The New England Patriots football team was established in 1959 on the July 4 American Independence Day in Great Boston. It is also known as “Pats” by its supporters. The name Patriots is a reflection of Boston’s contribution in the American Revolution. The Patriots have been a very successful football team in the last 10 years by winning several Super Bowl trophies and creating world records. The merger of American Football League and National Football League (NFL) saw the Patriots playing in the NFL.
Originally known as Boston Patriots, they changed the name to “New England Patriots” in 1971. It is the same year when they moved to their newly-constructed Schaefer Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
