Boston Stadiums Overview

Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, NH) - Arena | Concert Venue in Boston

In a city that lives and dies by its sports teams, there is no more hallowed ground than the arenas and stadiums in Boston. Home to the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Patriots, the sports temples host tens of thousands of rabid fans, but also serve as great venues for the biggest performing artists in the world.

When you think about Boston stadiums, there’s really only one that matters – Fenway Park. Home to the Boston Red Sox since 1912, Fenway seats 37,000 passionate baseball fans, and is officially on the national register of historic places.

When it comes to basketball and hockey, unfortunately the old Boston Garden was torn down. But in its place is the state-of-the-art TD Garden where loyal Celtics and Bruins fans can get their fix throughout the year. The arena seats up to 20,000 people and also hosts big-time international performers. Everyone from Lady Gaga and U2, to Katy Perry and Bon Jovi have all graced the Garden stage.

The largest stadium is actually outside of Boston in Foxborough, Massachusetts and is home to the New England Patriots football team. Gillette Stadium holds nearly 70,000 spectators for bone-crushing NFL games but it has also been home to big concerts and international soccer matches.

If you’re a sports fan, there’s nothing quite like seeing a live game in Boston as the stadiums and arenas become living, breathing entities meant to buoy the home teams and intimidate the visiting squads.
