NH Patriots fans, here's your chance to take a selfie with the Super Bowl LI trophy
DOVER — The New England Patriots' Super Bowl LI Lombardi Trophy is making its way to the Granite State on July 10.
Dover Mayor Karen Weston and the Dover City Council will welcome the trophy, along with New England Patriots’ Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett, team mascot Pat Patriot and a representative from the Patriots Cheerleaders.
The trophy will be on display at the Rotary Arts Pavilion, at Henry Law Park, from 5:30-8 p.m. July 10.
“Dover is proud to welcome the Lombardi Trophy to the City,” Weston said. “Dover is home to some of the most loyal and passionate Patriots fans, including myself, who will be thrilled to continue a celebration of the greatest football team of all time and their spectacular victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.”
Weston added that Dover shares more than team loyalty with the New England Patriots. She met Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft at Super Bowl XLIX in February 2015, where she presented Kraft with a City of Dover shirt and invited him and the team to Dover to celebrate their victory.
In 2016, Kraft and Weston were on hand for the grand opening of Rand Whitney’s 120,000-square-foot facility on Stonewall Drive, which is owned by the Kraft Group.
The trophy reception and viewing is open to all members of the public, and Patriots fans will have a chance to take the stage and snap a selfie with the trophy.
