SANDY, Utah (Wednesday, June 30, 2010)Real Salt Lake (7-3-3, 24
pts.; 2nd in West) will defend its home turf of Rio Tinto Stadium
once again this Friday, July 2, when the Utah side will look to continue
its eight-game MLS undefeated run and 17-match home unbeaten streak in
League play
against the New England Revolution (3-8-2, 11 pts.; 6th
in East). Kickoff in Sandy for the defending MLS Cup champs’ annual
Independence Day Weekend contest
is set for 8:00 p.m. MT to
accommodate the night’s Post-game Fireworks Celebration, which along
with the cross-conference affair will be presented by Les Olson Company.

Real
Salt Lake and New England will hold the first of their two meetings this season
under the Friday night lights in Sandy, with RSL looking to even up the
all-time regular season series it currently trails by a 3-4-3 margin (2-2-1
in home contests). The RSL faithful will look back quite fondly to the last
match-up between the two sides at Rio Tinto Stadium last April 25, when the
Claret-and-Cobalt used a historic six-goal second half outburst to post a 6-0
win that marked the largest margin of victory and most goals scored in a match
for the Utah side. Real Salt Lake and New England will close out their 2010
home-and-away slate when RSL travels to Foxborough for an early-fall kickoff at
Gillette Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 2.
