On Tuesday afternoon, Gillette Stadium officials provided updates on the current stadium renovation and improvement project that has been going on since late 2021. The announcement included the news that new parts of the stadium are expected to be open for the Patriots’ regular season home opener on September 10.
“We are thrilled to open the renovated parts of the stadium for the New England Patriots regular season home game on September 10 where we will welcome our Season Ticket Members into a space that was carefully redesigned with the fan experience in mind. We also look forward to providing an upgraded experience for New England Revolution fans and the many others that will visit the stadium for future concerts and events,” Chief Marketing Officer of Kraft Sports + Entertainment Jen Ferron said via a statement from the team.
“Throughout the planning of this project, we worked hard to positively impact every guest that comes to Gillette Stadium. From arrival to departure and through 360-degree access around the building, new food and beverage locations and menu offerings, premium spaces, the curved-radius video board and more, the fan journey has been enhanced,” said Jim Nolan, Chief Operating Officer of Kraft Sports + Entertainment. “We are eager for guests at Patriots and Revolution games and concerts and special events to experience and enjoy these transformational upgrades as we continue with our next twenty years in the stadium.”
Among the new elements coming to the stadium, which make up a $250 million investment in the stadium, are a field-level beer hall, updated concourse and club levels, and a new lighthouse that stands 22 stories with a 360-degree observation deck at the top. In addition to the timeline update, the Patriots provided renderings of what the new parts of the stadium, first opened in 2002, will look like. You can check those out below…
