FOXBOROUGH, Mass -- For weeks, actually make that months, we’ve known the New England Revolution were destined for their first-ever Supporters’ Shield.
Sunday offered the franchise a chance to properly celebrate that prestigious and historic accomplishment, as the Revs hoisted the hardware after their regular season finale in front of a season-high Gillette Stadium attendance of 31,625.
Yes, the Revs dropped a rather uneventful match to Inter Miami CF, 1-0, on a picture-perfect November day. But that didn’t matter all that much to one of the founding member MLS clubs, who had waited so long for a moment of this caliber. Not only were the Revolution the best regular season team in the 2021 MLS season, they were the best regular season team that the league has ever seen.
