Boston (WHDH)-Boston Mayor Michelle Wu announced on Wednesday that Fenway Park will host the Celtics watch against the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
The Celtics are facing a win or home game with the Warriors leading the Series 3-2.
The city has moved a watch party from Faneuil Hall and Copley Square. There, emotions could make the crowd better during the game, with reports that people threw bottles. At the watch party currently taking place in Fenway, the venue will implement a safety protocol.
“In partnership with the Red Sox, we’ve found a place where 10,000 local fans are there to safely support the team and do so in one of our city’s beloved places.” Wu says.
Free tickets sold out in 2 hours.
“It’s generally a cool environment,” said Natalie Den, a watch party attendee. “I think Fenway is probably one of the most popular places, so it will be one of the best things I’ve ever done to watch a Celtics match.”
Fans said the collaboration made perfect sense as this year’s basketball and baseball seasons overlap.
Celtics fan Erica Adams said, “I think it’s great. It’s going to be a great atmosphere for fans who can’t go to the garden.”
If you want to attend a watch party, the gate will open at 8pm.
