New Photos Show Big Progress On Gillette Stadium Renovations

Gillette Stadium opened in Foxborough in 2002 and The Kraft Group thought it would be nice if they do some renovations. The owners of the venue have invested a lot of money in the facility. They made some improvements in 2021, fixing the south stand and installing a new LED screen.

The Kraft family didn’t stop here. On December, 2021, they announced the design for the biggest update ever. New renovations include expansion of the stand’s infrastructure behind the north end of the football field. There are no changes to the entrance, but there’s definitely an expansion of the upper section of the north stand. There will be a glass pavilion with a hospitality area and performance spaces. This will cover about 50,000 square feet. Kraft had an idea of building a panoramic LED screen on the side of the stands. It will be the largest LED screen in open-air stadiums in the US.

Patriots players to flash their dominance following Gillette Stadium renovations

According to sources, the demolition of the lighthouse was part of the initial plan. The Kraft family will install a new 218 lighthouse with an outdoor observation deck at the top. The lighthouse will offer a panoramic view of Boston and Providence.

Early work began in January 2022 and we already have some photos of the progress. The Patriots had an official ceremony on May 11, which was 20 years after the stadium opened. Sources close to the team reveal that renovations will be completed before the start of the 2023 NFL season.

Keep in mind that the facility is fully functional at the moment. Ignore the cranes near the entrance. Renovations will amount about $224 million. Suffolk Construction is the main contractor.

Head coach Bill Belichick and his players are entering a challenging season. I guess players will me super motivated to win games on a renovated stadium. Quarterback Mac Jones has a big plan and his offseason improvement gives fans a reason to start off early celebrations. It’s a big season for everyone in New England. Belichick trusts his players and his new assistants. It’s showtime!
