New England Patriots - Statistics & Facts

The NFL franchise New England Patriots was established in 1959. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, the current owner Robert Kraft bought the franchise in 1994 for 172 million U.S. dollars. The most successful years of the franchise began in 2000, when Bill Belichick was hired as head coach, and quarterback Tom Brady was drafted by the team. Since then, the team has played in seven Super Bowls, winning five of them – 2002, 2004, 2005, 2015 and 2017. The team is tied with both the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys in regards to Super Bowl titles.

The New England Patriots, valued at 3.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, are the second most valuable franchise in the NFL, just behind the Dallas Cowboy, as well as one of the most valuable sports teams in the world. The Pats are also amongst the highest grossing teams in the NFL, with more than 500 million U.S. dollars in annual revenue.

The Patriots have sold out every home game since the franchise moved to the Gillette Stadium in 2002. Therefore, the total regular season home attendance has remained stable over the years at more than 500 thousand spectators, while the average regular season home attendance stands at about 66,800. The fans also show their support on social media – the franchise is very popular on both Twitter and Facebook. The Pats have the most followed Twitter account in the NFL, and the second most liked NFL team page on Facebook.

In 2015 the team was involved in the deflategate scandal, which deals with allegations that footballs were inappropriately deflated before the AFC Championship Game in January 2015. The scandal raised concerns about the team’s ethics, and the possible involvement of Tom Brady in it.
