The New England Patriots are an American football team that competes in the East division of the American Football Conference (AFC) of the National Football League (NFL).

The football team plays home games at Gillette Stadium in the town of Foxborough, Massachusetts.

The football stadium is located 21 miles (34 kilometres) southwest of downtown Boston and 20 miles (32 kilometres) northeast of downtown Providence, Rhode Island.

Team History

The New England Patriots were originally called the Boston Patriots. They were one of the founding members of the American Football League (AFL), which merged with the National Football League in 1970.

The team’s name was changed when it moved to Foxborough in 1971.

The New England Patriots are one of the most successful football teams in NFL history. The football team has made nine appearances in the Super Bowl, more than any other football team.

The New England Patriots, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Dallas Cowboys have all won the Super Bowl five times. Only one team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, has won the Super Bowl more times.

The Patriots' key rivals are the New York Jets. It is considered one of the most bitter rivalries in the NFL.

 Sports Bars Friendly to New England Patriots Fans 

Boston, Massachusetts, is home to a large community of Irish Americans, and many of them have settled in other parts of the United States. And many of them continue to be loyal to their hometown's football team, the New England Patriots.

For this reason, Patriots games are likely to be aired in most Irish pubs - not only in Boston itself, in the rest of New England, and in other parts of the United States, but in Ireland, as well.

The Four's is a favoured hangout – not only for sports fans, journalists and even athletes also like to hang out at the popuplar sports bar!

Because the New England Patriots have a national fan base, I've doubled the number of listed bars, with two listings: one for New England and another for the rest of the country.
