"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.

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 The Guild, in Pawtucket, RI. The Guild is working with established mid-to large-size craft breweries looking to expand their capacity, sales and distribution. The Guild is a Partner Brewery, where brewers will brew their beer under the care and supervision of their own brewmaster, in a state-of-the-art facility offering a wide range of brewing and packaging services. Currently, Wash Ashore Beer Company, Devil’s Purse Brewing Company, Newburyport Brewing Company, Great North Aleworks, Night Shift Brewing, and Narragansett Brewery are all brewing and serving beer at the Guild. We will also be the first event held in their brand new beer hall.

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.

2nd Annual Rebellion General Assembly

Greetings Rebels!

On Saturday, January 20th at 2PM, we will be hosting our 2nd annual Rebellion General Assembly at Brass Monkey. For any of you who are unfamiliar with what this is, here is the breakdown:

The What:

Now’s a chance for you to learn about the inner workings of the Rebellion. It’ll also give you the chance to ask questions, provide feedback, suggest ideas,  and find out how to get involved with Rebel HQ in a quieter, less chaotic setting than the tailgate lot, in The Fort, or at an away match watch party. Items on the agenda include:

  • Overview of the 2017 season Rebellion activities/accomplishments

  • Goals for 2018

  • Review bylaws and board voting procedures

  • Question and answers

 

The Where:

Brass Monkey (800 Allens Ave in Providence) has been the Providence home for our away watch parties and other events. The staff is fantastic, the food is amazing, and Oscar (the owner) has been so great to us and done so much to help make us feel welcomed. Come enjoy some great food, drink, and company.

The When:

Saturday January 20th at 2PM

The Who:

ALL OF YOU! The Revs season will be starting soon, with preseason camp kicking off shorty. Think of this as a great excuse to meet up with old friends, make new ones, and get ready for the Revs 2018 season.

We’ll see you January 20th!

 

Unable to attend? Ask a question anyway! Fill out the form below and we'll answer your question during the General Assembly. Also, we'll share with you the meeting minutes and get our response to your question.

Closing Out 2017 Strong

Well Rebels, for the second consecutive year, we won’t get any playoff soccer at Gillette. I know I know, we are just as disappointed as you are. As always, the season began with high hopes, but some poor performances, some bad bounces, and some questionable calls have kept the Revs out of the playoffs again and have likely increased your blood pressure. It’s not over yet! We have two games left and we say that we make the most of them. We won’t have Revolution soccer until March of next year, so let’s enjoy what we have left with our fellow Rebels before the long winter sets in.

 First ever Rebellion "Suit Up" - October 2010

First ever Rebellion "Suit Up" - October 2010

Sunday October 15th - Suit Up!

This coming Sunday is our final home game of 2017 and our annual “Suit Up” match. A Rebellion tradition born in the dark days of 2010 will continue as we remind everyone that we may not have the best team in MLS (statistically speaking), but we will have the best dressed supporters. Come wearing your Sunday’s best. We’ll look dapper AF as we give our boys a proper home send off for the season.

Suday October 22nd - We Ride North!

The following week is our annual Montreal trip and final game of the 2017 season. A great trip that turns fans into supporters, supporters into diehards, and diehards into well, I don’t know, super diehards? That didn’t work out as I planned. Just join us north of the border! Check out this Montreal post for logistics and ticket info.

PS: Our friends in 1642 MTL will be returning the favor of hosting us before the match!

See you there, eh?

Rebellion Bake-Off for Sierra Leone

Rebellion Bake-Off for Sierra Leone

On August 14, 2017, massive flooding caused mudslides and devastation in the Sierra Leone capital of Freetown, leaving more than 400 people dead and hundreds more homeless.

Not long after, our Revs own Sierra Leone native, Kei Kamara, put out the call for people to help. He asked those who were able to donate to his Heart Shaped Hands Foundation to aid in the relief effort, even promising to match all donations.

Keep up the fight in Montreal 10/22!

Fall in New England. For most it means it's time to put out the pumpkins and put on a sweater and suffer through a million commercials during an NFL game.

For Revs fans it means it's time find your passport and hit the road to support the Boys in Blue on foreign soil as they continue the fight to get above that damned red line and into the playoffs.

The game is Sunday, October 22, 2017 and all roads lead to Montreal. (Please note they also pass through some wonderful sections of northern New England en route to Montreal.)

Personally it's one of my favorite soccer road trips out there. It's a great city, great weather, great parties, great atmosphere and a great crew of supporters that usually make the trek. Also, the Revs seem to do well up there! Join us!

Have questions? Send us a note. Tickets are available by clicking the button below! We'll be printing the tickets and bringing them to Montreal and passing them out as people enter the stadium.

2017 Season Approaches

Hey Rebels,

Untitled picture (4).png

Expansion Drafts, SuperDrafts are in the books. Schedule is released. 2017 MLS season is coming in hot!

So we've just finished inventorying all our merchandise and sending out packages and will soon have our store set up to purchase more cool stuff to help us raise money. For those who might be missing a scarf from a specific year, hopefully you'll find it on our store to complete the collection.

Rebel HQ will be working diligently in the next month or so to collaborate with the Front Office to fix some things we think could be better in the Fort or the tailgate lot for 2017 as well as preparing road trips details for some select away matches.

More coming soon. Thanks for the support and help us grow.

-Rebel HQ
