Champions League Begins for Revs

Who: New England Revolution at Joe Public F.C. (Trinidad & Tobago Pro League)
What: CONCACAF Champions League Preliminary Round
Where: Marvin Lee Stadium, Tunapuna, Trinidad and Tobago
When: Tuesday, 8:00 p.m. (Fox Soccer Channel)

The New England Revolution are set to kick off the inaugural CONCACAF Champions League Tuesday night with a Preliminary Round match against Trinidad's Joe Public F.C. Coming off a 1-1 draw in Toronto in league play, the Revs are still searching for just their second ever victory in meaningful competition outside of the United States and their first in over five years.

Tuesday may prove their best opportunity yet with the Revs clear favorites to take the series against the 2007 Caribbean Football Union Club Championship runner-up. Joe Public has twice before faced MLS completion in the COCACAF Champions Cup, though both times on U.S. soil. In 1998, they fell 8-0 to D.C. United and the following year fell 2-0 to the Chicago Fire.
