UFC 292 at TD Garden is set to become the highest-grossing sporting event in the arena’s history, generating massive economic gains for Boston. Don’t miss this historic night!
TD Garden in Boston is set to host UFC 292, a highly anticipated mixed martial arts event that is expected to make history. With the event selling out within days of tickets going on sale, UFC 292 is projected to become the highest-grossing sporting event in the arena’s history, excluding the NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Championship.
The return of UFC to TD Garden after the pandemic-induced hiatus has generated immense excitement among fans and is poised to have a significant impact on the local economy. The total revenue from ticket sales is estimated to reach $6.75 million, nearly triple the gate from the previous pay-per-view event held at the Garden in 2018.
According to TD Garden President Amy Latimer, UFC 292 ranks among the biggest events of the year, comparable to those held in renowned locations like Las Vegas and New York. The event’s popularity extends beyond Massachusetts, with 70% of ticket buyers coming from outside the state. This influx of visitors is expected to boost the city’s tourism industry, as many out-of-state attendees are staying in Boston hotels for multiple nights.
The significance of UFC 292’s success goes beyond the sporting arena. It highlights Boston ‘s status as a premier destination for major sporting events and showcases the city’s ability to stimulate the local economy. Amy Latimer emphasized the positive impact of the event, stating, "The success of UFC 292 is a major win for TD Garden and for the city of Boston , demonstrating that our city is a premier destination for major sporting events and helps boost our local economy."
With tickets in high demand, prices on the secondary market have soared. Standing room only tickets were available starting at $342, with some listings on Stubhub exceeding $1,000. This fervor surrounding UFC 292 further solidifies its status as a must-see event.
