New England Patriots Tickets - Description
A charter member of the American Football League, the New England Patriots joined the NFL when the two football leagues merged in 1970. Originally, the team was called the Boston Patriots, but they changed their name after they relocated to Foxborough in 1971. The New England Patriots are one out of two teams that have won three Super Bowls in four years and are the holders of a NFL-record 21-game winning streak. The owner of the New England Patriots is Robert Kraft. Robert Kraft not only owns the New England Patriots, but he also owns the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer. His ownership group also privately financed and owns Gillette Stadium.
Watching the New England Patriots
Gillette Stadium is where all of the magic happens for the New England Patriots football team. Here, people can do everything from tailgate and barbecue in nearby parking lots to shop at some fun high-end stores at Patriots Place. Located in Foxborough, the Stadium and mall are owned by the Kraft Group. You can expect to see excited fans cheering on this team. After all, it’s not just a Massachusetts team but a New England institution.
New England Patriots' Gillette Stadium
Home of the New England Patriots, Gillette Stadium held its Grand Opening in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on September 9, 2002. Its current total seating capacity is 68,756. The bridge and 12-story lighthouse at its entrance make it a unique venue for experiencing athletics and other entertainment. It also features several plazas outside the stadium. Also home to the New England Revolution soccer team, the stadium has hosted other notable sporting events such as the 2002 MLS Cup, the 2003 FIFA Women’s Cup, and the 2008 and 2009 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships.
New England Patriots 2011 Team Outlook
The Patriots had a fantastic season in 2010, losing only two games in the regular season before finally suffering defeat at the hands of the New York Jets in the playoffs. This 14-2 record was the best in the league, and the team's offensive game was incredible. Quarterback Tom Brady completed 3,900 passing yards and made 36 touchdowns with only four interceptions, and the team’s two rookie tight ends wowed everyone with 1,109 combined yards, 16 touchdowns and 87 receptions. These players and several others should excel again this season, and with the addition of offensive tackle Nate Solder and corner back Ras-I Dowling, this team has the tools to make it all the way to the playoffs again in 2011 and perhaps even earn a spot in the Super Bowl.
