Don’t Bet On Patriots Getting Mixed-Reality Mascot Like Panthers, Ravens

'Not ruling it out in the future'


September 17, 2021

Will the New England Patriots hop on the bandwagon and incorporate virtual militiamen as part of their pregame presentation at Gillette Stadium?

Don’t bank on it.

In case you missed it, the Carolina Panthers last week debuted a mixed-reality mascot for their home opener against the New York Jets. The presentation was similar to what the Baltimore Ravens used before a game last season.

Take a look:

Pretty cool stuff.

The presentations were made possible by a company called The Famous Group.

Craig Kolodny of NBC Boston recently reached out to Jon Slusser of The Famous Group to learn more about the project. He also spoke with a Patriots spokesperson about whether the team had any plans for doing something similar.

Here’s the reply he received:

“We have discussed things like this in the past, but have put our investment in other enhancements instead. Not ruling it out in the future, but it is not something that we have planned for this year.”

You can see Kolodny’s full report by watching the video linked in the tweet below:

Hey, there’s a chance, right?

The Patriots last weekend dropped their season opener to the Miami Dolphins. They’ll look to rebound this weekend when they face the New York Jets.
