Gillette Stadium Lighthouse

bloggillette The 12-story high Lighthouse is a bright Beacon welcoming 68,756 New England Patriots Fans!
Since September 9, 2002, every New England Patriots home game has been sold out.

The 130-foot high Lighthouse replica is the signature architectural symbol of Gillette Stadium. Architect John Bolles designed the stadium’s main entrance to capture the maritime heritage of New England’s coastal communities. At field level, a coastal seawall was constructed using sculpted rock formations around the base of the Lighthouse.

The postmodern Lighthouse is a skeletal steel representation of the traditional lighthouses along the New England coastline. During the night games, the Lighthouse was planned to exhibit a vertical beam of Light 2-miles into the sky after each score. Currently, the functional Lighthouse casts a vertical Light beam throughout the night games.

A replica arched bridge was designed to resemble Boston’s famous Longfellow Bridge and traverses next to the Lighthouse over the main entrance to give fans a unique perspective of the game!

After the recent events, maybe the Gillette Stadium Lighthouse can shine brightly on the glowing record of the New England Patriots?

  1. New Englanders know how to catch the big fish!

  2. On opening night at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, the first time the Patriots scored a touchdown, they had all kinds of fireworks exploding out of this lighthouse behind one of the end zones. Guess what it looked like……needless to say, it was the LAST time too…lol…

  3. Hi Dallas Cowboys,

    In a rich man’s sport, the Patriots know how to lose the Big Ones…their pursuit of a perfect season ended in the one game that meant the most.

  4. The Cowboys need to ignore all the hype and just go out and play football.. one game at a time.

  5. As suspected, the clash of the NFL Titans was a close game.
    In their 10 games, Tom Brady has engineered 7 wins to Manning’s 3.

  6. All Aboard the New England Patriots train,
    now leaving the Dallas Cowboys with 6 straight wins!

  7. All teams were using Video cams to record their opponents, the Patriots were the only ones reported most likely due to the rivalry between former Patriot coach, Eric Mangini (currently, the Jets head coach) and Bill Belichick.

    Videogate was a violation of league rules, and the NFL Commissioner found no evidence of cheating.
    Looking forward to watching your Carolina Panthers play our Patriots!

  8. And The Pat know how too use a video cam too… Go Panthers
