The Gillette Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located in Foxborough, Massachusetts, which is about 22 miles southwest of downtown Boston. It serves as the home stadium and administrative offices for both the New England Patriots of the National Football League (NFL) and the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer (MLS).

The stadium was originally known as CMGI Field before the naming rights were bought by Gillette after the “dot-com” bust. Although Gillette was acquired by Procter & Gamble in 2005, the stadium retains the Gillette name.
