Free parking at Gillette Stadium but there's a catch

There's a new special parking lot at Gillette that allows you to park for free but there's one thing you should know before you park there.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — One of the most frustrating and expensive parts of going to a Patriots game is parking. But this year there's one lot where parking is free but there's a catch. You can't leave until 75 minutes after the game has ended. 

Lot 55 is where you will find Patriots fans having a good time tailgating or napping as they wait to head home after the game. 

This is all to reduce traffic congestion on Route 1 when the mass exodus happens.
