Patriots Playoff tickets on sale Friday, Jan. 7

The Patriots will host a divisional playoff game on Sunday, January 16 at 4:30 p.m. A limited number of tickets have been reserved for a public sale.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots earned their 12th trip to the playoffs in the past 17 years after finishing the 2010 regular season with the best record (14-2) in the NFL. By earning the top seed in the AFC for the third time in the past seven years, the Patriots are assured of hosting a divisional playoff game on Sunday, January 16 at 4:30 p.m. A limited number of tickets have been reserved for a public sale. Those tickets will go on sale on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011 at noon through Ticketmaster.

Prior to 1994, the New England Patriots hosted just one playoff game in the franchise's first 34 seasons. When the Patriots host the divisional playoff game on Sunday, Jan. 16, it will be the 13th playoff game the Patriots have hosted since Robert Kraft purchased the franchise 17 years ago. Historically, that home-field advantage has helped propel the Patriots throughout the playoffs, as they have won an NFL-best 11 of those 12 home playoff games.

A limited number of tickets were reserved for a private sale to Patriots season ticket holders and Patriots season ticket wait list members this week. The tickets reserved for the public sale will be made available through Ticketmaster starting at noon on Friday, Jan. 7.

All Patriots playoff ticket orders will be processed through Ticketmaster. Playoff tickets will NOT be sold at the Gillette Stadium Ticket Office. Ticket orders can be processed online at or by phone by calling 800-745-3000. Visa, a proud sponsor of the National Football League and the New England Patriots, will be the only accepted form of payment.
