MLS Cup 2002 awarded to CMGI Field

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- CMGI Field, the new home of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and Major League Soccer's New England Revolution, will host the 2002 MLS Cup.

This marks the third time that the MLS champion will be crowned in New England, as the league's inaugural Cup in 1996 and MLS Cup 1999 were each played at Foxboro Stadium.

CMGI Field will be christened on Saturday, May 11 when the Revolution host the Dallas Burn.

"Major League Soccer is excited to showcase our MLS Cup championship game at this incredible new facility," said MLS executive vice president Mark Noonan. "Soccer fans throughout the northeast corridor have turned out in large numbers for major soccer events in Foxboro, and we look forward to another thrilling Cup in New England."

The Kraft Family, owners of the Patriots and Revolution, own and operate CMGI Field, a $325-million, 68,000-seat facility.
