Home of the New England Patriots, who have won the NFL Super Bowl numerous times, and the New England Revolution national soccer team, Gillette Stadium is a beloved sporting venue. It’s also the home stadium of the University of Massachusetts college football team and regularly hosts live music concerts, having welcomed the likes of Beyoncé, Bon Jovi, Ed Sheeran and The Rolling Stones.
Time your visit for a football or soccer game, when fans flood the stadium to cheer on some of the nation’s greatest players. You can splurge on a luxury suite for a granite-topped wet bar and personal attendants or opt for one of the Putnam Clubs, which both have three-storey ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass walls overlooking the field.
Visit the Patriots ProShop right outside Gillette Stadium to pick up football jerseys and other merchandise. It’s in the same building as The Patriots Hall of Fame, an interactive museum showcasing notable players and team achievements over the years.
Gillette Stadium is about 45 kilometres from Boston and 32 kilometres from Providence, with the Foxboro train station about five minutes’ walk away. You can drive there in 35 minutes from Boston Logan International Airport.
