From the Globe:
Boston wants the New England Revolution to make the city their new home.
With the soccer team looking to build a stadium of its own somewhere in the area, Mayor Thomas M. Menino yesterday sent a letter to Major League Soccer officials expressing his interest in locating it in the city. Menino said he will form a task force of prominent business and sports leaders to look into the issue and identify possible locations.
The new soccer stadiums generally seat between 20,000 and 30,000 fans, fewer than Fenway Park, and often double as concert venues. ***

*** While the stadiums are built to hold 20,000 – 30,000, the Revolution’s most recent game, at the height of World Cup 2006 fever, attracted 66% less people, 11,089 fans.
