FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – On Monday, the New England Revolution broke ground on a $35-million training facility on the southeast section of Gillette Stadium's broader complex.
The facility, expected to be functional by summer 2019, features a new building that'll house the Major League Soccer side's first team and academy operations. Sitting on 68 acres of wetlands, the privately-financed project will include four fields – including the grass field already used by head coach Brad Friedel's team.
Ultimately, two more grass fields will be built, as well as a turf field for the academy. The current grass field will also shift to the academy, which features U-13 through U-19 teams in U.S. Soccer's year-round Development Academy.
