The Revolution will team up with English Premier League power Chelsea FC to play a charity match at 8 p.m. May 15 at Gillette Stadium. The exhibition match, dubbed the “Final Whistle on Hate,” was conceived in November without a specified time or date.
Proceeds from the match will be dedicated to initiatives to combat anti-Semitism and all hate crimes, including the World Jewish Congress, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Holocaust Educational Trust.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Revolution owner Robert Kraft will also donate $1 million each in support of the cause.
Tickets go on sale to the public March 15.
