REPORT: Patriots Struggling To Find Room For 5th Super Bowl Banner At Gillette Stadium
There’s a bunch of teams in the league that wished this was their franchise’s biggest issue.
The New England Patriots have an serious problem on their hands right now; they don’t have any more room for championship banners at Gillette Stadium.
As pointed out by Mike Reiss of ESPN, when the Patriots opened up Gillette Stadium way back in 2002, they created a big space over the scoreboard to hang giant championship banners. They had no clue those banners would keep coming and coming and coming in such a short amount of time.
Reiss reports the Patriots are “considering design plans on how to proceed” with ways to showcase the team’s latest Super Bowl win:
“It also enlightened me to some significant renovations the Kraft family had made two years ago to commemorate the Super Bowl XLIX championship inside Gillette Stadium, specifically in the area where players enter the facility, the main lobby area, and inside the team’s Hall of Fame. Just as those renovations were completed, they’ll now need to be updated again.”
Don’t expect any other franchise in the league to feel sorry for the Pats.
