March 15, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New England Revolution News Release

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution (0-1-1, 1 pt.) will travel north of the border for a meeting with Toronto FC (1-0-0, 3 pts.) in the clubs' first of two matchups this season on Sunday, March 17 at BMO Field. The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised locally on NBC Sports Boston, with Brad Feldman and Paul Mariner calling the action. Authenticated subscribers may also stream the match on and on the NBC Sports app. The contest airs locally on the radio with 98.5 The Sports Hub broadcasting the action in English and 1260 AM Nossa Radio providing Portuguese commentary.

The Revs enter Sunday's contest with a 13-7-9 record in the all-time series with Toronto, and will be seeking a fourth-ever win at BMO Field.
