New England Patriots

Spending at Patriots games in 2023 will look a little different than it did last year. On Wednesday, the team informed season ticket holders of changes in pricing to both tickets and parking.

Starting with the ticket prices – Gillette Stadium will see a stadium-wide ticket price increase for the first time since 2008 (there have been individual section price increases since). The message didn’t say how much the increase will be.

  • In 2023, the Patriots are scheduled to play nine total home games – eight regular season games and one preseason game. Their scheduled ninth ‘home’ game will be an international game played in Germany. Season ticket holders have already been credited for that game, according to the message from the team.

    While ticket prices are going up, parking prices are decreasing – or going away all together. The team outlined three new parking options, noted that the ultimate goal of all three is to decrease traffic on game days.

    To start, the team is making parking free “in all stadium-owned general lots located across from the stadium on Route 1.” The stated goal of his measure is to cut down on vehicles needing to stop at the gate and pay, therefore lessening the traffic. In the past, parking in those lots cost $50.

  • In addition, the team is also expanding the ‘delayed-release’ lot, which was first implemented in 2018 as a traffic-limiting tool. In the past, this lot has let fans park for free, as long as they don’t leave until 75 minutes after the game ends. That lot will still be free, but now each car will receive at $50 Visa gift card each game. Both above options are open to any ticket holder, not just season ticket members.

    Finally, season ticket holders who want to park in one of the stadium-adjacent lots can purchase a season parking pass that will be prepaid, electronic, and transferable. According to the message from the team the price of those passes have been “dramatically reduced” to $225 dollars for the season, or $25 per game.

    Full details of all the parking changes can be found here.

    This is the second time that season ticket holders have heard from the team this offseason. At the end of the regular season in January, owner Robert Kraft sent a letter promising “critical evaluations” on the football side of things, in order to give fans “an improved product on the field.”
