* '''Gillette Stadium''' [http://www.gillettestadium.com/]. The home of the '''New England Patriots''' football team [http://www.patriots.com] and the '''New England Revolution''' soccer team [http://www.revolutionsoccer.net/] is in the town of [[Foxborough]], about 25 miles southwest of Boston. The Revolution play from spring to fall, and the Patriots from fall through winter.  Patriots games are always sold out and getting tickets will probably be impossible. Revolution tickets will be easier to come by. Starting in 2012, Gillette Stadium will also become the football home of the '''UMass Minutemen''' [http://www.umassathletics.com/sports/m-footbl/umas-m-footbl-body.html]—the team of the University of Massachusetts [[Amherst (Massachusetts)|Amherst]]—as they make their move to the top tier of NCAA college football.

* '''TD Garden''' [http://www.tdgarden.com/], Causeway St.  The home of the '''Boston Celtics''' basketball team [http://www.nba.com/celtics] and '''Boston Bruins''' hockey team [http://bruins.nhl.com]. The site was previously occupied by the Boston Garden, a smaller venue, and the existing structure was previously called the FleetCenter and later the TD Banknorth Garden. The arena may be called by any of these names, or simply The Garden.  Accessible on the Green Line or Orange Line at North Station, which is underneath the Garden.The TD Banknorth Garden is home to two of Boston’s most historic sports team the Boston Celtics and the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions the Boston Bruins. If you’re a sports buff visiting Boston and one of these two teams is playing it is a must that you stop by a catch a game. Whether your sitting up high or down low finding a bad seat in the Garden is pretty hard for any sport even in last row you will still be able to see an exciting game in a very exciting atmosphere where history is made. Another notable annual sports event is the '''Beanpot''' college hockey tournament [http://www.beanpothockey.com], held on the first two Mondays of February and featuring the men's teams of Boston College (see below), '''Boston University''', '''Harvard University''', and '''Northeastern University'''.
