Revolution unveil 2012 schedule

The New England Revolution have unveiled their 2012 schedule and will open their season on March 10, according to the team.

The league is implementing a regionally-focused schedule, so teams will face intra-conference teams more frequently.

"With the new schedule format, the Revolution will play seven Eastern Conference teams three times each this season: Chicago, Columbus, D.C., Kansas City, Montreal, New York and Philadelphia. The Revs will face Chicago, Columbus and New York twice at home and once on the road, while the club will travel twice to D.C., Kansas City, Montreal and Philadelphia with one return meeting against each in Foxborough. New England will play two-game series with Houston and Toronto. Eastern Conference opponents comprise 25 games of the 34-game schedule.

"The remaining nine games will be played against Western Conference opponents as the Revs will face each Western team only one time apiece in 2012. The Revolution will host Chivas USA, Colorado, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver at Gillette Stadium, and will travel to Dallas, LA, Real Salt Lake and San Jose."
