The New England Patriots will head off to Glendale for Super Bowl XLIX on Monday, Jan. 26. But before the AFC champions set foot on the buses to do so, they’ll be greeted with a sendoff rally hosted by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh in City Hall Plaza.
“I am thrilled to host our conference champion New England Patriots at City Hall to rally before we send them off to another Super Bowl,” said Mayor Walsh in a press release. “This is an exciting time for Boston, and I remind all fans to celebrate responsibly and make our city proud.”
The rally will commence at 11 a.m., and it will include Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, president Jonathan Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick, as well as captains Tom Brady, Dan Connolly, Vince Wilfork, Devin McCourty and Matthew Slater.
Each of whom will address the fans before the team boards their flight to Arizona to face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Feb. 1.
Patriots public address announcer John Rooke will lead the rally, which will include performances by the Patriots cheerleaders, in addition to appearances from mascot Pat Patriot and the Patriots End Zone Militia.
