Because team owner Billy Sullivan wanted a stadium in Boston and was refused; he looked to Rockingham, New Hampshire for a site for a stadium, then writer Ron Hobson, whose father ran a horse track near Foxboro, MA, convinced all involved to build a stadium on land near the horse track. The stadium was quickly built and it opened in August 1971.
