Connecticut Sun at TD Garden

For the first time in league history, Boston, Massachusetts will be the location of a WNBA regular season contest, as the Connecticut Sun host the Los Angeles Sparks at TD Garden, home of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins, on August 20 at 7:00 PM ET. The game in Boston comes from the organization’s desire to give access to the Connecticut Sun brand to a larger swath of New England, giving an in-person experience to the loyal and passionate New England fans that live closer to the Boston area and generating more excitement around the WNBA in an area well-known for its sports fanaticism.

 

"The Sun is New England’s professional women’s basketball team with passionate fans across the region. 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." – Jen Rizzotti, Connecticut Sun President
