Still no date set for Patriots’ White House visit

One of Boston’s championship teams made it to the White House this spring, with the Red Sox making their visit on Thursday to be honored by President Donald Trump. But the Patriots have not been able to find a date that works yet.

A team spokesman said that the Patriots and the White House have been trading dates throughout April and May for the team to be honored, but one of the two sides has had a conflict each time.

The Patriots have usually visited the White House at this point in the spring after a Super Bowl victory. Four of their previous five visits have come in April, and the 2004 visit came on May 10. But the Patriots are still working with the White House and still could visit sometime between now and the middle of June.


The Patriots do play games at Washington and Baltimore this fall, but it is not likely that coach Bill Belichick would take the time out of the Patriots’ road schedule to visit the White House.
