Garber wants New England Revolution to move closer to Boston

MLS Commissioner Don Garber believes New England Revolution would be better served by moving closer to inner-city Boston.

At present the Revs play at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts which is not a soccer-specific venue and Garber insists that a more suited stadium would be great for the MLS club.

"The issue is what do we need to do to fully capture the opportunity," Garber said. "This is a wildly passionate sports town.

"I have no doubt that (the Revs) would be one of our most successful teams if (they had) a stadium in an urban environment."

And Revs owner Robert Kraft says there are ongoing talks to have this potential new venue up and running in the near future.

"We continue to work on trying to create a soccer-specific stadium for the Revolution," Kraft said. "If and when that is going to happen, we feel like it has to be the right situation.

"We know that, eventually, we have to be in a soccer-specific stadium. We're going to continue to work towards that and we're hopeful that will happen."
