So the New England Revolution are reaching critical mass as it pertains to the I-95 Cup. Sure it isn’t the Cascadia cup, it isn’t the Rocky Mountain Cup, but gosh darn it lets act like this thing is real. For those not in the loop the I-95 cup consists of the New England Revolution, Philadelphia Union, New York Red Bulls, and D.C. United.
The current standings are as followed:
DC = 9
Revs = 3
Philly = 3
NYRB = 3
Not that impressive with a three way tie for third but let’s looks at the schedule shall we? The Revs 3 of the next 4 matches are against i-95 teams (DC, NYRB, and Philly). Another factor in this is the Revs will be playing all of these three games at home, where the Revs has not allowed a single goal.
While the i-95 Cup may be at present “fictious,” it is a fun barometer of where your team stands amongst, shall we say geographical rivals. I expect the Revs, who are on an unprecidented offensive run, to take control in the I-95 Cup.
