        Who knows, but the Revs seem to have an agreement with the City of Everett to build. Apparently it has to be approved by the Legislature in Mass.

        I'll let the New England folks expand on the details.

        • I will say, if it actually does happen, between the NYCFC stadium and this that’ll be two major weaknesses for MLS shored up.

            • A few paragraphs regarding the Revs new stadium,

              The state Legislature will take up a measure this week that could finally enable the Kraft Group to build a roughly 25,000-seat soccer stadium for the New England Revolution along the Mystic River in Everett.

              The provision is included in a supplemental budget measure that Senate leaders filed on Monday. The House has already passed its version of the spending bill without the stadium language, but it approved similar stadium legislation last year. Lawmakers hope to resolve any differences in the dueling supplemental budget bills this week, as they wrap up formal sessions for the year.

              This legislation is considered crucial for the soccer stadium development to proceed: It removes 43 acres — currently home to the shuttered portion of a sprawling power plant overlooking the Mystic River — from a Designated Port Area, a state designation that limits certain waterfront parcels to industrial uses. The property is on Boston’s doorstep, just across the Mystic from Charlestown, and across Route 99 from the Encore Boston Harbor casino.

              Everett officials on Monday also released an agreement with the Kraft Group that spelled out a raft of community benefits from the project, perhaps the strongest public signal yet that the Revs owners are fully engaged in pursuing the site. Provisions range from setting aside four acres of open space for a public park to $5 million for a community center and $10 million for a housing stabilization fund, to limiting on-site parking to 75 spaces(?!?!?!?) and allowing the city’s soccer teams and band program to use the facility.
              A bad cause requires many words.

                I mean, that really wouldn’t be a bad thing. Especially if they could do away with some of the godawful renovations that happened.

                  So basically, not a downtown stadium but close enough to call it good?

                    I think it'll work. Beats having to travel to Gillette.

                    Traffic could be a drawback. You've got casino traffic coming and going, and coming up from the south you have to travel on the Southeast 'Distress'way to the Central Artery and I've seen those backed up at 8 o'clock at night.

                      How are the public transit options?

                      • MBTA Orange Line to Sullivan Sq. I know Encore is running shuttles to and from there to the casino which is right across the street from the proposed stadium. I would think Kraft et al would do the same thing.
                        One of the biggest running jokes around here is the T and their service.

                          Lol, I kinda figured it wouldn’t be great. Not like Seattle where there’s two stops by the stadium.

                          • U17 World Cup is going on. US is unbeaten through two games, beating South Korea and Burkina Faso, and has already advanced. They play France this weekend.

                            And they’re the only CONCACAF team with a win.

                            Panama and Canada are already eliminated (Panama got a draw at least, Canada with 0-0-3 1 10 -9 line though. Oof.). Mexico still in with a chance but have two losses.

                            • Can't forget that the Big Boys have their Nations League match against Trinidad & Tobago tonight as well. Leg 1 of two.

                              I'm sure the fix is in however, as this is also a qualification round for Copa America. And we all know CONMEBOL needs that sweet, sweet USMNT ticket revenue next Summer...

                                Yeah, it’ll be interesting to see how it goes. The referee is from Jamaica though.

                                Canada-Jamaica is probably the most interesting tie for this round, maybe Costa Rica-Panama as well.
