SYSL Hosts Fall Night With the Revs

Hi Parent/Coach/Board Member,

On Saturday, October 4th, Somerville Youth Soccer is hosting its Fall Night With the Revs. The New England Revolution are facing the Columbus Crew in a must-win for both teams if they hope to make the MLS Playoffs in 2014. The Revolution are playing their best soccer of the year, thanks to the new acquisition of U.S. Men’s National Team Star Midfielder Jermaine Jones. It will be a packed Gillette Stadium and the Revolution need your support to continue their run at an MLS Championship.

Somerville Youth Soccer invites you to the event with tickets that are just $17 each. This exciting event provides you with a chance to experience tailgating at Gillette Stadium at the added benefit of free parking and to watch professional soccer with your son or daughter.

Our ticket link is available up until 2:00 PM on the day of the game, but buy your tickets early to get the best seats for the match. To order your tickets, click the following link and use the promotional code REVOLUTION.

Help Keep Somerville’s Fields Nice and Tidy
