Celtics watch party to acquire Fenway Thursday night – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) — Boston Mayor Michelle Wu announced Wednesday that Fenway Park will host a Celtics clock when they play the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Thursday night.

The Celtics are set to win or go home with the Warriors leading the series 3-2.

The city moved the guard party from Faneuil Hall and Copley Square, where emotions sometimes overwhelmed crowds during games, with reports of people throwing bottles, Wu said. With the Watch Party now in Fenway, the venue will enforce safety protocols.

“We’ve partnered with the Red Sox to find a place where 10,000 of our local fans can be there and safely cheer on our team in a location that’s also popular in our city,” Wu said.

The free tickets were sold out within two hours.

“It’s a cool environment in general,” said watch party attendee Natalie Denn. “I think Fenway is probably one of the most popular places anyway, so watching a Celtics game there would be one of the best things I could ever do.”

Fans said the collaboration makes perfect sense given the overlapping basketball and baseball seasons this year.

“It’s going to be great, I think that’s going to add an extra layer for fans who can’t be in the garden, it’s going to be a great atmosphere,” said Celtics fan Erica Adams.

For those wishing to attend the clock party, the gates will open at 8pm
