FOXBOROUGH — As the Patriots held one of their final practices before leaving for Atlanta and Super Bowl LIII, the Revolution held their final training session in the United States for the next two weeks on Friday afternoon, as the club will fly out of Logan Airport’s Terminal E and head to sunny Spain this evening.
The Revolution and a good portion of the club’s technical staff have a near-seven hour flight to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport before a short, one-hour flight to Malaga, Spain, home of the Marbella Football Center. New England will train and play three exhibition matches while there.
Temperatures for the Revs’ stay on the Spanish Mediterranean coast are expected to swing between the mid-60s and sunny for the start of the trip to high-50s and rain for the end. It was 64 degrees Fahrenheit in Marbella Thursday at 9 a.m., which is the kick-off time of the Revs’ exhibitions with Shanghai Shenhua, Östersunds FK, and Dynamo Kyiv.
According to the club, there are no online streams of the matches planned for the Spain trip. There will, however, be highlight videos posted on Revs’ social media later in the day.
New England is expected to return to the Boston area Feb. 7, spend one day in Foxborough, before heading to Florida for four matches at both the IMG Academy in Bradenton and at Orlando City Stadium.
The club is waiting to hear Orlando City’s plans for streams in Florida.
As has been the club’s habit, several Revolution Academy players
