Patriots Heading to Germany For Debut Next SeasonKirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like the New England Patriots are heading to Europe later this year, with a game slated to take place in Germany during the 2023 regular season.

The team issued a release on Thursday announcing that New England and Kansas City are the two teams designated to entertain fans as home teams in Germany next season, with the opponent and date still yet to be determined.

While the league has only announced the Chiefs and Patriots as the home teams, New England’s possible opponents for this contest are potentially New Orleans, Washington, New Orleans, Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins or the New York Jets.

The Patriots were previously awarded international marketing rights as part of the league’s International Home Marketing Area program, with the club having been awarded rights in Germany.  The league had strong demand in Germany in 2022, with tickets between the Seahawks and the Buccaneers reportedly selling out in a matter of minutes, with Ticketmaster reportedly receiving nearly 3 million requests for just over 72,000 seats.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft pointed out that the team has had pretty good luck over the years when playing in international games, with the club currently enjoying an unbeaten streak outside the United States.

“We are thrilled to be selected to play in Germany this year,” said Kraft in the team’s release. “We are undefeated in our three previous international games, thanks in part to the outstanding support from our fans. We know that some of our most passionate fans reside in Germany, and we look forward to finally playing a game there. We know the fans will create an amazing atmosphere. We are sure it will be a memorable experience and one of the highlights of the 2023 season.”

As for where they’ll play, the possible venues are Frankfurt or Munich, with further details still yet to be announced.
