Fans who are planning on attending Friday night's preseason game when the Patriots host the Philadelphia Eagles at 7:30 p.m. are encouraged to allow plenty of time for their commute to the stadium.
The parking lots at Gillette Stadium open at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, August 22nd. Gates to the stadium open at 5:30. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
The largest, most efficiently accessed parking lots are the P10 and P11 lots, located directly across Route 1 from Gillette Stadium. Access and egress to and from the stadium parking lots is much quicker in these lots if fans arriving on Route 1 from the north use the right lanes to access P10. Likewise, fans arriving from the south are strongly encouraged to use the left lanes to access P11 or P10.
