New England Patriots to hold in-stadium practice
July 27, 2013 by Sarah
Next week, the New England Patriots will be holding a special in-stadium practice at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro for the seventh summer in a row as a way to express their appreciation to residents in the local communities for their support of the team. No doubt flyer printing is being used throughout the area to let people be aware of this special event.
The event is free and requires a complimentary ticket. Those who are season ticket holders automatically get tickets to the practice while residents of Foxboro and South Walpole can sign up for the tickets at TicketMaster.
General admission applies, so those who arrive early will be able to get close to the field. There will be no charge for parking and there will also be concession stands inside the stadium during the practice. In addition, attendees will be able to hear detailed explanations of the drills so as to provide an understanding of the rationality behind practicing certain moves and how they will be used in actual games.
According to the Vice President of External Affairs for Gillette Stadium, Dan Murphy, the tradition is a way to thank season ticket holders and residents of Foxboro for support of the team.
The gates will be open at 5:00 pm this Monday, July 29, at which time there will be an induction ceremony for the new members of the Patriots Hall of Fame—Gil Santos, a legendary broadcaster, and Tedy Bruschi, a three-time Super Bowl champion and former linebacker. The in-stadium practice will follow at 6:30 pm.
