Boston Will Host 2020 Laver Cup

September 24, 2019

Boston, Massachusetts, will host the Laver Cup tennis event at the TD Garden from September 25-27, 2020.

It will be the fourth edition of the Laver Cup, in which the best players from Europe and around the world fight for victory over the three-day team competition.

“Boston is the perfect setting for the Laver Cup,” said Tony Godsick, CEO of TEAM8 and Chairman of the Laver Cup. “The city has a deep sporting culture, but it is also steeped in profound historical events, all of which resonate with the values of the Laver Cup and its tribute to the rich heritage of tennis.”

“The Laver Cup is like nothing else in world tennis. Over one amazing weekend we bring together the greatest current players as teammates, as well as great legends and rivals from previous generations.”

Home of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins, TD Garden is New England’s largest sports and entertainment arena and hosts more than 3.5 million people a year at its world-renowned concerts and sporting events.

The state-of-the art venue features a 19,600-seat arena, multi-million-dollar high definition video scoreboard, redesigned concourses and 360-degree LED technology.

“TD Garden is a haven for sports fans,” said Laver Cup CEO, Steve Zacks.

“The arena is close to completing a more than $100 million expansion plan and nothing is being spared to create the ultimate fan experience. We can’t wait to bring the Laver Cup to this spectacular venue.”

Team World captain John McEnroe, who together with Team Europe captain Bjorn Borg will continue in their roles for 2020, said he was excited the host city was sports-loving Boston, just 216 miles north of his home base in New York on the US East Coast.

“This is a phenomenal sports town and I expect fans will raise the roof for the home side,” McEnroe said.

“Laver Cup 2018 was unbelievably close thanks to the enthusiasm of home crowds. Boston is sure to continue that tradition at TD Garden, one of the best venues in the world.”

Since its debut at Prague in 2017, the Laver Cup has been staged at Chicago in 2018 and Geneva, Switzerland in 2019, with the host city alternating between Europe and the rest of the world.

Boston Mayor Martin J Walsh said he was thrilled the Laver Cup would touch down in 2020.

“I’m extremely excited and proud to announce that the City of Boston will host the next Laver Cup at the TD Garden in 2020, it’s a great honour for our city.

“We are already preparing for this highly acclaimed event and can’t wait to welcome the Laver Cup to the city of champions.”
