After winning their second Super Bowl in three seasons, the demand for Patriots tickets has never been higher. With a 99 percent renewal rate in 2004 and a paid season ticket waiting list that has grown in excess of 50,000 fans, the Patriots have decided to offer a limited number of standing room only tickets for all home games this season for the first time in the franchise's history. Those tickets will go on sale on Saturday, August 7 at 10:00 a.m. exclusively through the Ticketmaster phone center (508-931-2222 or 617-931-2222). All tickets are $39 and must be purchased with a Visa, the official credit card of the New England Patriots and a proud sponsor of the NFL. Sales information is detailed below:
