When it was announced that the Minutemen would be playing its home games at Gillette Stadium, soccer fans in New England likely asked: How does that affect the Revolution?
The college football and MLS seasons overlap for just over two months, and a number of Revs games take place on the weekends. That being the case, it was important for both parties to make sure that there would be no mishaps on the scheduling front.
That being said, UMass football and the New England Revolution will share one date: October 20th. That day, UMass will play Bowling Green, and the Revolution take on the Chicago Fire. However, the New England Revolution have already sent out a tweet telling their fans that the football game will not affect the late-season match:
The Revolution game is slated to start at 7:30 that evening, so one can imagine that UMass will likely kickoff around noon. I assume this means that the Revs will play on a football-lined field.
