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). Gillette Stadium’s seating capacity is 65,878, including 5,876 club seats and 89 luxury suites.

Gillette Stadium opened in 2002, replacing the adjacent Foxboro Stadium. The Patriots have sold out every home game since moving to the stadium—preseason, regular season, and playoffs.

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.

Gillette Stadium offers a huge variety of food options. Including Ale House, serving domestic and craft beer, pretzels, and pizzas. Tenders & Wings serving chicken tenders. Lighthouse Grill offers chicken tenders, hot dogs, steak sandwiches, French Fries, and more.

New England Patriots Tickets

The New England Patriots sell their tickets via Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster is the official ticket outlet for the NFL.

For most teams, Ticketmaster sells tickets on behalf of the team and resells tickets on behalf of ticket sellers. You can tell the difference on the site as the Blue dots are tickets from the team themselves, and the pink dots are from verified sellers.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown may have further selling platform fees added, so take time to read my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the team’s Mobile App to your phone as it contains much Gameday information for the stadium.
