The Boston Celtics announced via press release that the team’s home arena TD Garden will increase seating capacity for fans beginning with Game 3 of the team’s first-round playoff series with the Brooklyn Nets, scheduled to take place on Friday, May 28.
Though no specifics were included in the release regarding the number of fans or percentages, at present the state limits the arena to 25% of its 18,600 approximate capacity, which will be lifted to have no restrictions whatsoever on May 29 per the order of Governor Charlie Baker. That would put Game 4 of the series — planned for Sunday, May 30 — in range of being able to operate at near-full capacity levels.
Down at least one key player in All-Star wing Jaylen Brown, the increased home crowd boost is sure to be welcomed by the players.
Concurrently, ticket sales for fans will be expanded and available at the arena box office, and through the team’s app and website.
