THE DUNKIN’ BEANPOT HITS HISTORIC MILESTONE WITH DEBUT OF WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP AT TD GARDEN
BOSTON (November 14, 2023) – One of Boston's most hallowed traditions, The Beanpot, returns to TD Garden this year with more prestige than ever – and with double the impact. The annual men’s college hockey tournament returns on the first two Mondays in February for the Dunkin’ Beanpot. And this year, for the first time ever, the Women's Dunkin’ Beanpot Championship will be played at TD Garden on January 23, 2024. The Dunkin’ Women’s Beanpot Championship was announced last March and will showcase both the consolation and the championship games at TD Garden. The women’s semifinals are on Tuesday, January 16 and will be hosted at Harvard Bright-Landry Hockey Center.
In January 2023, Dunkin’ was named the first ever sponsor of the 2023 Men’s Beanpot Tournament, and their multi-year sponsorship extends to the 2024 Dunkin’ Women’s Beanpot Championship. This will be the first time the Women’s Beanpot has had a title sponsor. Dunkin’ will be featured prominently throughout all promotions surrounding the men’s and women’s iconic college hockey tournaments via NESN, TD Garden, the four colleges and beyond. Boston’s four major college hockey programs (Boston College, Boston University, Harvard University and Northeastern University) will battle for the City’s bragging rights. The Northeastern Huskies will look to defend their Beanpot championship titles in both the men’s and women’s tournaments.
New England Sports Network (NESN) will deliver live and exclusive coverage of the 71st Annual Dunkin’ Beanpot and 45th Annual Dunkin’ Women’s Beanpot Championship. Tickets for all Dunkin’ Beanpot games hosted at TD Garden will go on sale Monday, November 20 at 10:00 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com.

A Boston Tradition
It has become Boston's "social event of winter season." The first two Monday nights of February in Boston are reserved for the Dunkin’ Beanpot, an annual hockey tournament that features Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern. It all started on Dec. 26, 1952 at the old Boston Arena. The next year the Beanpot moved to the Garden, where it has been played ever since and become the official battle for Boston's hockey bragging rights.
