Rongen led the Revolution to the club’s first-ever berth in the MLS Cup Playoffs, where the team fell to defending MLS Cup champion D.C. United. New England also led the league in attendance, with 342,762 fans watching Revolution soccer in 1997. The team made some notable acquisitions during Rongen’s first year, including goalkeeper Walter Zenga and forward Giuseppe Galderisi.
