Patriots reveal where championship banners will hang after stadium renovations

New, comments

The Patriots have room for more, too!

The New England Patriots have been making minor stadium adjustments to account for what the team calls a “high-class problem” of having too many championship banners.

The team raised the Gillette Stadium sign to create space below the sign for the banners and the team is in the process of moving them into position.

The Patriots will apparently line up their five banners in the middle underneath the sign and that will be a great place for the foreseeable future since my expert MS Paint skill shows that there is room for a total of seven banners in this space:

So the Patriots should be fine until the year 2019 when the team will have to start making more renovations. Although I guess the team could theoretically put banners back on the concrete to the sides of the Gillette Stadium sign, where the banners had previously been flying:

So maybe the Patriots will be fine for the rest of Tom Brady’s career. Maybe.

At least the banners are no longer just hanging out by the concourse:
