Video shows ‘The Garden’ go from Basketball to Ice Hockey to tennis in the space of 24 hours.
Madison Square Garden is one of the most famous sporting venues in the world.
It hosts the New York Knicks and New York Rangers games, countless WWE events and tennis exhibition matches. It’s also an iconic musical arena, with Elton John, Rolling Stones and The Who among the many acts to haved played there.
This video shows the great work of the stadium staff as they convert the arena from an NBA court, to an NHL rink and finally to a tennis court – all in the space of 24 hours.
It is a routine that is done on a frequent basis, especially as the NBA and NHL seasons run side-by-side, which means this is an almost daily routine.
Premier League Groundsmen regularly complain that they don’t have enough time to prepare the pitch between football matches.
Perhaps if they saw this video, they would think twice before whinging.
