Bus trip to Yankee Stadium

Bus trip to Yankee Stadium

One of the most frequently asked questions we get at Rebellion HQ is “When are you going to do another bus trip?” We hear stories all the time about people’s first bus trips, how it got them hooked on supporter culture, how so and so got sick that one time and it was so funny (you know how you are…….). Well guess what, it’s time for a bus trip!

Join us on Saturday September 7th as we hit the road to the Big Apple, the City so nice they named it twice (Manhattan is the other name), to watch our Revs take on NYCFC! 

But this won’t be just a normal bus trip, oh no no. We have something a little different planned for this one. One of the major reasons we want to run this trip is to give you Rebels a memorable game day experience on the road. So we remembered back a few years ago, when a smaller group of Rebels ventured outside the confines of beautiful New England to travel to Yankee Stadium. It was a happy accident that before that game, the other team that plays at Gillette was also playing a New York team, so they decided to find some place to take in that game as a warm up. And in the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of NYC, they found a hidden gem. 

 

Professor Thoms is THE New England Sports bar in New York City. It is headquarters for any displaced New England sports fans living in the lion's den. We reached out and they heard we wanted to bring 50 rowdy, crazed soccer supporters down for a little pre game indoor tailgate and they couldn’t have been more excited. SO, here is the plan.

6:30 am - Depart the supporters’ lot at Gillette Stadium
11:30 am - Bus drops us at Professor Thoms in NYC
2:00 pm - Head to the subway for the uptown journey to Yankee Stadium
2:30 pm - Head into Yankee Stadium and watch our Revs beat NYCFC

After the game, we will head back to Gillette Stadium with 3 points, and a whole bunch of fun memories! Use the options below to purchase your seat on the bus, or a game ticket so you can meet us at the bar. Any questions, shoot us an email at nerebellion@gmail.com or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter

Request for a team town hall with the Krafts

Rebels,

It’s quite difficult to be a Revs fan right now. 2019 has had a nightmarish start and Thursday, May 9, 2019, the FO relieved Head Coach Brad Friedel’s of his duties. It was the right decision to make, but as many of you will agree, there are more changes that need to be made. There are many questions that need to be answered.

Why is Burns picking another coach?
Why do only keep hearing rumors about a stadium?
Why are DPs refusing to join us?

We can gripe on social media but as we have learned from the past few years, that gets us no where.

Rebel HQ met and felt it was our duty to use the relationship we’ve established with the front office to formally request a town hall meeting with the Revs FO and most importantly, either Robert or Jonathan Kraft. Rebels need their chance to voice their concerns and ask the tough questions.

Prior to the game on Saturday, May 11, members of Rebel HQ met with the Revs FO and Team Ops representatives for our usual pre-game security meeting. At this meeting, Rebellion President Matt Puglise handed the written request for a town hall meeting to New England Revolution President Brian Billelo. The copy of the letter is below.

We will keep all members updated on the Revs decision. That being said, the Rebellion does not intend on participating in a town hall meeting if Robert or Jonathan Kraft are not present.


May 11, 2019

Dear President Bilello and General Manager Burns--

The Rebellion have a long and proud history of supporting the Revolution in good times and in bad. Our passion for and commitment to this club is unwavering and even in these challenging times, we will always remain "New England ‘Til We Die."

However, as the organization moves forward with critical decisions relative to the club's future, including a permanent head coach and potential stadium, we believe that it is critically important for the voice of the supporters to be recognized, respected and included in those decisions.

That is why we are formally requesting a town-hall-style supporters’ summit.

We are the ones who show up week in and week out; who travel to away games; support the club’s charitable activities, and alway stand as vocal defenders of our players. We are among your most loyal supporters and we are asking for an open forum where questions may be asked and a free-flowing, respectful dialogue about the club’s future will occur.

We suggest this meeting be open to any member in good standing of the two official supporter groups, The Rebellion and The Midnight Riders. We also respectfully request that you both attend and participate, along with Interim Head Coach Mike Lapper and most importantly, either Robert or Jonathan Kraft.

We believe in this club and we believe in its’ future. This thoughtful dialogue can go a long way to stem the tide of frustration and uncertainty that far too many supporters feel, so we strongly urge you to engage.

Thank you for consideration of this request. We eagerly await your response and look forward to working with you to make it happen.   

Sincerely,

The Rebellion

"Brew-away" Games Viewing Parties

Watching Revs away games and having a few adult beverages go hand in hand. There is nothing like watching our Boys in Blue and responsibly throwing back a few cold ones or cocktails. We also know that many Rebels love local craft breweries and distilleries, which got us thinking: Why not head right to the source?

We are very excited to announce a new tradition of “Brew-away” Game viewing parties! First up, for the September 29th game vs Toronto FC, we will be at GrandTen Distilling in Boston.

12238444_1039237849452106_4663576091769920440_o.0.0.jpg

GrandTen Distilling is located on Dorchester Ave, in Boston. Since 2010,  they’ve produced a wide variety of spirits from gin and vodka to rum and whiskey. All products are produced in very small batches and distilled in copper. Every step, from choosing the raw ingredients to bottling and labeling, is done by hand. They offer tours and tastings (which we will definitely be taking part in) and have a great bar area with tons of cool cocktails (which will have Revolution and Rebellion names for the party). They will be bringing in a food truck or two for us that night as well.       

Join us at 6:30 pm for a private Rebellion distillery tour and tasting, then stay to watch the match at 7:30.

The Revs travel to Atlanta United FC on October 6th, and for that match we’ll be at Castle Island Brewing Co, in Norwood, MA. Castle Island is dedicated to crafting the highest quality beer with purpose and without pretense. With a focus on American ales, they make offerings that are both unique and approachable.

This match kicks off at 3:30 pm, but be there at 2:30 pm for our private tour and tasting.

We’ll announce more news as the events get closer, but if there’s a local brewery or distillery you want to work with, let us know by filling out the form below! We are making this a more regular event and want to know great places in your area to check out!

Recap of 2018 General Assembly

Dozens of Rebellion members got together to review activities from last season and chart a course for 2018 that includes a big push on increasing opportunities for members to get involved.

On Saturday, January 20, The Rebellion hosted their second annual General Assembly Meeting at Brass Monkey in Providence, Rhode Island. This was the second attempt at this event, as the original date December 9th was postponed due to snow. So we were excited and relieved to have excellent, unseasonably warm weather for this meeting!

2018 Rebellion General Assembly

2018 Rebellion General Assembly

This meeting was an opportunity to sit down with our members and discuss our successes from last year and our goals for from the upcoming season. Our main focus for this meeting was to inform and encourage involvement within Rebel HQ, the volunteer team that is responsible for all the tailgates, watch parties, away trips, and other events that the Rebellion runs through the year.

The meeting was also held to nominate and elect officers for the 2018 Season. Matt Puglise, Ray Sullivan, Jon Huot, and Alex Almeida were all unanimously re-elected to hold previous positions within the Rebellion board of directors.

What do you think?

We would like to hear what you think. Do you want to get involved, but don’t know how to help? Do you have questions about the inner workings of the Rebellion? Please leave a comment or question below. We would love to reach out to you and discus.

Rebellion Board Statement Regarding Columbus Crew SC Relocation

Supporters are what sets soccer in America apart from the other professional sports and no one knows that more than the leadership of Major League Soccer. This can be demonstrated by the fact that supporters are the cornerstone of almost all marketing efforts from the league. Even during spells of bad club performance, supporters help to maintain a fertile environment where casual fans can be exposed to the soccer culture and can be transformed into passionate die hard supporters. The relationship that is built up around a club from the ownership, front office, the players, and down through the supporters and casual fans helps to build and reinforce a closely knit community of people with a shared passion.

However, breaking that relationship has consequences.
