NFL Preseason: New England Patriots vs. New York Giants
Ranked among the top 10 venues in the world by Billboard magazine, Gillette Stadium is a destination on its own in the Boston and Providence areas.
Gillette Stadium is a world-class multi-purpose arena that is located in Foxborough, Massachusetts, which is situated right between Boston and Providence, RI. This famous venue is home to live sporting events by way of New England Revolution tickets and New England Patriots tickets. It first opened its doors in 2002 for a New England Revolution soccer game. Since then, it has hosted many different sports, music, and other special events.
While it is most often used as a sports venue, Gillette Stadium is known as a must-play stop for major national music tours. When it first opened in 2002, The Rolling Stones played the stage. Since then, countless big-name musicians have headlined this arena, including Bruce Springsteen, U2, Taylor Swift, and many, many more.
There are plenty of seating and standing options for fans to enjoy. Members of the Putnam Club can enjoy 120,000 square feet of space, for a luxurious game viewing experience. There are also 89 luxury suites in the EMC suite level, which are some of the largest in the MLS/NFL, ranging in size from 800 feet to a staggering 2,700 per suite. Each one of these decadent suites has at least one private bar, restrooms, and extravagant furnishings for each guest to enjoy. If you want to make your visit to Gillette Stadium especially memorable, consider booking one of these rooms in advance.
Getting There and Getting In
Parking & Directions
Planning your visit to Gillette Stadium will depend largely on the event that you are going to see. Because it is approximately 25 miles from both Boston and Providence, driving a car or riding with someone else is your best bet. Unfortunately, New England Revolution games do not have the same MPTA commuter train service that Patriots games offer. Because of this lack of public transportation, you will need to either drive or arrange a carpool. The positive aspect of this is that Revolution games do have free parking, and they also do not draw nearly as much traffic as Patriots games. Check the official website for directions according to your location.
