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!

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

Any questions let us know! NErebellion@gmail.com

Support our GIRLS in Blue!

In the wake of the USWNT’s crushing success in last year’s Women’s World Cup, and leading up to (hopefully!) Olympic Glory this summer, there has never been more buzz surrounding the amazing female athletes that grace pitches across the United States.

Have you ever wondered how you can get in on some of the action, support our Girls in Blue on a local level, and learn more about NWSL in the process? You’re in luck! The Rebellion is squading up to invade Jordan Field (formerly Soldiers Field) at Harvard on Sunday, May 1st to watch our local Boston Breakers face off against the Portland Thorns.

We’ll be sitting with the Breakers’ local supporters group, The Armada, and watching a clash between two talented teams that feature some of the most brilliant women in the sport. From Tobin Heath to Whitney Engen, the NWSL features a star-studded cast who are sure to open your eyes to the level of talent in our own backyard. There’s no better way to bask in the glory of both present and up-and-coming heroes while getting your dose of Sunday Soccer among fellow Rebels.

(Plus... isn’t it about time we start to get used to visiting a stadium in Boston?)

Discounted tickets are available now in our Travel store and are going fast. Purchase soon to be sat in our reserved supporters section.
