BURLINGTON, MA, March 8, 2018 - NBC Sports Boston will kick off its 2018 live game coverage of the New England Revolution with the Revs home opener vs. the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, March 10th at 1:30PM from Gillette Stadium. NBC Sports Boston -- the club’s regional broadcast partner for the 9th season -- will carry up to 29 of the Revs regular season games, most followed by Revolution Postgame Live, featuring highlights, analysis, and interviews.
For the first time ever, all Revs games carried on NBC Sports Boston will be streamed live on NBCSportsBoston.com (nbcsportsboston.com/streamtherevs) and via the NBC Sports app for tablets and mobile devices. Authenticated NBC Sports Boston subscribers will be allowed to watch anywhere in the U.S. via participating distributors. NBC Sports Boston’s Revs Postgame Show will also be streamed live.
“As the game of soccer continues to grow globally, we are thrilled that NBC Sports Boston is able to offer fans a variety of ways to consume the Revs this season,” said Princell Hair, SVP and General Manager of NBC Sports Boston. “Whether it be through games on TV, our all new live streaming offering, or on our various social media channels, we are committed to reaching soccer fans both near and far with the very best Revs content across multiple platforms.”
“State of the Revs,” the bi-weekly show complete with Revolution features and interviews, will also return for another season on NBC Sports Boston beginning Thursday, March 15th with NBC Sports Boston’s Tom Giles serving as host. A sports broadcasting veteran, Giles has been with NBC Sports Boston since 2015 and currently co-hosts the nightly program Boston Sports Tonight presented by Town Fair Tire.
Brad Feldman enters his 14th season as the play-by-play voice of the Revolution and his 18th campaign as part of the team’s broadcasts. A long-time fixture as the club’s broadcast voice, Feldman brings more than 550 games of experience to the call. He will once again be joined by former Revolution assistant coach, World Cup veteran, and ESPN FC analyst Paul Mariner. The 2018 season marks the pair’s fifth season together in the booth, and their second joined by sideline reporter Naoko Funayama.
