If the New England Revolution's hot start to the season (1-0-1, 4 pts.) isn't enough to get you down to Foxboro, perhaps the next bit of news is.
The Revs announced today that they will face English powerhouse Manchester United at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday, July 13.
The friendly is part of the 2011 World Football Challenge, which features teams from the MLS and some of the best teams in the world. Man U's stop in New England is one of a few that they make, including one against the MLS All-Star's.
We're very pleased to invite Manchester United to Gillette Stadium to play the Revolution, Revolution InvestorOperator Jonathan A. Kraft said. Man U is one of the biggest names in the sports world. Not only is this a great opportunity for Revolution and New England soccer fans to see a world power in person, but it's also a tremendous opportunity for all sports fans in New England to witness such a major and memorable event."
Revs season ticket holders will have the first crack at the tickets, as they go on sale for them starting on Monday, April 4.
Multiple game packages, including the Man U game, go on sale to the public on Tuesday, April 12.
Individual tickets to the match start at 50 and will go on sale to the public on Saturday, April 23.
