In 1994, Robert Kraft bought the New England Patriots for a then-record sum of $172 million. The purchase has definitely paid off for Kraft, as his team sold out every single home game since: 239 straight games over the course of 23 seasons (including preseason, regular season and postseason).
Tickets for the Patriots' games have obviously been a hot commodity the last 20+ years.
Of course, this holds true for the upcoming 2016 season as well. As the team announced yesterday, a limited number of individual game tickets will be put on the market on Thursday, July 14, 10:00 am ET – and one needs to buy quickly in order to get some.
The New England Patriots annually cap season ticket sales, leaving a limited number in reserve for Patriots fans who wish to purchase individual game tickets. All ticket orders will be processed exclusively through Ticketmaste. Tickets will NOT be sold at the Gillette Stadium Ticket Office. Ticket orders can be completed online at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone by calling 800-745-3000. Visa, a proud sponsor of the National Football League and the New England Patriots, will once again be the only form of payment accepted to purchase Patriots tickets. Purchases will be limited to four tickets per game. In recent years, all tickets to regular season games sold out within minutes.
Furthermore, the Patriots will once again use variable pricing for individual games. This means that, for example, tickets for the team's preseason game against the New Orleans Saints will be cheaper than the Patriots' rematch of Super Bowl XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks.
The four categories are as follows:
Make sure to be ready on July 14 to have a chance to see the Patriots live in 2016.
