FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The home of the New England Patriots is going smoke free.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe reports

Officials at Gillette Stadium announced Monday that they are joining most other NFL venues and banning smoking everywhere inside stadium gates starting next Saturday with the New England Revolution soccer game.

Smoking had previously been allowed only in designated areas at the periphery of the 69,000-seat stadium.

The smoking ban applies to every event held inside the stadium including concerts and other functions.

Tufts Health Plan will make smoking cessation literature available at certain locations throughout the stadium and anti-smoking public service announcements will be made during events.
