Local Soccer: Boston City FC to call Revere, Medford home in 2019

Fourth-division Boston City FC announced Wednesday that it will play its 2019 home games in the National Premier Soccer League at two venues just to the north of Boston.

Revere’s Harry Della Russo Stadium and Hormel Stadium on the banks of the Mystic River in Medford will share hosting duties for the Lions this year, with the Medford site hosting two of the seven home games.

"We are so excited to provide our loyal fans with matches in both Revere and Medford," BCFC managing director Craig Tornberg said in a statement. "Performing in these venues will provide our supporters with quality facilities and great access to our club.

"We start a fresh NPSL season with great optimism and believe that local soccer fans will continue to enjoy the entertainment we offer and the highest level of soccer available in this area at a very affordable price.”

The NPSL Northeast Division’s season is expected to begin in late April/early May, with the Lions’ home opener slated for Saturday, May 4 at the Revere location. The league is underway in other parts of the country.
