Mascot and Cheerleaders

The Celtics' official mascot is a leprechaun named Lucky the Leprechaun. Lucky has been the team’s mascot for over 50 years. The Celtics are also cheered on by their dance team, known simply as the Celtics Dancers. The Boston Celtics were without a dance team until 2006. The Celtics Dancers perform during halftime and throughout the game.

In addition to their dancers, the Celtics have a number of teams that help keep the fans pumped. The Green Team gets fans fired up by giving away prizes and throwing t-shirts into the crowd. Occasionally, Lil' Phunk, the official junior dance team of the Celtics, performs at home games as well as Phunk Phenomenon. The Celtics Dancers are involved in community outreach programs as well.
