Now that football season is finished, the other inhabitants of Gillette Stadium are just starting to get ready for their own business. And in that vein, the Revolution will as an organization be busy over the next week building support -- and, specifically, choosing supporters -- for their efforts in the coming season.

Wednesday and Thursday nights, the local MLS entry will hold the final rounds of auditions to join its Rev Girls promotional team, first taking three from the Boston area, then three more from the Providence area a night later.

Wednesday's contest will be held at The Greatest Bar on Friend Street in Boston, from 9-11, with Dirty Water TV's Sophia Goulet hosting the festivities, and the panel of guest judges including Olympic judo champion Kayla Harrison, 2013 Miss Massachusetts Amanda Narciso, Melissa from Hot 96.9 FM, and WEEI producer Ben Kichen. They'll be watching as Allison Bergeron (Nashua, N.H.), Brandi Bishop (Medford), Lauren Laperriere (Gardner), Alexandra Paz (Chestnut Hill), Michelle Spiry (Sturbridge), and Jennifer Swain (Concord) answer Revolution trivia, participate in a question-and-answer session, and interact with fans at the bar.

Thursday night the contest moves to the Rí Rá in Providence, where Adrianna Coelho (Westborough), Meghan Larrat (Saunderstown, R.I.), Jamie McIntyre (Cranston, R.I.), Jenna Pare (Tiverton, R.I.), Margarita Propper (East Providence, R.I.), and Kelly Villa (Pawtucket, R.I.) compete for the three remaining spots on the Rev Girls roster. Their event will be emceed by former American Idol contender Erika Van Pelt, and judged by WPRI Rhode Show host Will Gilbert, 2013 Miss Rhode Island Jessica Marfeo, the Providence Journal's Jena Pelletier, and Jessica Schiano from 92 PRO-FM.

Both nights fans are welcome to view the contest and cheer on their favorites in an effort to influence the judges' decisions.

Then next week, the players themselves hit the bars to party with the people as the club embarks on a pub tour between preseason tilts. There's no cover charge for any of the events, and each will include a chance for those in attendance to win tickets to the Revolution's March 22 home opener.

The tour's first stop is Feb. 11, at The Banshee in Boston, where Jose Goncalves, Lee Nguyen, and Chris Tierney are scheduled to appear from 7-9 p.m. That event is 21-plus, though the next two nights are open to fans of all ages.

The first is Feb. 12 at the CBS Scene in Foxborough, which runs from 6-8 p.m., with Diego Fagundez, Dimitry Imbongo, and Saer Sene all slated to be on hand. And finally, on Feb. 13, it's back to Providence and the Rí Rá from 7-9, with Kevin Alston, Scott Caldwell, and Andrew Farrell all signed up to participate.

Then it's back to business, as the team heads to Arizona for three preseason matches in the span of a week before kicking things off for real at Houston on March 8.
