New England fans’ wait for their home opener is going to wait a couple weeks.
Twenty-three mph winds and negative-10 degree wind chills were on tap for Saturday’s match between the Revolution and Orlando City SC, and the club has decided to move the match.

The new date is Sept. 2, and New England says it will honor all tickets on that date.
From a New England press release:
“All of us involved in this decision believe this is in the best interest of the fans, the players, and the game,” said Revolution President Brian Bilello. “We at the Revolution look forward to seeing all our fans at the Orlando game on September 2.”
It was an off week for both teams, and few were interested in seeing a game in those miserable conditions.
