A few weeks ago, the Celtics announced that they’d be allowing fans back at the TD Garden in a limited capacity. Only 12% of the Garden can be filled, and the Garden will be implementing “Play It Safe Guidelines and Protocols,” which I wrote about in detail in a CelticsLife article on February 25th. This is a great sign for Celtics fans who are eager to see their team play in person, regardless of how the team is playing.
Right now, the Celtics are advertising ticket sales as an “exclusive presale window,” that is open now through 11:59 p.m. ET today, March 17. Tickets will obviously be extremely limited, so if you want to buy tickets with friends or family, I encourage you to do so ASAP. While at the game, there will be physically-distanced seating pods, and new Play It Safe guidelines and protocols that have been established to ensure the health and safety of guests.
Some important additional information that the Celtics outlined in their email includes entering the code “SHAMROCK” when prompted to complete your purchase. As of right now, there are only ten games listed as available to buy tickets from, and if a game is not listed, consider it to be sold out. You can buy tickets in socially-distanced “pods” of two (2) and four (4) seats, and there is a four (4) ticket limit per game.
This is a promising sign for all Celtics fans, and I’m eager to go back to the Garden and buy an overpriced beer and sit in those classically uncomfortable Garden seats. It may sound like I’m complaining, but honestly at this point I’d do anything to experience some semblance of basketball normalcy and watch the Celtics play in person. Here’s to hoping the C’s don’t blow a fourth quarter lead when I do make it to a game.
