It’s not just the Celtics that are on a winning streak these days. The TD Garden gameday experience is beating almost every other NBA arena.
The rankings come courtesy of Betway. Here’s the methodology: “Nine different factors were used to rank each city, and once the factors were collected, they were then normalized to provide each factor with a score between 0 and 1. The normalized values were then summed, to give each city a total score out of 9. The cities were then ranked from highest to lowest, based on their total scores.”
So what are the factors that Betway considered? Here’s the list: Championships won, Average ticket prices, Average win percentage, Home attendance, 12 oz beer cost, 16 oz soft drink cost, and hot dog cost. In other words, the foundational factors that would determine if the gameday experience at your city’s NBA arena is a positive one or a negative one. Pretty comprehensive.
TD Garden Gameday Experience Ranked Top 10 in the NBA
Before we get into the Top 10 and where TD Garden and your Boston Celtics landed, a quick plug. ROCK 92.9 is your radio home (sometimes) for the Boston Celtics. I won’t bore you with all the behind-the-scenes details, but suffice it to say, if the Bruins and Celtics have a game at the same time, you’ll hear the Bruins on the Sports Hub and you’ll hear the Celtics on ROCK 92.9. You can listen here.
OK, so let’s get dig into the rankings and see where the the Garden and the Celtics ended up. There’s a fancy graphic that Betway put together, too, so you can see the entire 28-city breakdown, complete with scores. Just scroll through, enjoy my witty commentary, and don’t forget to listen for the C’s on ROCK 92.9 as they continue their quest for Banner No. 18. Go Gang Green!
