Revolution looking for stadium deal near Boston
Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution and Somerville officials have held preliminary discussions about building a 20,000-plus seat soccer stadium on a site not far from Charlestown, Mayor Joseph Curtatone confirmed.This site is a wonderful location as it is close to the center city, has access to the highway, not far from the airport and has good public transportation options.
The 100-acre tract of vacant lots, industrial buildings and rail lines off Innerbelt Road near Interstate 93 has long been targeted by Somerville for redevelopment.
Over the past 5 years, the Revs have been one of the best teams in MLS but their attendance numbers have always been low. With Foxbourgh a bit of a drive out of town (about 18 miles south of Boston), it is hard to catch the casual fan, however a stadium close to downtown might just be what they need to turn things around.
