One of the most important American football stadiums at just a short drive from the city. Fancy a visit?
For lovers of American football
The extremely popular stadium of the New England Patriots, the Foxborough town NFL team, is just 22 miles (35 kilometres) from Boston. If you’re a fan of American football this journey will be over in a blink of the eye. The stands of the Gillette Stadium can accommodate around 67,000 spectators. The New England Patriots are members of the Eastern Division of the National Football League. They are the second team ever to have won three Super Bowls in four years, between 2001 and 2004, and are also only the seventh team in the history of the NFL to win two Super Bowls in a row, in 2003 and 2004. The stadium’s synthetic grass pitch is shared with the New England Revolution of the MLS, the highest soccer league in the USA and Canada. The complex, designed by architect John Boles, opened in 2002.
