 shelling of the Seattle
Sounders on May 11th stands out as a contest that showed the true potential of this team. The Revolution were firing on all
cylinders in that contest offensively, and they were playing excellent defense as well. Seattle is a quality team, but New
England has shown this season that they are capable of taking down any other club on any given day.
City is right there near the top of the standings yet again in 2014, and the Revolution are definitely looking forward to
their head-to-head matchup with KC on September 3rd. The standings usually end up pretty tight in points by the end of the
season, so this game could make all the difference in the world for these two clubs. Kansas City is looking strong, and New
England would love to exact their revenge on the team that bounced them from postseason play in 2013. The Revolution took
care of business earlier this season when they took down Kansas City on April 26th, and they will look to repeat that feat.
Kansas City is certainly not the only team on the home schedule this season, though, so take a look at what other teams will
be coming to Gillette Stadium in 2014.
