That's the New England Revolution, as in the Major League Soccer team that has been to the MLS Cup final six times and is the current holder of the 2008 SuperLiga Championship. 

The Cary-based Carolina RailHawks of the rival USL-1 professional soccer league announced today that the Revolution will travel here for a preseason friendly on Saturday, March 14, at 7 p.m.

It will be the first annual "Community Shield Match," and the Revolution's players will participate in community events during their stay. The Foxboro, Mass.-based team has been home to some of America's most famous players, including Alexi Lalas, John Harkes, Eric Wynalda and Clint Dempsey (who is currently making a name for himself playing for Fulham in the English Premier League--click here to see his two dazzling goals against Chelsea last month). 

The Revolution finished third in its division last season in the MLS.
