Revolution-AS Cavaly Concacaf Match Postponed

FOXBORO (CBS) -- There will be no Concacaf match at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday night. The New England Revolution's first leg Round of 16 matchup with AS Cavaly has been pushed back a few days after the Haitian club had issues obtaining the necessary visas to travel.

But there will be soccer in Foxboro this week. Instead of hitting the pitch on Tuesday, the Revs-Cavaly match has been rescheduled to Friday, Feb. 18 at 5:30 p.m. At least it will be a lot warmer Friday night, with temps in the 50s -- rather than the 20s that are expected in New England on Tuesday night.

All tickets for the Leg 1 contest remain valid for the rescheduled date on Friday. Leg 2 is still schedule for Tuesday, Feb. 22 at 6:00 p.m. at Gillette Stadium.

UPDATE: There is a report that Cavaly is still having issues obtaining visas and may be forced to forfeit the match.

The Revolution were also supposed to unveil the club's new jersey on Tuesday at an event at the Gillette Stadium Pro Shop, but the event portion has also been canceled. The jersey will now be unveiled over the club's social media channels on Tuesday, and will be available for purchase both online and at the Pro Shop.
