MLS New England Revolution

Mark your calendars as MLS Is Back Tourney sets schedule

The schedule for the MLS Is Back Tournament is out, and Revolution supporters won’t have to wait too long to see The Boys In Blue.

With the tournament beginning Wednesday, July 8, the Revs — drawn into Group C two weeks ago — will start the competition the next day, Thursday, July 9, against Montreal at 8 p.m. ET. (TV: TUDN)

The Revs lost to L’Impact, 2-1, in the season opener.

On Thursday, July 16, New England will take on DC United, also at 8 p.m. (FS1).

Then on Tuesday, July 21, the Revs will finish the group against Toronto FC at 9 a.m. (ESPN).

Unlike the World Cup, the final game in Group C will not be played concurrently, with Montreal and DC playing at 10:30 p.m. ET that night.

Montreal will play Toronto on Wednesday, July 15 on TUDN at 8 p.m.

Should the Revs finish first or second in the group, they would advance to the knock-out stage of the competition. They can also advance with one of the top four third-place finishes.
