2021 Beanpot Canceled Due To COVID-19 Pandemic

BOSTON (CBS) -- COVID-19 has claimed another one of Boston's annual traditions. There will be no Beanpot Tournament in 2021 due to the pandemic, the TD Garden announced on Monday.

The annual hockey tournament between Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern has decided local bragging rights since 1952. It's held the first two Mondays of February, but the four schools will have to wait a year to play for all the beans.

The 69th Beanpot tournament will now be held in 2022. Northeastern has won the last three Beanpot tournaments.
