From the halls of Foxboro Stadium…

Schedule, TV Details Announced

Posted by Mike Marshall on January 29, 2009

It’s been a big couple of days for the Revs, as they’ve not only unveiled their 2009 Regular Season schedule, but announced that the team has reached a three-year deal with WSBK-TV that ensures every game will continue to be televised.

Schedule highlights include:

  • Season Opener: Saturday, March 21st at San Jose
  • Home Opener: Saturday, April 4th vs. Dallas
  • For the first time in recent memory the Revs do not have a weeknight home game scheduled
  • The Revs play home and away with every team in the league except New York (extra road game) and Kansas City (extra home game)
  • David Beckham and the LA Galaxy visit Saturday, August 8th.  At least we think David Beckham will be visiting
  • The Revs will play three home games this year that are scheduled to start at 6:00 PM.  Interesting
  • Seattle’s first visit to Gillette Stadium comes Saturday, September 26th

Please remember that if recent history is any indication, this schedule is written in Jello. ($1 to Doug Logan)

Meanwhile, one gets the feeling that TV-38 is somewhat less than thrilled about airing the Revs again.  At least, that’s the impression I’d get if I listened to Station Manager Ed Piette:

The matches broadcast on TV38 have been very popular with soccer fans, and we are glad to be able to bring the games to viewers who might not have a chance to see them otherwise.

Uh-huh.  And I’m sure this has nothing to do with the fact that sister station WBZ just picked up the rights the Patriots’ Preseason games and Patriots All Access, right?  Just like WEEI would be airing Revolution games even if they didn’t want Patriots Monday.
