The Revolution announced Wednesday they will host drive-in watch parties on the Gillette Stadium field for the team’s matches in the MLS is Back Tournament later this month.
Fans will park on the stadium field and be able to view the game on the north and south end zone video boards in a socially distanced environment. Tickets are $40 a vehicle, and the proceeds will benefit the United Negro College Fund’s (UNCF) Virtual Walk for Education, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Boston Branch, and Special Olympics Massachusetts.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime for Revolution fans and the first opportunity of its kind in Gillette Stadium history,” Revolution Club president Brian Bilello said in a statement issued through the team. “Our supporters are incredibly passionate about the club and we are excited to provide this unique experience for our fans to gather together again and watch the team return to play.”
Cars will undergo security screening prior to entering the stadium, which will open two hours prior to kickoff. Restrooms will be available on the lower concourse with proper social distancing protocols in place. Fans are encouraged to bring their own lawn seating and non-alcoholic refreshments, as concessions will not be available.
The Revolution return to action Thursday, July 9 at 8 p.m. against Montreal.
