Should the Boston Celtics consider building their own arena?
It might seem like sacrilege to those who have been a fan of the team long enough to remember the old Boston Garden
which stood just feet away from where the TD Garden of today currently stands.
But, completed in 1995, it is now one of the oldest arenas in the league
That in itself isn’t reason enough given the holding company, Delaware North, that runs it, just renovated the arena
But the holding company that runs TD Garden also owns it, not the Celtics
And therein lies the reason Boston might want to consider building their own arena.
On top of the convenience of being able to decide when to schedule their games versus other
it also confers a financial advantage in that they would be the one charging fees
