Gillette Stadium, home to the NFL’s New England Patriots and the Revolution in MLS, will expand its Row of Honor dedicated to military personnel as part of a $250 million renovation project funded by owner Robert Kraft and the Kraft family.

The $250 million is the most spent on improvements to Gillette Stadium since its opening in 2002. A new LED video board standing five feet high and 30 feet wide will be added to the Row of Honor located in the center north end of Gillette Stadium that sits under an enhanced 22-story lighthouse with a 360-degree observation deck.

Servicemembers will be invited to games and concerts at Gillette Stadium to sit in eight seats that make up the Row of Honor, with their names, videos, and military branch logos shown on the new digital display. The eight seats will be next to Gillette Stadium’s POW/MIA seat, which it added in 2012 as the first major professional sports venue to leave a seat permanently unoccupied in recognition of soldiers missing in action or POW.

Other stadium upgrades as part of the Kraft family’s $250 million investment include a redesigned Enel Plaza, new and improved concession locations and restrooms, and the addition of G-P Atrium, a new year-round premium hospitality space. 

Construction of the expanded Row of Honor and video board is expected to be completed before the start of the 2023 NFL season. Gillette Stadium will notably host the 2023 Army-Navy football game on Dec. 9.
