Foxborough town officials approve Patriots’ reopening plan for upcoming season

The Patriots still need approval from both state officials and health agencies before the team can move forward with their plans. 

FOXBOROUGH, Mass (WLNE) – When the New England Patriots host the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 13 they’ll be greeted by a much smaller crowd than usual at Gillette Stadium.

The Foxborough Board of Selectmen approved the Patriot’s COVID-19 related safety guideline plan which would allow season ticket holders to go to the games.

While the details are not fully put together, the selectmen on Tuesday were happy to approve plans for the 6-time Superbowl champions to play home games in front of approximately 14,000 season-ticket holders at Gillette Stadium in the fall.

The Patriots still need approval from both state officials and health agencies before the team can move forward with their plans.

Upon arriving at the gates, fans will have to undergo mandatory wellness check before proceeding through the metal detectors and ticket scanning stations.

According to the team, the usual season-ticket booklets will not be issued this year.

Ticket holders who want to attend games in 2020 will be contacted directly before each home game for specific seating assignments which may be subject to change every game.
