FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Fresh off breaking the all-time regular-season points record and winning the club's first Supporters Shield, the New England Revolution are gearing up for a chance to win their first-ever MLS Cup.
The Revolution won 22 of their 34 games and finished with a record-breaking 73 points this season and now hold the No. 1 seed throughout the upcoming MLS playoffs. But now they have their eyes set on the MLS Cup, a trophy that has eluded them fives times already in the club's history.
After getting a bye for the first round of playoff matchups, the Revolution will play in the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday, Nov. 30 against New York City FC, a team they're 2-1 against this season. The Revolution will be looking to follow up on last year's playoff run, where they lost to the eventual champion Columbus Crew SC in the conference finals
