Not that it’s a sign but Patriots individual tickets will go on sale Friday
|07.13.11 at 5:32 pm ET|
The Patriots were very careful to keep the right perspective on Wednesday’s announcement that individual game tickets for all home games will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. ET.
“As a reminder to last month’s announcement, individual game tickets to the Patriots’ home games this year will be made available for sale through Ticketmaster on Friday, July 15, 2011 at 10:00 a.m.,” Wednesday afternoon’s media advisory read. “The New England Patriots annually cap season ticket sales, leaving a limited number in reserve for Patriots fans who wish to attend just a game or two each season. Those tickets will be released for sale through Ticketmaster. Visa, a proud sponsor of the National Football League and the New England Patriots, will once again be the only form of payment accepted for Patriots tickets.”
The team went on to explain that all ticket orders will be processed through Ticketmaster and that tickets will NOT be sold at the Gillette Stadium Ticket Office. Ticket orders can be completed online at ticketmaster.com or by phone by calling 800-745-3000.
In recent years, all regular season tickets sold out within minutes. If that occurs again this year, 2011 will mark the 18th 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 181 games, one contributing factor in the team’s rise to one of the most successful in all of sports. Forbes released its Top 50 most valuable franchises in world sports and the Patriots came in at No. 6. The streak 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.
