History of Gillette Stadium
The New England Patriots played at the Foxboro Stadium from 1971-2001. The stadium was funded privately on a small budget and continued to not bring in enough money to keep an NFL team in New England. The team slowly fell into debt (approximately $126 million) and ticket sales shortly failed after. The team was purchased two times by different owners, still failed, and they soon realized that they needed to build a new stadium in order to keep an NFL team in New England.
Discussion soon started on where the new stadium should be built. They were given offers in Connecticut and Boston, Massachusetts. In the end they decided to keep the stadium in Foxboro. On April 18, 2000 plans for the new stadium were revealed. Ground was broken a little over a month later on March 24, 2000. The new stadium would hold 68,000 and cost $325 million, which would be privately funded.
Gillette Stadium is known for its food safety. The Gillette Stadium food service is run in-house instead of being outsourced like most NFL teams. The stadium is also home for the New England Revolution of the MLS. It also holds several college and high school football games there as well.
