FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution returns home this Saturday, July 26, when the team hosts the Columbus Crew at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m., with Comcast SportsNet televising the game and 98.5 The Sports Hub carrying the game on the radio.
A limited number of Andrew Farrell bobbleheads will be given away at the stadium’s entry gates prior to the game.
The Revolution (7-10-2, 23 pts.) returns home after a two-game road trip to LA and Dallas last week. The Revs will play seven of their next nine games at Gillette Stadium, leading to mid-September. New England is currently tied for fifth in the Eastern Conference standings, even on points with Philadelphia and Columbus.
Columbus (5-7-8, 23 pts.) is 1-3-4 in its last eight games, with last Saturday’s 2-1 win over Montreal its first victory since May 24. The Crew’s defense features Cranston, R.I., product Michael Parkhurst, who began his career with the Revs in 2005 before moving to Europe.
Saturday’s meeting is the first of three contests between the two teams this season. The Revs will visit Columbus on Sept. 20, and then host the third and final meeting at Gillette Stadium on Oct. 4.
