History

Until their 3-2 victory over FC Dallas in the 2007 US Open Cup, the Revs had never won a major trophy in MLS in their 13 year history. They were one of three teams in MLS that date back further than 2005 to have not won one of the three major titles in MLS (MLS Cup, US Open Cup, and the MLS Supporter's Shield). They came close five times, reaching the US Open Cup final in 2001 and the MLS Cup finals in 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007; coincidentally losing their US Open Cup final, and the MLS Cup in 2002 and 2005, to the Los Angeles Galaxy, and losing the MLS Cup in 2006 and 2007, to the Galaxy's former rival, the relocated Houston Dynamo.

Their 2002 MLS Cup appearance granted them a spot in the 2003 CONCACAF Champions Cup, but lost their first matchup 5:3 on aggregate after playing two games on the road to LD Alajuelense. The Revolution again faced LD Alajuelense of Costa Rica in the home and away 2006 CONCACAF Champions' Cup. The "home" game was played February 22, 2006 in Bermuda despite some fans feeling that playing at Gillette Stadium in the adverse conditions of winter in New England could have been advantageous.

New England had the chance to win their first MLS championship, in MLS Cup 2006, against the Houston Dynamo, but ultimately suffered the same fate as their two previous attempts in 2002 and 2005; the Revs, after Taylor Twellman scored in the second overtime, allowed a game-tying header, from Dynamo Brian Ching, that sent the game to penalty kicks, where New England lost, 4-3. The 2007 MLS Cup was a rematch from the previous year, though the result was the same as Houston defeated New England 2-1.

Their main rivals are largely considered to be the New York Red Bulls, although in recent years the Revolution have built rivalries with fellow Eastern Conference teams DC United and Chicago Fire. The club's supporter's clubs are called the Midnight Riders and Rev Army. The name 'Midnight Riders' is in honor of the famous rides of Paul Revere and William Dawes, who announced the departure of British troops from Boston to Concord at the beginning of the American Revolution. The Midnight Riders and Rev Army occupy the north stand of the stadium, which they have nicknamed "The Fort". The Fort is a general admission section and draws its name from the revolutionary theme which runs through the team and independent supporters' associations.[3] Year founded 1995 (as NY/NJ MetroStars) League Major League Soccer Nickname Red Bulls, Metro, RBNY Stadium Giants Stadium East Rutherford, NJ Coach vacant Owner Red Bull First Game Los Angeles Galaxy 2–1 NY/NJ MetroStars (Rose Bowl; April 13, 1996) Largest Win Red Bull New York 6–0...
