The New England Revolution announced today that they will participate in the Desert Diamond Cup as part of their preseason preparations.
The tournament, which takes place at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Ariz. and includes the Revolution, Chicago Fire, Chivas USA, Colorado Rapids, Real Salt Lake, and FC Tucson, will be played from Feb. 19 to March 1.
There was a rumor earlier in the summer that the Revolution would go on tour in Indonesia as part of their preseason tour. Those rumors appear to be false, as the Revolution will compete in their third-ever Desert Diamond Cup.
The Revolution will start the tournament against Real Salt Lake on Feb. 19. They will then play Chivas USA (Feb. 22) and the Colorado Rapids (Feb. 29). There will be an additional game to decide the final placement of the six participating teams.
MLS has not released schedule information for the 2014 regular season, though it is expected to start in early to mid March.

Google Translate is not perfect -- we're aware of that -- but it is quite good at getting the main points of the story across. We've successfully used it on The Big Picture, Boston.com's extremely popular world photography site. I'd be eager to hear your feedback on its use in Corner Kicks, in whatever language.
