Revolution acquire 6-foot-5 goalkeeper Henrich Ravas

The New England Revolution addressed their most obvious participant personnel deficiency on Saturday with the signing of goalkeeper Henrich Ravas.

Ravas was acquired from the Polish membership Widzew Lodz for an undisclosed payment and signed to an MLS contract by way of the 2026 season with a staff choice for 2027. Ravas, 26, is a rangy 6-5, 192-pound native of Senica, Slovakia and he’ll occupy a world roster spot in 2024.

Ravas appeared in 61 video games over three seasons for Widzew Lodz and in 161 in seven skilled seasons. He can also be a member of the Slovakia National staff.

“Henrich Ravas is an experienced goalkeeper who has performed well over his three seasons in Poland, showing progress each year to develop into one of the league’s best shot stoppers,” stated Revolution Sporting Director Curt Onalfo. “His physical traits and top flight European experience should allow for a seamless transition to MLS.”

The void on the Revolution’s again finish was created when Serbian Djordje Petrovic, a 2023 MLS All-Star and a favourite to win Goalkeeper of the Year, transferred to Chelsea FC of the English Premier League on Aug. 25. Petrovic began 22 video games with a 11-4-7 file, seven clear sheets, and 1.23 objectives towards common.

The Revolution acquired keeper Tomas Vaclik of the Czech Republic as a backstop on Aug. 26 however he by no means noticed the pitch. Petrovic’s back-ups, Earl Edwards Jr. (3-4-3) and Jacob Jackson (1-1-0), had been ineffective within the closing months.
