Fan satisfaction is at the forefront of Gillette Stadium’s design, with unobstructed views from the entire length of each of its wide concourses ensuring a great view of the field from practically anywhere inside the turnstiles. Additional gathering areas, such as the end zone plazas, offer alternative viewing where fans can also gather to socialize before, during and after games. Once at their seats, guests relax in theater-style chairs, each one complete with a drink holder.

For the ultimate in creature comforts, the Putnam Club offers members access to 120,000 square feet of space to enjoy. In addition to the Club areas, the stadium’s 89 luxury suites in the EMC suite level are among the largest in the NFL, ranging from 800 to 2,700 square feet. Each suite features luxurious furnishings as well as private bars and restrooms.

Gillette Stadium celebrates New England’s heritage with a unique display of local flavor. A stylized lighthouse and bridge greet fans entering from Patriot Place Plaza and create the stadium’s signature view. The coastal heritage of the region is represented in a seascape scene that complements the bridge and lighthouse and flanks the players’ entrance to the field. Guests can experience a unique view of the action from atop the bridge, which connects the east and west concourses at the base of the lighthouse.

Fun Facts

Field Flip
Following a Patriots loss to the Jets in 2006, Gillette Stadium removed its natural grass surface while the team was on the road in Green Bay, and installed a new FieldTurf surface before the Pats returned home to face Chicago.

Screen Size
It would take 1,700 37” TVs to fill the stadium’s HDTV video board in the south end zone, which is the largest HDTV video screen in an outdoor NFL stadium.

The Height of Design
The stadium’s signature lighthouse in the north end zone rises 10 stories above the playing field, but is dwarfed by the height of the stadium itself, which is 16 stories tall.

Getting to the Top
Walking at three miles per hour, it takes 8-10 minutes to reach the top of the northeast ramp, which is 1,820 long and rises 180 feet from the plaza below.

No Bad Seat
Every single seat in Gillette stadium is focused exactly toward midfield to provide optimum sight lines.

Lap of Luxury
The east and west Putnam Clubs at Gillette Stadium are each larger than a football field, with cathedral ceilings three stories high and floor-to-ceiling glass walls providing end zone to end zone views of the field.

The Suite Life
The stadium’s 89 luxury suites each have granite-topped wet bars, marbled bathrooms and personal attendants.

A Light Snack
On a typical game day, Patriots fans eat more than one ton of Italian sausage and warm up with 186 gallons of clam chowder.

Quite a Team
Up to 5,000 staff members are necessary to operate Gillette Stadium for a Patriots game, at a ratio of one worker for every 13.7 fans.

Lots of Parking
There are more than twice as many parking spaces in Gillette Stadium’s parking lots as there are parking meters in all of Boston.

Worth the Weight
Approximately 6,300 pieces of blue steel form the structure of Gillette Stadium, weighing in at 16,000 tons.

What a Waste
The construction of Gillette Stadium required the removal of 90,000 cubic yards of blasted bedrock, 310,000 cubic yards of total excavated material and the demolition of the old Foxboro stadium and racetrack.

Concrete Example
The foundation of Gillette Stadium consists of 17,500 cubic yards of concrete, enough to build a sidewalk from here to Boston… on both sides of the street.
