Revs Discussing Stadium Plans

Revs Discussing Stadium Plans

I feel as thought this might be a broken record when it comes to stadiums and the New England Revolution. (The same would apply for D.C. United too)

Every deal sounds good and each time it ends up going no where. So why is the latest news any different?

Revolution president Brian Bilello confirmed that the team is in preliminary talks with Revere, Mass, a urban suburb of Boston about a potential soccer stadium. Revere mayor Daniel Rizzo told the Boston Globe that his city has approached the Revs about a placing a stadium on the site of the former Wonderland dog track.

The two sides are talking, that can only mean a good thing, right? Let’s hope so.

According to some reports, the Revs hope to have a stadium by 2015 or 2016. The Revs are mainly just looking for a deal that works for them and the city they go with. Some folks will love where they end up and others will hate it. Just a fact of life when it comes to building a soccer stadium.

I do like hearing the fact that the proposed land for this stadium in Revere is already linked to downtown Boston by the T, the local subway system. Easy public access to a stadium is a must no matter which team we are talking about here.

Will this deal get done? It is too early to tell but this deal does sound pretty good for the Revs in my book. It certainly sounds better than any previous talks that this club has had with Boston suburbs.

What do you think Revs fans? Will Revere work for you?
