About the New England Patriots
The Patriots were founded in Boston in 1960 as the eighth and final American Football League (AFL) franchise in the AFL's inaugural season. The AFL merged with the National Football League (NFL) in 1970 and moved to Foxborough, Mass. in 1971. In 1994, Robert Kraft purchased the team and transformed it into one of the league's premier franchises. Since Kraft's arrival, every Patriots home game has sold out, propelling the Patriots to more overall wins, division titles, conference crowns and Super Bowl championships than any other team in the past 22 years. Since 2002, when the Patriots moved into the privately-financed Gillette Stadium, the team has celebrated one of the most dominant eras in professional sports by establishing one of the greatest home-field records of all time.
