Home to the Boston Bruins, this arena is one of the older ones in the league as it was constructed and opened in the early 1990’s.

It is also arguably one of the list appealing arenas in all of sports as it is really just a grey block with some glass on one side and a standard convention center rooftop design. Despite the unappealing looks there have been a lot of appealing attractions within the arena that has given it a very long history. Also, not only is it a host to the Boston Bruins but the Boston Celtics also call this arena home which basically gives it double the amount of history due to the long success of each of these franchises. Not only does it host these professional sports leagues but it also hosts some of the rounds of the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments as well as the men’s ice hockey tournaments. To be even more unique, it will be a home to the Laver Cup in 2021, which is an international men’s tennis tournament which will certainly be a big deal. Although it will be interesting to see how that works, putting tennis courts inside of an arena.
As for the arena itself, it was first planned back in the late 1970s when the Boston Bruins first made their intentions clear for a new arena. At the time the famous Boston Garden was nearly fifty years old, certainly old for an arena. It was not until 1992 when funding was announced for this project and construction began the following year. It officially opened on September 30, 1995 with an official ceremony. Ever since that day, there has been history made in the arena year after year.
