An eight-time Premier League champion will visit Gillette Stadium in just two months' time.
The New England Revolution will host Chelsea FC on May 15 in an exhibition contest dubbed "The Final Whistle On Hate," with all proceeds from the charity match going toward initiatives dedicated to combating anti-Semitism and hate crimes.
In addition to playing for a great cause, Revs coach Brad Friedel is excited about the chance to play against one of the most storied clubs in international soccer.
"We're looking forward to that, no doubt," Friedel said Thursday during his appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Zolak & Bertrand. "I think the most important thing is why we're doing it and the funds being raised and the charities it will go towards."
Friedel, who spent almost a decade in the Premier League as a goalkeeper for Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur, also will recognize a few folks on Chelsea's sideline.
"I get to see some old friends: There's one of my old teammates on the coaching staff, and there's another very good friend of mine, so it will be nice to see some familiar faces," Friedel said.
Friedel also recognized the match is a good chance for some of his less experienced players to go up against some of the best players Europe has to offer.
"I also think it'll be a good time for some of our new players and players maybe that haven't been over to Europe to play and see up close and personal some of the players from one of the world's elite teams," he added.
"So, I think all around it's a very good thing."
