Memorial ceramic tiles will be replaced with ceramic tile for next season
The New England Patriots are going back to the “Memorial” ceramic tile from the 2012 Super Bowl.
The team will replace the tiles for the 2017 season.
Memorial ceramic tile was used on the field during the first two games of the Patriots Super Bowl XLVII, but the team has said it will be retiring the tiles.
In 2017, the Patriots installed ceramic tile on the inside of their stadium to help shield it from the sun.
The Patriots are expected to use new ceramic tile in 2017 as well.
