2020 Laver Cup To Be Held In Boston
The 2020 Laver Cup will take place in Boston, one of the greatest sports cities in the world, from 25-27 September.
Sports fans worldwide keenly follow several major league sports teams from the Massachusetts’ capital, including the Boston Bruins (ice hockey), Boston Celtics (basketball), Boston Red Sox (baseball) and the New England Patriots (football).
Now tennis will add a new dimension to Boston’s incredible sports reputation with the arrival of the Laver Cup, in its fourth edition and where the best players from Team Europe and Team World fight for victory over the three-day team competition, established to honour past legends of the game.
“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.”
Home of the NBA's Celtics and the NHL's 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.
“I’m delighted to see the fourth instalment of the Laver Cup will be in Boston,” said Laver, a long-time resident of Carlsbad in California. “It’s a wonderful city steeped in history, sports and culture. I can’t wait to get back there for the Laver Cup, it’s sure to be another memorable chapter in this event’s remarkable evolution.”
Since Laver Cup's debut at Prague in 2017, the event 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.
Team Europe won its third consecutive Laver Cup on Sunday in Geneva as Alexander Zverev, for the second year in a row, won the event's final match to catapult the home team to the title 13-11. Zverev beat Team World's Milos Raonic 6-4, 3-6, 10-4. Each winning team member receives $250,000.
