The Boston Globe

Boston - Mark Wahlberg along with Laura J. Sen President of BJ's Wholesale Club the official sponsor of Boston Celtics revealed their MLC jersey at a press conference at the Gillete Stadium on Friday. Earlier last week Boston Celtics announced historic Gillete Stadium as their home ground for the upcoming inaugural edition of MLC. Wahlberg expressed his gratitude toward the people of Boston for the support they have shown so far, and he promised the Boston Celtics will not let them down.

Wahlberg is well aware of the rich history of Gillete Stadium, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots established it as a scared ground for every Boston fan and he is keen on keeping it that way. He said, "I am 100% dedicated to building a successful franchise that will keep the tradition going."

The Celtics will be wearing a green jersey with white stripes on the shoulders, and light green "Boston" writing features on front side of the jersey. The front side of the jersey will also feature the depiction of a leprechaun. The Celtics are also considering starting a new tradition of wearing green jerseys with gold trim as part of the St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Fans can order their jersey at

Wahlberg did not want to make any comments regarding coaching staff, but he did mention that The Celtics are talking to coaches from different parts of the word and will be making a decision very soon. The Celtics are also in the process of negotiating with Mass Mutual as their second sponsor, but yet to be confirmed.
