The Midnight Riders won the first ever New England Revolution Supporters cup this past Saturday with a score of 5-2. We would like to thank the Rebellion for an awesome game and a great time. We would also like to thank The New England Revolution, specifically Cathal Conlon for organizing the event and Brian Bilello for reffing the match.
We would also like to announce Antonio Fresco and Matt Zytka as Co-Men of Match.

Burgers, Beers, and Buddies
Interested in soccer? Supporters culture? Tailgating? Drinking beer? Screaming and singing like a maniac at the top of your lungs? Making friends? Fun? Sports? Goals?
This Sunday (7/8) is the perfect day for everyone who has ever wanted to check out the local soccer XI but didn’t know where to start.
The Midnight Riders are hosting an “Open House” Event in order to reach out to any folks who may be interested in what goes on in the biggest soccer supporters group in New England.
The group will be putting in the extra effort at their tailgate in order to provide a little food and drink for those who stop by.
Note: Parking in the Riders lot is for members only, but general parking is allowed in the north part of our lot (map/diagram here)
It’s your time to shine.
We’ve proven over the years that we’re true tailgating pros. It’s what makes us special and makes traveling from all over New England and showing up three hours before matches worthwhile.
We’re hoping to turn the July 8th tailgate into a sort of “Open House” for potential new members. We’re already planning on bringing plenty of new people down on our Boston to Gillette Bus and we’d also like to encourage any of you to invite that extra friend that you’ve always wanted to bring along to a match.
Most importantly, however, we want you, the Midnight Riders, the people that make us the best Supporters Group in New England, to show how great we truly are. We’ve all experienced that great Riders hospitality and we are encouraging you to bring a little extra something to share at this tailgate. Your favorite recipe, a pizza, a bag of chips, drinks, whatever you think will show how awesome the Riders are.
Regardless of which category you fall into you should invite all your friends here: http://www.facebook.com/events/132510180221447/
