New England Revolution to Host Fourth Annual “Bowl for a Goal” Presented by Arbella Insurance on August 1

Tickets for the Revolution’s charitable bowling event are now on sale

Foxborough, MA – The New England Revolution Charitable Foundation’s hallmark annual event Bowl for a Goal presented by Arbella Insurance (#BowlforaGoal) – will return for a fourth year on Wednesday, August 1 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. ET at Splitsville Luxury Lanes in Patriot Place. Bowl for a Goal provides fans with the opportunity to spend an evening alongside Revolution players, coaches, on-air talent, and local celebrities. All profits from the evening benefit Special Olympics Massachusetts in its mission to provide year-round sports training and competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities. General admission tickets are now on sale for $35 and can be purchased online here.

“We look forward to reuniting the Revolution family, supporters, partners, and our friends at Special Olympics for another special evening celebrating inclusiveness,” said Revolution President Brian Bilello. “This event has become a cornerstone for the club and we couldn’t ask for better partner than Special Olympics Massachusetts and all of the athletes on our Unified team. We’re also grateful to our partners at Arbella Insurance, as this event has continued to grow over the last four years. We look forward to another successful outing this summer.”

Emceed by 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Rob ‘Hardy’ Poole, the event will feature a live performance by Massachusetts native and singer/songwriter Ashley Jordan (ashleyjordanmusic.com), who won the 2017 Boston Music Award for Country Artist of the Year. Bowl for a Goal will also provide music from complimentary food and drinks, various activities for adults and children, and a silent auction and raffle.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Revolution and the Special Olympics of Massachusetts for the fourth consecutive year on Bowl for a Goal,” said Gayle O’Connell, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of the Arbella Insurance Group. “This year is especially meaningful as the Special Olympics celebrates its 50thanniversary. It’s incredible to see firsthand how their work is supporting children and young adults with intellectual disabilities and we’re proud to be able to help this event grow and continue to make an impact.”

The silent auction and raffle feature a diverse collection of exclusive memorabilia, including the following:

  • Signed Revolution jerseys from several chart-topping musical acts
  • Boston sports memorabilia including signed Revs, Patriots, Red Sox, and Celtics jerseys
  • A customized New England Revolution Xbox One with games
  • One-of-a-kind experiences including game and concert ticket packages

In each of the last three years, the Revolution raised more than $60,000 for Special Olympics through Bowl for a Goal. The partnership between two organizations extends far beyond the fundraising events, as they have again teamed up for a summer full of events aimed at promoting an environment of inclusivity and friendly competition through the power of sports.

“Special Olympics is celebrating the 50th anniversary of our movement and it is in no small part because of the support we have received from our partners. The New England Revolution are a prime example of this,” said Mary Beth McMahon, President and CEO of Special Olympics Massachusetts. “They not only host fundraisers like the 2018 Bowl for a Goal presented by Arbella Insurance, but they work to integrate Special Olympics athletes into the culture in Foxboro. Each year a Unified soccer team takes the field at Gillette Stadium as part of the MLS Exchange program, the Revs roll out the red carpet and host a signing day, media/training day with the first team, and create and share digital content for the Unified team – just like with the first team. With more partners like the New England Revolution, Special Olympics is well on our way to being around for another 50 years!”

The Revolution field a Special Olympics Unified team, which sees athletes with and without intellectual disabilities sign contracts with the club, train with first-team players, and play in a Unified match against the Philadelphia Union’s Unified squad. On May 16, the athletes met with Head Coach Brad Friedel, signed their contracts with the club, and received authentic Revolution kits. The Unified match will take place at Gillette Stadium on August 11, following an MLS matchup between the Revolution and Union.

Revolution sign local talent as first official eMLS competitor

Foxborough, MA – The New England Revolution have signed John Oliveira, known by his gamertag as JKO1707, as the club’s first official eMLS competitor. Oliveira earned his contract by excelling in the club’s open tournament last month and will represent the Revolution in the inaugural eMLS Cup at PAX East in Boston from April 5-8, 2018.

In eMLS Cup, Oliveira will compete against 18 other representatives from MLS clubs for a chance to qualify for the EA Sports FIFA 18 Global Series Playoff on the road to the FIFA eWorld Cup. For complete details on eMLS Cup, please visit MLSSoccer.com.

“We are pleased to welcome John as the club’s first eMLS competitor and are excited to have found such a talented player right in our own backyard here in Massachusetts,” Revolution President Brian Bilello said. “We always aim to put out a competitive and exciting product on the field, and now with JKO1707 representing the Revs, we’ll look to do the same on the virtual pitch at eMLS Cup.”

“I am thrilled to be representing the Revolution and to be a part of eMLS,” Oliveira said. “I’m a very competitive person and am committed to winning, and I know the club shares that goal. I want to not only be the best player in eMLS, but also the most exciting for fans to watch and cheer for.”

Oliveira, 24, joins the Revs with a passion for soccer and an impressive list of achievements in his young competitive gaming career. He brings more than 13 years of FIFA experience and started his 2017 competitive campaign by topping his group and finishing in the top-six overall at the 2017 Miami Regional. He followed up that performance with another top-six finish at the Vancouver Regional.

In his most recent tournament, Oliveira competed in the FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC) Regional Qualifier in Los Angeles. He advanced out of the group and finished one win shy of qualifying for the World Finals in London, but finished the tournament ranked among the top eight in EA SPORTSTM FIFA 17 in the region (North, South, and Central America).

Oliveira, who spent his early years living in Brazil, was raised in Oak Bluffs, Mass. on Martha’s Vineyard and will soon be attending the University of Massachusetts Boston. A former soccer player himself, Oliveira’s passion for the game translated from the pitch to the screen after an ankle injury, leading him to continue his pursuit of competitive soccer through FIFA.
