Welcome to Gillette Stadium, New England’s premier sports, entertainment and event venue. Learn more about everything Gillette Stadium has to offer.



The beginning of the 2023 NFL season marked the completion of the most dramatic Gillette Stadium improvements since its opening in 2002. The $250 million project completely transformed Gillette Stadium’s appearance, greatly enhancing the event day experience for fans. It includes the Gillette Stadium Lighthouse, a new signature 22-story lighthouse with a 360-degree observation deck open to guests year-round. The project also features the largest outdoor curved-radius videoboard at a sports venue in the country, the G-P Atrium, a new 50,000 square foot function space overlooking the game field, and the newly reimagined Plaza. The improvements also include the Ticketmaster entry canopy, a remodeled Row of Honor, the Bud Light Celebration Beer Hall, the Pepsi Grab & Go, connectivity on the Upper concourse for movement east to west, increased restroom capacity, and permanent bars and concession locations featuring new product offerings.

In addition to these new amenities, Gillette Stadium features gathering areas including the DraftKings Sports Zone and the Commons on the Main Concourse, and the Encore Boston Harbor Terrace and the JetBlue Landings on the Upper Concourse, offering communal spaces where fans can gather to socialize before, during and after games. Additionally, the Cross Insurance Club, which runs the length of the stadium on both sidelines, offers members access to 120,000 square feet of indoor space and premium outdoor seats located between midfield and the 20-yard line to enjoy. Finally, the stadium’s Suite Levels are home to 92 luxury suites that are among the largest in the NFL, ranging from 800 to 2,700 square feet. Each suite is fully furnished with everything needed for a top-tier event experience and features in-suite catering and beverage service, restrooms and a dedicated suite attendant.

Fun Facts

Continued Investment: The Kraft family invested $300 million in Gillette Stadium enhancements in the venue’s first 20 years. The new north end enhancements, coupled with the 2021 south end renovations, marks an additional $250 million investment.

The Height of Design: The stadium’s new, more prominent signature lighthouse in the north end zone rises 22 stories above the playing field, towering over the stadium itself, which is 16 stories tall. The 218-foot lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in the United States.

New View: The new lighthouse features a 360-degree observation deck with views of neighboring Foxborough center, the Boston and Providence skylines and beyond.

Long Way to the Top: The Lantern Room at the top of the lighthouse can be accessed via a 34-second elevator ride. There are also 372 interior stairs.

On the Big Screen: The new north end zone videoboard measures 22,000 square feet, making it the largest outdoor curved-radius videoboard at a sports venue in the country. Combined with the south end zone videoboard, the new half-acre north end zone board gives Gillette Stadium three-quarters of an acre of video scoreboards, providing ample space to enjoy game action, replays, statistics and more.

Bridging the Gap: The new north end hospitality and function spaces bridge the gap between the east and west Cross Insurance Clubs, the Suite Levels and the upper concourse, giving all levels of the stadium 360-degree connectivity. These new spaces are highlighted by the G-P Atrium, the largest Patriots game day hospitality space to open since 2002, as well as four new luxury suites.

Quite a Club: The east and west Cross Insurance 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 92 luxury suites each have in-suite catering and beverage service, private restrooms and a dedicated suite attendant.
