New England Revolution Logo
This page is about the meaning, origin and characteristic of the symbol, emblem, seal, sign, logo or flag: New England Revolution Logo.
The New England Revolution is an American professional soccer club based in the Greater Boston area that competes in Major League Soccer (MLS), in the Eastern Conference of the league. It is one of the ten charter clubs of MLS, having competed in the league since its inaugural season.
The club is owned by Robert Kraft, who also owns the New England Patriots along with his son, Jonathan Kraft, who is a major investor of the club. The name "Revolution" refers to the New England region's significant involvement in the American Revolution that took place from 1775-1783.
New England currently play their home matches at Gillette Stadium. The club played their home games at the adjacent and now-demolished Foxboro Stadium, from 1996 until 2001. The Revs hold the distinction of being the only original MLS team to have every league game in its history televised.
The Revolution won their first major trophy in the 2007 US Open Cup. The following year, they won the 2008 North American SuperLiga.
The club badge is stylized and based on the flag of the United States with some of the stars made into a soccer ball (similar to Adidas' ball for the UEFA Champions League). The overall design mirrors the 1994 FIFA World Cup logo. The Revolution is the last founding team of the MLS to keep its original crest.
Traditionally, the Revolution have worn all-navy at home, with the exception of red shorts during the club's first year in 1996. Since 2014, the club has worn white shorts at home. The Revolution wore white secondary kits for their entire existence up until 2015, when the club introduced a red away jersey with white and green accents in tribute to the flag of New England. Since 2011, UnitedHealthcare has been the Revolution's jersey sponsor; its logo is on the home and away jerseys.
