Patriots Individual Game Tickets to Go On Sale on Tuesday, July 17Football season will be here before you know it, and Patriots fans will get their chance to purchase tickets very soon.

The Patriots announced Monday morning that individual game tickets for 2012 home games will go on sale Tuesday, July 17 at 10 a.m. ET. Tickets can be ordered through Ticketmaster, but will not be sold at the Gillette Stadium ticket office. Fans can purchase tickets either at or by calling 1-800-745-3000. 

It's probably safe to assume that tickets will move quickly, and if that's the case, it will be the 19th consecutive season in which the team will be able to announce a complete sellout prior to the regular season beginning. The team has sold out 193 consecutive games, a streak that includes preseason, regular season and postseason games dating back to 1994.

In addition to hosting their AFC East rivals, the Pats will also welcome the Cardinals, Broncos, Colts, Texans and 49ers to Gillette Stadium. The Patriots face the Cardinals in their home opener Sept. 16.
