**My family received tickets to see the New England Revolution at no charge in exchange for this post. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**
Recently, my family got the chance to head over to Gillette Stadium to watch the New England Revolution take on Toronto FC. We were all really excited, especially since this was our first Revs game ever.
In case you’re unfamiliar with who the “Revs” are, the New England Revolution are our professional soccer team. They play at Gillette Stadium, which is the same stadium that the New England Patriots play at.
My family was hosted by Santander Bank and we got to watch the game from the Santander Bank suite – along with a few other Boston area bloggers and their families. The Revs mascot, Slyde, even stopped by to say hi to us during the first half of the game.
Before the game started, we got to go down to the field and watch the players warm up before the game.
Before we headed back upstairs to the suite to watch the game, we all lined up to watch the players make their entrance on to the field. It was fun watching the kids all line up to give the players high fives as they made their way past them.
It was amazing watching the game from the Santander Bank box and it truly made it a memorable experience for our family.
