Foxborough, Mass. (October 19, 2011)
- The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon will be rewarding one fan and a guest with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Patriots' football operations facilities through a contest running from Oct. 21 to Oct. 30. The tour includes the Patriots locker room, players dining area, team meeting room and weight room.
The contest coincides with the launch of the Hall's newest exhibit, Behind the Scenes, a Look Into the Patriots Football Operation on Oct. 21.
"This is great timing with the recent success of the 'Bill Belichick: A Football Life' documentary, which gave fans a sneak peek of the behind-the-scenes operation of the Patriots," said Bryan Morry, Executive Director of The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon. "Through this exhibit, fans can delve deeper into the Patriots' football operations, and one lucky fan will win the exclusive tour of the facilities to see first-hand where all of that work happens leading up to game day."
The exhibit outlines a week in the life of a Patriots player and details the steps to get Gillette Stadium ready for a game. The exhibit also includes video from inside the Patriots locker room, on the sideline, at practice, in the draft room and shows preparations for a team road trip. Behind the Scenes also has information on the team's medical and nutrition programs and media obligations. It features items never-before released to the public, such as signage from the team's football offices, a practice schedule used by the coaching staff, trade agreements, an offseason conditioning binder, Bill Belichick's sideline headset, player parking signs and the practice player of the week jersey.
Contest entries will be accepted on site only at The Hall's ticket office. There is no purchase necessary to enter. For more information on the contest rules, visit www.thehallatpatriotplace.com
