NEW YORK, September 17, 2021 – New York Knicks announced today that single game tickets for the 2021-22 season are now available for public sale, with The World’s Most Famous Arena returning to full capacity crowds. To tip off their 75th Anniversary season, the Knicks will host the Boston Celtics in their home opener at The Garden on Wed., Oct. 20.  This season also marks the return of a full 82-game schedule and features a return to the NBA’s Christmas Day line-up where the Knicks will host the Atlanta Hawks in a rematch from last season’s NBA playoffs.

“Marking our 75th Anniversary, we are eagerly anticipating the start of the Knicks season and welcoming our fans back to Madison Square Garden for a full schedule at full capacity,” said David Hopkinson, MSG Sports EVP and President of Team Business Operations. “Knicks fans are greatest in the world and their enthusiasm will be felt throughout The Garden, as well as New York City, all season long.”
