    The Boston Licensing Board has cleared the operators of TD Garden of allegations stemming from a June 25 concert in which dozens of people were hospitalized for drug- and alcohol-related illnesses.

    One allegation against Massachusetts Sportservice Inc., the operator, cited “numerous intoxicated underage patrons observed inside premise requiring medical treatment, transported to hospital.”

    The case also included claims of an assault between patrons and a sexual assault.


    At a Tuesday hearing, TD Garden representatives discussed precautions and the steps taken by staff to identify and treat stricken patrons at the electronic dance concert featuring DJ Avicii.

    In a statement Thursday, Garden spokeswoman Tricia McCorkle said the facility is “always looking to improve and we will continue to work with city officials to enhance our training and to utilize their expertise.”

    “The safety of our guests is our top priority, and we are confident in the precautions we took,” she said.
