TD Garden To Host The 2024 Dunkin' Women's Beanpot Championship
The 45th Annual Women’s College Hockey Classic to be played in NHL arena for the First Time in Women’s Beanpot History
BOSTON (March 21, 2023) – TD Garden announced today the 45th Dunkin’ Women’s Beanpot Championship will be played at TD Garden on January 23, 2024. The annual showcase will include both the consolation and the championship games, featuring Boston’s four major college hockey women’s programs from Boston College, Boston University, Harvard University and Northeastern University in a battle for the City’s bragging rights. The consolation and championship games will be broadcast on NESN.
“As a former collegiate athlete, a fan, and an executive in the sports industry, I am thrilled to announce that TD Garden will be the proud home of the Dunkin’ Women’s Beanpot in 2024,” said Amy Latimer, president of TD Garden. “For both the student athletes and the fans, we are confident it is an experience they will never forget. It’s a new chapter in equality for women’s sports and we are excited to support the growth of women’s hockey.”
In January 2023, Dunkin’ was named the first ever sponsor of the 2023 Men’s Beanpot Tournament, and their multi-year sponsorship extends to the 2024 Dunkin’ Women’s Beanpot Championship. This will be the first time the Women’s Beanpot has had a title sponsor. Dunkin’ will be featured prominently throughout all promotions surrounding the men’s and women’s iconic college hockey tournaments via NESN, TD Garden, the four colleges and beyond.
TD Garden and the Boston Bruins have invited players from each of the women’s college hockey teams in for tonight’s game vs the Ottawa Senators at 7:00PM. The Boston Bruins are celebrating ‘Women in Sports Night’ presented by Rapid7. The 2023 Women’s Beanpot Champions, Northeastern Huskies, will be celebrated in-game and the players of each team will meet with fans and take photos with the Beanpot trophy on the concourse in the first and second intermission.
“The winner of the Dunkin' Women's Beanpot earns the title of Boston city champion for the year and Hockey East commends the TD Garden for bringing the 2024 championship game to such an iconic hockey venue," said Hockey East Commissioner Steve Metcalf.
“Having helped organize and coach in the very first Women’s Beanpot Tournament back in 1979, I can’t express how happy I am to see this exciting new development,” said Joe Bertagna, former Hockey East Commissioner and Harvard University’s first head coach of women’s hockey. “This is something that many people have advocated for many years and not only will it be a thrill for the athletes, but it will also allow new fans to appreciate the women’s game."
