On Sunday, June 22, the New England Revolution will host a World Cup Watch Party at House of Blues on Lansdowne Street when the USA take on Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo in World Cup Group play. The match will be shown on a large screen on the stage.
The U.S. Men's National Team vanquished Ghana 2-1 in its first World Cup action on Monday and Portugal is next on the agenda. Currently, the USA stand second in Group G after Germany, who it will face on Thursday, June 26.
Admission to the event is free and the watch party is expected to reach capacity. A similar watch party at House of Blues for the USA-England match drew 1,200 fans. The doors open at 5 p.m. and the World Cup match kicks off at 6 p.m. Fans coming to the watch party are encouraged to arrive early and the first 200 people through the House of Blues doors will receive a free “For Club and Country” scarf as a gift.
Revolution players will be among the many VIPs in attendance, along with president Brian Bilello and Revolution broadcast announcer Brad Feldman.
A raffle and silent auction featuring signed merchandise from around the soccer world will be held at the event, with all proceeds benefiting AmericaSCORES Boston, which uses youth development programming based around soccer, academics and the arts to inspire Boston youth to have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.
