It was with heavy hearts we learned Matt Reis would be retiring from the our New England Revolution last December, ending a stellar 10 year run with the team. The Midnight Riders will be honoring Matt Reis with his very own “Legend” scarf. We have reached out to Matt Reis, and we are pleased to announce that proceeds will be donated to Boston Children’s Hospital. We are going to have a limited run of these scarves so order early!
Order deadline is April 21 at 3pm.
Tickets will be emailed after the final order is placed.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Join the Riders in the tailgate lots – open at 11:00am – as we celebrate the start of the new season at home.
