Hurricane Sandy hit hard. Several areas were completely decimated when Hurricane Sandy smashed into New York and New Jersey. People are without homes, power, fuel and heat. It will take months before infrastructure is back in place and Winter is fast approaching. See below for a better description of what decimated means.
We here in New England barely dodged this. It’s now time to step up and help our fellow Americans in NY/NJ as they struggle to recover from this disaster.
Support the cause by buying a raffle ticket (buy multiple tickets) to help raise money for the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief fund.
We will be raffling items like old school autographed Alexi Lalas posters to stuff like FIFA 13 for PS3. The more tickets you buy for an item…the better chance you have of yours being drawn!
Items currently available for raffle:
***UPDATE 11-8, Revolution Front Office contributes to the raffle! Now available:
10. Any game in 2013, 4 club seats (Revs President Brian B’s seats!) field passes and parking pass!
Get on over to the store and start helping. If you have anything cool you want to donate to the raffle let us know at NErebellion@gmail.com
*100% of money raised is going to American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. Date of drawing to be determined. Please do not select shipping!
Now do your part and spread the word. One ticket will be added to the “bucket” for every ticket you buy. The more tickets you buy the better probability you have of your name being drawn for your item.
Attention Rebels: Sadly the days are numbered for our beloved Revolution’s 2012 season. However just because the season is nearing completion, doesn’t mean we stop supporting our boys in the red white and blue. Which is why we are assembling a taskforce to Montreal to root them on one last time in 2012.
With the longer distance involved with this trip makes group transportation difficult, we are setting up a forward operating base for Rebels with our friends in the Midnight Riders. The location we got is the HolidayInn Montreal Midtown. Of Course if you would prefer to stay anywhere else, please feel free, but we would love to have our entire Rebellion and Revolution family together one last time before 2013.
So feel free to pick up a scarf (AND DON’T FORGET YOUR PASSPORTS!) and follow us as we support the Revs! Be on the look out for further details to come regarding this mission in your email folders, on our facebook and Twitter.
TICKETS: Tickets are $26 and available in our store page. Tickets will be handed to you in Montreal, so please don’t select shipping. Deadline is 10/12 for tickets!
HOTEL: The Holiday Inn Midtown Montreal. Call now and make your reservations under the block name “New England Rebellion” for a room rate of $119.

Some updates since our conference call with Red Bull Arena security
Update: The bus will be dropping us all off directly at the bar.
We need to all enter at Gate C at 2:30pm. So if you are not coming on the bus with us you need to be at O’Donnell’s by 2pm at the latest to get your tickets/enter with us.
Banners, drums, and flags under 6 feet are allowed.
Streamers, smoke and flares are NOT allowed. Do not bring them. One stupid, selfish action can have devastating long-term effects on our group.
We will wait 15-20 minutes in the stadium after the match to let the crowd thin out, and then we will be escorted back to the bus and will make our return trip just like last year. Security was fantastic to us last year.
Reminder: Banshee will be open at 6am for breakfast for those meeting there.
If you are not at your pickup location at the times listed we will be leaving WITHOUT you. GET THERE EARLY! We like you; it’s just we don’t like you enough to inconvenience 150 people
As always, please let us know if there are any questions or suggestions. You should have already emailed us and told us where you are getting picked up.
Long story short, stick with the herd and we’ll take care of the rest.
See you Saturday!

If you have made a flag and/or tifo you are awesome. Email us the design and bring it to the white tent on Saturday so we can get it into the stadium for you.
Go buy a crap load of streamers. Now.
*Remember when you get into the Fort, to push up to the front and pack it in shoulder to shoulder with your fellow Rebels. It looks and sounds better. Make it happen!
