New England Revolution Schedule in Braille

Paul Parravano with the braille schedule

NBP has produced the 2016 season schedule for professional soccer team, the New England Revolution. One of the biggest Revolution fans is NBP Board Member Paul Parravano. "As a blind person, I have worked hard to learn all about soccer, one of the fastest and most challenging games on earth. Both my daughters played lots of soccer, with one becoming a very accomplished player. I follow lots of soccer now, and having ready access to the Revolution schedule in Braille is a huge treat for me."
