About Boston's TD Garden

In need of a new sports facility to replace the legendary 68-year old Boston Garden, Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs commissioned an architect and in 1993, ground was broken for the new facility. Mr. Jacobs is also the Chairman and CEO of Delaware North Companies, the current owner of the new facility. Located less than a foot away from the Boston Garden, the new arena opened on September 30, 1995.

The facility has undergone several name changes since ground was broken. Previously known as the FleetCenter, Shawmut Center and TD Banknorth Garden, the current name, TD Garden, became official in 2009. Located in downtown Boston, Massachusetts, the Garden, as it is known by the local community, is home to both the Boston Bruins NHL hockey team, the Boston Celtics NBA basketball team, and the Boston Blazers, a National Lacrosse team. In addition, close to 200 other events, including concerts and various other sport activities, are held at the Garden each year.

Situated on over three acres of land, TD Garden is truly a state of the art facility. Maximum seating at the arena is 19,580, with slightly fewer seats available during hockey and basketball games. It currently has a high definition video scoreboard as well as a 360-degree LED lighting system. An external LED lighting system was added in 2009. The building is ten stories high and sits atop a 5-story parking garage. The Premium Club includes 90 Executive Suites, the Heineken Boardroom, Club Seating, The Lofts, and the AT&T Sports Deck. These are available for business events, parties or just VIP seating.

TD Garden houses three restaurants: the Budweiser Legends Club, the Banner Harborview and the Premium Club Bistro. In addition, there are 47 concession stands for its visitors' convenience.

The Garden is also home to the Sports Museum. Open most days from 10:00 to 4:00, the museum has several exhibits for its visitors to see, including Larry Bird's locker, Banners from previous Celtic and Bruins championships and other memorabilia from other sporting events held in the Boston area. Educational programs are also held there for the area's youth. These include sports career seminars and character building workshops and even a writing contest. Information about the basketball Celtics Dynasty years are also on display at the museum for all to enjoy.
