New England Revolution 2000
2000 Club by Club
Before the start of the 2000 campaign, Sunil Gulati, a longtime executive with Major League Soccer and U.S. Soccer, was named Managing Director of Kraft Soccer, Brian O’Donovan was appointed Chief Operating Officer and former U.S. National Team defender Fernando Clavijo was named head coach. MLS also moved to three four-team divisions and eliminated shootouts to decide games. The Revs finished second in the Eastern Division and earned the club’s second-ever MLS Cup Playoffs berth on the last day of the regular season, finishing with the best record in club history. Wolde Harris scored 15 goals while Imad Baba added nine goals and eight assists and Ted Chronopoulos had five goals. The Revs advanced to the MLS Cup Playoffs, but lost to the Chicago Fire.
