Statement regarding the incident in the Fort on August 23

Last night, two members of the Fort were asked to leave for participating in a chant that the rest of the fort was doing, and has been doing for years. We are unsure why these two individuals were singled out. We are also more concerned that the security protocol established after “FortGate” was totally disregarded (i.e., security asks supporters group leaders to intervene before making ejections). We are in contact with the team, as always, and will be working to better understand why events transpired as they did last night. We will most certainly be working on a way to prevent further lapses in protocol like this. We are very upset that once again missteps by security have tainted another Revolution home game.
