Fans encouraged to leave early or take train to USA-Spain

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Since traffic is anticipated to be heavy for the U.S. Men’s National Team friendly against Spain, Gillette Stadium officials are requesting assistance from local media in encouraging fans to leave early, carpool or take the MBTA commuter rail to the match today.

The parking lots at Gillette Stadium open at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday and gates to the stadium open at 2:30 p.m. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive at the stadium lots by 2:30 p.m. and enter the stadium gates by 3:45 p.m. to ensure entrance into the match prior to kickoff.

The largest, most accessible parking lots at Gillette Stadium are the P10 and P11 lots, located directly across Route 1 from Gillette Stadium. Access and egress to and from these stadium parking lots is much quicker if fans arriving on Route 1 from the north use the right lanes to access P10. Likewise, fans arriving from the south must use the left lanes to access P11 or P10.

Thanks to the efforts of the MBTA, a special train will be running directly to the Stadium from Boston for the match. The train will depart from South Station at 2 p.m. (with stops in Back Bay, Dedham and Norwood) and will arrive at Gillette Stadium at 3:05 p.m. The train will also depart Foxborough approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the match.

For more information about attending USA-Spain via MBTA, fans can visit the MBTA website at  or call the MBTA at 617-222-3200.
