Since 2009, TicketIQ (formerly TiqIQ) has used its intelligence to help fans get the best deals, and now offers a Low Price Guarantee on every event.
Single-game tickets for a handful of New England Patriots games are available via primary market ticket partner Ticketmaster, but most games, including the home opener against Pittsburgh and the November 24 Dallas Cowboys game are sold out. Season tickets have been sold out since 1994, though fans can get on a waiting list.
Fans must put down a $100 deposit for each seat (minimum two, maximum four), and there are benefits to being on the waiting list, including the special event presales, an invitation to the Patriots draft party, and a discount at the Patriots Pro Shop.
The Patriots and Gillette Stadium offer many premium experiences for home games, including VIP Cross Pavilion tickets and the Putnam Club. For premium experience pricing, fans can e-mail the Patriots at VIPSales@Patriots.com.
Fans with Cross Pavilion tickets have access to an in-stadium hospitality area beginning 2-1/2 hours before kickoff. The pregame experience includes a hosted bar, big-screen TVs, a private entrance into Gillette Stadium and appearances by former Patriots players and New England cheerleaders. The ticket price includes lower-level game tickets.
The Putnam Club is an upscale entertainment venue that provides end zone-to-end zone views as well as high-end food and beverage service, HD TVs and video walls. Outdoors, the Putnam Club offers plush seating.
This season, the Patriots eliminated paper tickets, and fans can use mobile entry to get into Gillette Stadium. On the Patriots website, fans can get a mobile ticket tutorial. On the Gillette Stadium app, fans can access real-time game-day updates as well as watch video replays and see live camera angles not available on TV.

The $762 average asking price for a Patriots home game on the secondary market is the highest across the NFL, and is up from $524 in 2018. That price is the highest of the decade, and comes on the heels of the Patriots winning their sixth Super Bowl since 2001. The second highest average of the decade was $587 in 2017, a year after winning Super Bowl LI. The Patriots got the Super Bowl again in 2017, but lost to Philadelphia.
Seven of the Patriots eight games have average asking prices that are trending at $640 or more. The best deal of the season is for the December 21 Buffalo Bills game, which has a current average asking price of $338, while the highest average is $999 for the November 24 Dallas Cowboys game.
