About the New England Revolution Academy
The New England Revolution Academy was founded in 2008. Three players from its first team were developed in its academy: Diego Fagundez, signed in 2010, Scott Caldwell, promoted in 2012, and Zachary Herivaux, signed in 2015.
The younger players part of the Revolution academy train in Franklin, Massachusetts, on the fields of Dean College. That’s also where they live. Their Development Academy home games are either played at the Bayside FC Facility, in East Providence, or, like this weekend, at Gillette Stadium, in Foxborough.
