  1. Others may correct me on this, but I don't think the season ticket waiting list and Ticket Exchange is the best way to go. I understand that the availability of tickets on the Ticket Exchange is next to nothing, and those that are available are not good seats. Your best bet is either to try buying single game tickets when they go on sale to the public (there is a pre announced time, but it's similar to buying for Glastonbury, they go fast. And you have to pay via Visa), or to go to a reselling site like StubHub. This has proved the most reliable route in the past, but of course you will end up paying a premium. And I'm guessing if your heart is set on the first home game, it will be a significant premium. As Husky says, though, if you want to get to Gilette but don't mind the game, get involved on here and apply to join our next road trip. It's quite an experience with 20 - 30 other UK based Pats fans, with lots to do throughout the weekend. Finally, welcome to the site!
  2. This - particularly if you're not fussed where you sit. Can't see why Twickenham would be significantly more popular than the Wembley games
  3. Yep will be there, block 120. I'm claiming 'Go Raiders' as it's against the Dolphins and I have Derek Carr in a dynasty FF league...
  4. Yale @ Harvard

    Yes think this would be great
  5. Yale @ Harvard

    That being the case, is there any realistic prospect of getting tickets?
  6. Massive Thank You

    Just to add to all of the above messages, it really felt like the atmosphere was a notch higher this year, and that is down to all of the efforts of those organising, making sure we got to sit together, planning it all out. Thanks to all for a great weekend - can't wait to do it again, hopefully at Gillette.
  7. Plus as Tommo says you can of course also order it online
  8. No you need to go to a manned ticket desk, but there should be one at every station. Not sure about this £20 fine thing, you just get charged the maximum single fare if you don't tap in and then try and tap out.
  9. After the pre-game party.....

    If people are staying out I'd be definitely up for joining. I'm otherwise occupied earlier in the evening (did anyone mention Muse at the O2?), but would join as soon as possible and keep going into the early hours...
  10. A few simple inquries re our trip to London

    I went there a few years ago now and it's perfectly decent. You get great views of Tower Bridge, it's one of a handful (I think) of Conran restaurants in that area, the other one I can name off the top of my head being Pont de la Tour (which does excellent Dover Sole, if you're into fish). It's not the easiest place to get to if you are using public transport, so cab ride is the best bet. Would make for a very nice night out, I would say book with confidence!
  11. A few simple inquries re our trip to London

    Barbecoa is great, and slightly more economical than Hawksmoor. As it's in the City, though, not sure if you'll be able to get a reservation, as it gets pretty busy. If you're after good steak restaurants, alternatives are Hix (there are a few dotted around so you should be able to get a table) or Goodmans.
  12. Where Are You Staying For The London Game ?

    Agree with these sentiments - whatever you're into sight-seeing wise, you'll find it in London.

    Of course, why not? It's an exciting idea, it's never been done before, I can easily see 50,000 people getting behind it. It will need to be done in the right way, but I'm not ready to rule it out. I watch the Pats on Gamepass, so for example I didn't watch the Pats / Vikes game until Monday. This isn't a problem for me. I don't live in Boston, so I can't watch them live every home game anyway. So if I had the chance to watch 8 NFL games a year at Wembley, and follow the Pats in the same way I do right now, why not? It would become more difficult if a London franchise was in the AFC East, for sure. But hey, that would guarantee the Pats in London once a year, plus a chance to support against the Jets, Dolphins and Bills once a year. It's not all bad. But in this situation, I probably wouldn't buy a season ticket. I'd still go to at least some of the games though. London is potentially a massive, massive market. I just don't see it as a foregone conclusion to the negative that the demand won't be there, if it's handled in the right way. They'll need to invest, for sure, but the returns are there. And as for the Rangers, Chelsea, Real Madrid thing... aren't they all in the Champions League? What happens when they play each other then? They must play each other sometimes, right, or at least there's a chance they do? What if the London franchise was in the NFC? Is that a massive issue for AFC team fans? We only play each NFC team once every four years anyway, or in the Superbowl. So how tough really is the conflict? Likewise for fans of NFC teams, if the London franchise was in the AFC, would it really be a total conflict? I don't think so. Granted there will be times when it will impact fans of existing teams, but it's not that often. All you need is a core demand, plus a few years to build interest from new fans of the NFL who don't yet support teams in the US. It's doable in my view.

    I mean, come on - with respect, this is coming from someone who seems to support three soccer teams. It's really not beyond the realms of possibility to see the games selling out, even based on NFL fans who also follow other teams.
