Foxborough is a suburb of Boston – the team was known as the Boston Patriots until moving in 1971. Their home field, Gillette Stadium, is located at 1 Patriot Place in Foxborough; it is also home to the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer and the University of Massachusetts Minutemen football team in the Mid-American Conference. Opened in 2002, Gillette Stadium has a seating capacity of more than 68,700 for football.
A unique feature of the Gillette Stadium area is Patriot Place, a shopping, dining, and entertainment facility adjacent to the stadium. Featuring more than 1.3 million square feet of retail space, tenants include Bass Pro Shops, Trader Joe’s, Ulta, Bar Louie, CBS Scene Restaurant and Bar, Hollister, Olive Garden, and Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill. The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon is the team's hall of fame and interactive museum; the Hall is scheduled to be open for the Bills/Patriots game.
