Fall River Throws Out Welcome Mat For Kraft’s Pro Soccer Team
Fall River Mayor Wil Flanagan would like to see the New England Revolution soccer team play their home games in Fall River. According to the Herald News, Flanagan has written to Rev’s owner Robert Kraft, inviting him and his development team to tour the city. The Revolution is looking to build a “soccer-only” stadium somewhere in the state, and Flanagan says there are a number of locations in Fall River that would be ideal.
In the letter Flanagan says his city’s highway system would give out-of-town fans easy access to a stadium. The Revolution currently play at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. A spokesman for the soccer team says there’s been a lot of interest by communities looking to become the new home of the Revolution. He says the team will continue to study all its options.
