Gillette Stadium Seating Chart, New England Patriots. 

Despite still being a relatively young stadium, Gillette Stadium has quickly become one of the most iconic stadiums in the National Football League. Since debuting at Gillette Stadium in 2002, the New England Patriots have won five Super Bowls (2003, 2004, 2014, 2016, and 2018). The construction of the adjacent mixed-use development ‘Patriot Place’ has only added to the exciting game day experience at Gillette Stadium. Our staff wanted to provide a thorough breakdown of the Gillette Stadium seating chart to help fans decide where to sit before purchasing their New England Patriots tickets.


Where To Sit At Gillette Stadium

Gillette Stadium is an easy stadium to navigate and has a very similar layout to other popular NFL stadiums. There are three seating levels; the 100 level (lower level), 200 level (club level), and the 300 level (upper level). We’ll begin by discussing the 100 level seats.

Fans wishing to see a New England Patriots home game at Gillette Stadium are required to spend good money to do so. The New England Patriots operate on a dynamic ticket pricing model meaning ticket prices will vary depending on the opponent. The team's average ticket price exceeds $130 (2018) making it the second most expensive ticket in the National Football League behind the Chicago Bears. There are no New England Patriots season tickets available for sale; fans are welcome to join the lengthy season ticket waitlist of more than 50,000 people. As a result, the New England Patriots do not offer a seat upgrade option if they’re unhappy with their seats. Many other NFL stadiums offer some sort of seat upgrade option.
