FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Patriots fans who wish to purchase tickets to individual games in 2006 will have the opportunity this Saturday, May 13, at 10:00 a.m. The New England Patriots annually cap their season ticket sales, leaving a limited number in reserve for fans throughout New England who wish to attend just a couple of games each season. Starting at 10:00 a.m. this Saturday, a few thousand tickets will be released for sale through Ticketmaster. Visa, a proud sponsor of the National Football League and the New England Patriots, will be the only form of payment accepted.
All ticket orders will be processed through Ticketmaster. Tickets will NOT be sold at the Gillette Stadium Ticket Office. Ticket orders can be completed online at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone. Ticketmaster phone numbers vary by area code, please check your local listings. In the greater Boston area, please call 617-931-2222 or 508-931-2222. Once again, all phone and online orders must be made exclusively with a Visa credit card.
If recent years are any indication, fans can expect the most popular games to sell out within minutes and for all regular season games to be sold out within the 10 o'clock hour. If that occurs again this year, 2006 will be the 13th consecutive season that the Patriots have announced a complete sellout prior to the start of the regular season. The Patriots streak of consecutive sellouts is currently 126 games and began in 1994, the year that Robert Kraft purchased the franchise. The streak includes all preseason, regular season and postseason games since Sept. 4, 1994. If the Patriots sell out every game again this season, the streak will extend to 136 consecutive games by the end of the 2006 regular season.
For the last 12 years, the Patriots have capped their season ticket sales to assure non-season ticket holders an opportunity to purchase tickets to individual games. The Patriots season ticket waiting list remains in excess of 50,000 fans.
