Also familiar by the name of “Pats” among it many football sports fans and journalists, the New England Patriots are a professional American football team, established in 1959 in Great Boston on the American Independence Day, July 4, when the organization’s first training camp was opened. The team’s name is inspired by Boston’s role in the American Revolution. The British football team has achieved a great success in the past decade, winning multiple Super Bowl titles and setting many world records. The patriots were among the ten American Football League (AFL) teams that joined the National Football League (NFL) when the two leagues merged in 1970. The team, which was originally known as the Boston Patriots, changed its name to “New England Patriots” the following year in 1971 when it started playing at then newly built Schaefer Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
