FOXBORO The New England Revolution will look to become the first-ever two-time winner of SuperLiga when the club hosts Monarcas Morelia in the championship match of SuperLiga 2010 on Wednesday, Sept. 1, at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
The Revs, who won SuperLiga 2008 and still stand as the only tournament winner from Major League Soccer, will face Morelia for the second time in 2010. The final will be a rematch from earlier in the tournament, as the Revolution claimed a 1-0 victory over the Mexican team in the group stage on July 20 at Gillette Stadium.
Tickets for the championship match start at 22 and will be available through all Ticketmaster outlets and through the Revolution Ticket Office at 1-877-GET-REVS.
The New England Revolution have acquired defender Benjamin Angoua on loan from EA Guingamp for the 2017 MLS season with the option to transfer permanently following the season. Angoua will be added to the Revolution roster upon the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P-1 Visa.
“With Benjamin’s experience, adding him to the Revolution was an important step for our club this offseason,” Revolution GM Michael Burns said. “We began this offseason with the goal of bringing in veteran players who are ready to contribute right away, so we are very pleased to have Benjamin with us as we head to preseason training in Arizona.”
Angoua, 30, has made a combined 309 appearances across all competitions in France, Hungary, and the Ivory Coast, recording five goals and two assists from the backline. He joins the Revolution after more than two seasons with EA Guingamp (2014-17) and previously played for FC Valenciennes (2010-14), both in France’s top-flight Ligue 1. An experienced defender, Angoua has registered 152 appearances, including 138 starts, in Ligue 1 competition since 2010.
The 6-foot, 160-pound Ivorian international also played with Budapest Honvéd (2006-10) in Hungary’s OTP Bank Liga, and Africa Sports (2004-06) in the Ivory Coast Ligue 1. Angoua has additional experience competing in the UEFA Europa League with both Guingamp and Budapest Honvéd.
At the international level, the Anyama native has recorded 17 caps and registered one goal for the Ivory Coast national team.
