Robert Kraft took over the New England Patriots control in 1994. He organized the installation of a grass surface at Foxboro intending to draw matches for the then World Cup. Robert is ready to do the same once the Gillette Stadium’s trial for the 2026 matches is confirmed.

These strategies was forwarded to the FIFA representatives who partnered with Brian Bilello and Robert Kraft in embarking on a 9-city visit to the stadium. The stadium officials claimed that they would remove the synthetic surface to revive the irrigation system and have the real turf in place.

On top of that, more sideline seating will be removed to meet the relevant requirements. The target is to host six matches in the group stages and later knockout rounds similar to 1994 were approximately 324, 000 spectators attended the Foxboro Stadium. In 1994, the stadium saw two Argentina winning matches including Maradona’s last international game. The stadium also hosted Argentina’s win over Nigeria and Spain.

Renovating the infrastructure will be expensive, but the merged revenue, exposure, and prestige justifies this with global TV audiences getting a lot of money per game. Gillette is a favorite out of all the 17 stadiums since Robert Kraft chairs the bid group of the 2026 competition.

A majority of America’s stadiums being assessed are even better than Gillette, which was launched in 2002, and it will make the respective changes to observe the field minimums. After the alterations, the officials intend to compromise the relevant FIFA dimensions.
