5/29/16: New England Revolution Family Fun

Evan has been celebrating his 11th birthday for several weeks and as part of the celebration we were lucky enough to take him to a New England Revolution game.  They played the Seattle Sounders and won 2 to 1!  The roar of the crowd when they score is so much fun to experience.
Evan has been playing soccer since he was 3 so he loves to watch soccer games.  He loves all sports but has a special place in his heart for watching soccer games as it is his favorite game to play.
If you are not aware there are some new rules at Gillette Stadium.  You are only allowed to carry a gallon sized clear freezer bag measuring 12" x 12" x 6", a women's clutches not to exceed 8" x 5" x 2" (approximately the size of a hand), or clear plastic bags carrying only purchases made at the stadium ProShop.  For more information read here.  Still cameras are allowed however video cameras are prohibited.
 In the past the kids got to meet Slyde the Fox who is the Mascot for the New England Revolution.
Slyde was wearing shorts last night as it was a very warm day.  Luckily they were selling Friendly's ice cream.
Soccer is a fast paced sport and fun to watch.  It is amazing what some of the players do with the ball and the control they have.  It is a great learning experience to have kids watch a professional soccer game.
We showed up a little early to watch them practicing before the game.  Often times they have soccer teams as ball boys or on the field during practice.  To learn more about the VIP experience you can read this post.
The game is really family friendly.  Outside the stadium there was a fan zone where kids could kick soccer balls and hang out and relax.
At half time there was a fun game with fans in bubbles.  The kids were getting quite a kick out of it.
The game is lots of fun to watch with action for the whole 90 minutes of play.
It was a beautiful night at Gillette Stadium.
 You should definitely go with the family to Gillette Stadium for a New England Revolution Game.  It is affordable, a lot of fun and a great way to go to Gillette Stadium.
