The NFL released the New England Patriots 2021 schedule this week, so we now know for sure when Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski will be making their return to their old stomping grounds of Gillette Stadium. The Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take on our Pats on October 3rd, in a Sunday night prime time matchup. This will be a historic game, and if you want to watch it in person, you better be ready to break the bank.

We looked at the latest prices for this game on the secondary market, and they are incredible. The cheapest ticket is going to cost you over $1,110. If you want to be near the action on the 50-yard line, that will cost you $12,000. That's per ticket, bub. That's pretty much Super Bowl level prices. 

 

The 12 grand per ticket pales compared to some of the most expensive sporting event tickets of all time. Tickets to the Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor fight in 2017 cost over $100,000 PER ticket.

The Return of Brady to Pats Country game could also be historic for another reason. TB12 enters the 2021 season, 1,154 yards behind the all-time career passing record that the now-retired Drew Brees currently holds. However, if Brady keeps up his normal passing yards per game rate, he would be poised to break that record at Gillette on October 3rd. Talk about motivation for Tom!.
