The New England Revolution have elevated rookie Ben Reveno from their MLS NEXT Pro roster to the senior squad, signing the defender to a one-year MLS contract with two additional option years.
Reveno was initially picked up by the Eastern Conference side during the second round of the 2022 MLS SuperDraft, making the 52nd overall pick after two years of collegiate soccer at UC Irvine and three seasons at UCLA.
“The Revolution’s Pro Player Pathway is designed to give players like Ben the necessary tools they need to develop in our elite environment and prove themselves at the highest levels, and Ben has seized his opportunities,” technical director Curt Onalfo said in a release.
“It gives us great pride to now have six players on the first team who entered our system with Revolution II, worked hard and earned their spot on the MLS roster.”
Reveno stands as the sixth player to join New England Revolution’s Major League Soccer squad after first rising with the Revolution II, alongside homegrown midfielders Esmir Bajraktarevic and Noel Buck.
The defender made eight appearances for the Revolution II in the inaugural MLS NEXT Pro, contributing to four clean sheets before making his senior debut during the US Open Cup match against NYCFC last week.
