The Revs will take the field against Chelsea FC after defeating the San Jose Earthquakes, 3-1, on Saturday, May 11.

The match will be played against a backdrop of ongoing antisemitism and discrimination around the world, with proceeds from the friendly being donated to initiatives combatting antisemitism and all hate crimes. The initial idea for the match was developed by Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich and the Kraft family, both of whom have already pledged $1 million donations toward the cause.
