In 10 days, the New England Patriots will play for their record-tying sixth Super Bowl title, when the team takes on the Philadelphia Eagles on the game's biggest stage. On Wednesday, ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reported when the team will leave the New England area to fly to Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII: The Patriots will travel on Monday, January 29.
The trip to Minnesota is not the only important date on the AFC champions' agenda that day, though. Before leaving, players and coaches will be part of a Super Bowl send-off rally at Foxboro's Gillette Stadium. The event is free and will start at 9:00 a.m. ET. Just like last year's, it will take place at NRG Plaza outside The Hall at Patriots Place.
Monday's event will not be the first one of its kind as the team usually holds send-off rallies when it travels to play the Super Bowl. As noted above, when the Patriots traveled to Houston to play in Super Bowl LI last year, the team also held a rally outside Gillette Stadium. Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and the following players are expected to be part of Monday's event (via WEEI's Ryan Hannable):
QB Tom Brady
FS Devin McCourty
WR Matthew Slater
FS Duron Harmon
OT David Andrews
WR Danny Amendola
The first five players on the list are all team captains, while Danny Amendola appears to take the place of injured offensive captain Rob Gronkowski.
Mark your calendars and come support your team!
