Massachusetts' Major League Soccer team is getting a new, $35 million training facility.
The New England Revolution broke ground on the 68-acre facility in Foxborough on Monday, according to a statement from the team. Located just outside of Gillette Stadium in the surrounding wetlands, the center will become the new headquarters for the team and its operations.
Revolution Training Center is privately financed and will include 42,000-square-feet of buildings and three full-sized soccer fields, the team says.
Construction began with the groundbreaking ceremony and is scheduled to be completed in summer 2019.
“This is a very exciting milestone in the history of the Revolution," said investor-operators Robert and Jonathan Kraft in the statement. "This state-of-the-art training facility will allow us to develop our players to their full potential while at the same time providing a platform for our young players to train alongside our first team and develop into the stars of the future."
