TD Garden has announced the official launch of the ‘TD Garden Hub’ mobile experience in partnership with Venuetize.
Those who work, live, play and visit Boston’s hottest sports and entertainment district will now have access to a customised mobile experience while visiting TD Garden – New England’s premier sports and entertainment arena and home of the storied NHL’s Boston Bruins and NBA’s Boston Celtics – or the new 1.5 million square-foot development known as The Hub on Causeway.
The Hub on Causeway is a Boston Properties and Delaware North joint venture that is a transformative, transit-oriented development that includes mixed-use retail, restaurants, offices, hotels and residential.

Legendary Transformation of TD Garden
Delaware North completed the first phase of its massive, two-year expansion of the 24-year-old arena at the end of last year.
The US$100m private investment by the Jacobs family provides a combined 50,000SF of additional space on all levels, marking the ‘Legendary Transformation’ of TD Garden and the fan experience for generations to come.
The main concourses now have 15,000SF of new space combined – a 20% addition to Loge and 30% increase to Balcony. The expansion of the concourses is tailored to provide a more communal atmosphere for fans to gather, meet with friends, dine and grab a drink.
On both levels, Delaware North’s Sportservice, TD Garden’s food and beverage provider, operates experiential dining spaces inspired by contemporary food halls.
The 1928 Club on Level 5 is a dedicated destination for full-season Club Seating clients to dine, lounge and socialize. This 7,500SF club pays homage to the storied history of the Boston Garden and features an expansive bar, lounge and waited-seating options.
The 1928 Club has its own dedicated chef, who curates specialty, high-end menus to be paired with premium cocktails, wine and drafts.
Venuetize makes the way people experience spaces easier, more personal and enjoyable. The company’s mobile platform integrates with existing venue infrastructure to deliver mobile wallets, contextual advertising and information, and other applications that improve and innovate the guest experience.
Founded in 2014, Venuetize works with professional sports teams, stadiums and arenas, casinos, entertainment districts, and shopping destinations throughout North America.
