Foxborough, Mass. -- The New England Patriots are expanding their football community outreach through the creation of a newly launched web site, NewEnglandFootball.com, which will be featured in the New England Football exhibit at The Hall at Patriot Place.
The Hall recently mailed registration and information packets to the athletic directors and head coaches at the more than 640 New England high schools that field football teams. Once a school registers on NewEnglandFootball.com, it is provided its own password-protected page and can then create original content with the ability to upload photos, keep records and provide useful event information to fans.
"We're excited to launch this new site," said Bryan Morry, Executive Director of The Hall at Patriot Place. "We are inviting high schools to register and provide content for their respective pages. It will be fun to watch the growth and development of NewEnglandFootball.com in the years to come.
"We think it will be a great resource for high school football fans and a way for schools to share the histories of their programs. We hope schools throughout New England will seize the opportunity to be part of a unique exhibit that will honor and inform the region's football community."
The New England Football exhibit within The Hall will include interactive touch-screen kiosks where visitors can learn about football in each New England state, including its origins, heroes, traditions, rivalries, champions and milestones. Those who want to learn about a specific New England high school will be directed to NewEnglandFootball.com in the kiosk.
The exhibit also will feature a Wall of Champions, where every current New England high school and Pop Warner regional champion will have the opportunity to display its team jersey. Additionally, the wall will include a New England mural filled with photos provided to The Hall by fans throughout the region.
"The Kraft family understands that New England football extends beyond the three-time world champion Patriots," Morry said. "This overall project is another example of the Krafts' commitment to youth initiatives and amateur football throughout the region."
The Hall at Patriot Place, a highly interactive Patriots museum and hall of fame, is currently under construction adjacent to Gillette Stadium as part of Patriot Place, a 1.3 million square foot super regional lifestyle and entertainment destination. Gillette Stadium, home to the three-time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, currently hosts the Eastern Massachusetts High School Super Bowls.
