New England Revolution have been looking to get their first football-specific MLS stadium for some time now. All indications suggest it’s going to be just south of downtown Boston.
Kraft family, owners of New England Patriots and New England Revolution, are said to be in talks with Boston city hall regarding a new soccer-specific stadium.
Revolution currently play at Gillette Stadium, but the 68,800-giant is far too big for their needs. It’s also located outside the city, so the MLS side is expected to relocate.
The desired new location was selected last year and lies just south of Boston downtown, between major highway and railway lines. In July representatives of the investors met with city officials regarding the project on city-owned land.
Investment banking giant Goldman Sachs is now part of the talks, attempting to find a financial model for the project that will suit both sides. Early drawing of the stadium was released, though one can imagine it have little reference to what may eventually be built on the site.
