Santander Bank, the New England Revolution, and The Esplanade Association will host a free and open-to-the-public Soccer Celebration featuring a New England Revolution Academy public clinic, with a skills and drills demonstration and instruction from athletes and coaches at Boston’s Ebersol Field on the Charles River Esplanade.
The Santander Soccer Celebration will include the chance to meet a host of Revolution players, including star forward and New England native Charlie Davies; ticket giveaway opportunities, FIFA on Xbox with the New England Revolution Battalion; interactive inflatable soccer games; refreshments and more.
The Santander Soccer Scholars program recognizes the academic achievements of New England students. For a chance to participate in the Santander Soccer Scholars program, parents are invited to submit up to 100 words highlighting their child’s finest academic accomplishments from the 2014-2015 school year at www.revolutionsoccer.net/santander-soccer-scholars now through October 1, 2015. Each winner, selected at random, will receive four tickets to a designated home match, one parking pass, and a photo opportunity with Charlie Davies. Depending on their ages, winning children will also have the chance to serve as an Official MLS Ball Kid, be the ball carrier or participate on the Revolution Dream Team, where they will walk onto the field with the Revolution starting lineup and stand with the players during the national anthem. Rules and regulations are also included at the site linked above.
Just in time for back-to-school, the event will also offer parents and kids the opportunity to learn more about the Bank’s Santander Soccer Scholars program, which recognizes the academic achievements of New England youth with an opportunity to win a VIP match day experience throughout the season. Davies serves as the champion and official face of the 2015 Santander Soccer Scholars program and will be signing autographs for fans.
