The Boston Patriots is the former name of the now New England Patriots. In 1971 the team changed its name from the Boston Patriots to the New England Patriots to better reflect its representation of the entire New England region. The team was first formed in 1960 by Boston businessman Billy Sullivan Jr. From 1963 to 1969, the Boston Patriots home stadium was Fenway Park. In their last year as the Boston Patriots, 1970, they played at Harvard Stadium in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
