The Revolution began its inaugural campaign under head coach Frank Stapleton, fielding star players Mike Burns, Alexi Lalas, Alberto Naveda, Welton, and, later in the season, Joe-Max Moore. The Revs’ first MLS game was a 3-2 loss at Tampa Bay Mutiny on April 13, 1996, but New England came back a week later to earn its first victory, a 1-0 win over the MetroStars. The following weekend, the Revs prevailed in their first game at Foxboro Stadium, defeating eventual MLS Cup champion D.C. United, 2-1, in a shootout. The Revs missed out on the 1996 MLS playoffs, although Foxboro Stadium was the site of the inaugural MLS Cup.
