TD Garden Seating Updates
Seating Update as of 2/7/2020: A Message From TD Garden President Amy Latimer.
Dear TD Garden Guests:
As the Bruins and Celtics hit the mid-season point, we are excited about their performances thus far. All of us at TD Garden hope that you are enjoying the new spaces and amenities that were unveiled this fall as part of the arena’s Legendary Transformation.
One component of this transformation was the replacement of the 24-year-old seats in the arena. Through guest feedback, we recognized that there were some areas of concern regarding the new seats, specifically legroom and comfort. We were able to make immediate modifications to address some concerns, such as adjusting all loge seat back angles to improve legroom.
In the balcony, we found that the new plush cushioning, armrest design and overall ergonomics were contributing to discomfort.
Based on that, and the recommendations provided by seating consultants, we will be replacing balcony seats and armrests. The new seats, similar in size, will have a custom, narrower armrest and a non-padded seat base and seat back to improve legroom and comfort.
The work will take place this off season. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused you this season. We have appreciated your feedback and look forward to continuing to provide fans the best experience possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
President, TD Garden
Seating Update as of 1/17/2020: In October 2019, technicians completed a full modification to Loge seating sections, adjusting seat back angles to improve legroom. These changes were well received, with guests noting the improved space. We continue to share guest feedback with our seating installation and architect partners and it will be factored into our next steps. We will share updates as they become available.
Seating Update as of 10/17/2019: Technicians have completed a full modification to Loge seating sections, adjusting seat back angles to improve legroom. We continue to work with our seating installation and architect partners to evaluate solutions for other areas throughout the arena bowl. We will share updates as they become available.
Seating Update as of 10/10/2019: A Message From TD Garden President Amy Latimer
Seating Update as of 10/9/2019: For the first time in nearly 25 years, we updated the seating inside TD Garden – always with the goal of improving the fan experience. Through guest feedback, we recognize there are some areas of concern, and have re-engaged our industry seating experts to evaluate and provide assessment. Here are some facts to help fans better understand the impacts of the seating upgrade project:
- While some seats did change in size, the average width of Loge and Balcony seats is the same as last year.
- The newly designed seats feature cushioning on bottom and back of ALL seats (previous seats did not all have padding), new armrest design, and increased seat back height and the overall ergonomics may contribute to a smaller seat feel for guests.
- The approximate 500 new seats added to the arena capacity, are part of new seating areas on the 8th and 9th floors.
- The seating capacity in the Loge and Balcony has increased by less than 20 seats total.
- We remain open for feedback and will continue to work with fans as we transition through all the changes.
