Connecticut Sun to Host Regular Season Game at TD Garden in 2024
Boston, MA (December 14, 2023) – The Connecticut Sun, Boston Celtics and TD Garden announced today that the Connecticut Sun will host a regular season game at the arena on August 20, 2024 (vs. TBD).
“We are excited to host the first WNBA game and welcome New England’s team, The Connecticut Sun, to play at TD Garden this summer,” said Glen Thornborough, TD Garden president and Boston Bruins COO. "We’ve had a record-breaking year of events in 2023 and we are thrilled to be adding more opportunities to celebrate women’s sports in Boston in 2024.”
The Connecticut Sun, based in Uncasville, Connecticut, has never played a regular season game at TD Garden. The organization reached out to Boston Celtics and TD Garden officials with the hope of reaching a new fan base, creating more of a bond with the NBA, Greater Boston, and New England as a whole.
"The Sun is New England’s professional women’s basketball team with passionate fans across the region,” said Jen Rizzotti, Connecticut Sun President. “Hosting our game in Boston, a place full of such a rich, winning tradition for New England sports, just made sense. Our vision is to provide access and exposure to the Connecticut Sun brand to thousands of sports fans, children, and their families, and for young girls to see first-hand that they can play at Boston’s hallowed TD Garden someday. This all would not be possible without the support of our partners at TD Garden and the Boston Celtics family, sharing their world class fan experience playbook with us. We are proud to be New England's WNBA team, and we can’t wait to shine in Boston."
“The Connecticut Sun is thrilled to have the opportunity to play the first ever WNBA regular season game in Boston at the TD Garden arena,” said Darius Taylor, Connecticut Sun General Manager. “We know that Boston and the surrounding New England area has a strong passion for the game and a historic sports tradition. We are honored to partner with the Boston Celtics and TD Garden to showcase the WNBA and to help expand Connecticut Sun fandom to such a supportive and enthusiastic sports community.”
The Connecticut Sun are one of the most successful WNBA franchises and play their home games at Mohegan Sun Arena. The team has reached the WNBA playoffs for the past seven seasons, including two WNBA Finals. Most recently, in 2023, the Connecticut Sun reached the WNBA semifinals.
