FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution have developed a reputation for paying modest salaries and establishing corresponding goals. No longer, though.
As the Revolution prepare for their 25th season with a visit to the Montreal Impact on Saturday afternoon, their sights have been set higher.
In the last year, the Revolution have contracted the maximum three Designated Players – Gustavo Bou, Adam Buksa and Carles Gil, representing $12.7 million in transfer fees. They have hired sporting director/head coach Bruce Arena, expanded his staff and started a Revolution II team in USL League One. They’ve also opened a $35 million training center behind Gillette Stadium that rivals the best MLS has to offer.
