FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Revolution are offering fans free round-trip bus rides to Washington for the MLS Cup between the Revolution and Houston Dynamo.
The buses will leave from Gillette Stadium on Saturday morning. The MLS Cup is Sunday afternoon at RFK Stadium. The buses will depart at 5 p.m. Sunday, returning early Monday to Gillette Stadium. Fans have to buy their own game tickets.
"Our fans have been the backbone of our team since its early years, so we're proud to be able to provide them with free round-trip transportation to MLS Cup 2007," said owner Robert Kraft, who also owns the NFL New England Patriots.
"We've seen how important it is to play in the postseason with a true home-field advantage and we're hoping that with the great support of all our fans at RFK Stadium on Sunday, we'll bring home our first MLS Cup championship," he said.
New England lost the past two title games, 1-0 to Los Angeles in overtime then to Houston 4-3 on penalty kicks.
