From the island to Brooklyn, hockey is almost here
It’s quickly becoming a reality.
The New York Islanders, soon to be Brooklyn’s very first NHL club, are coming, and on a high note at that. During the final season in Uniondale, which the franchise has called home since 1972, the team is having its best season in years, spending a good portion of it in first place in the Metropolitan Division.
Barclays Center recently announced that season tickets for the inaugural 2015-16 campaign at Barclays will go on sale Tuesday, February 10 at 9 a.m.
“The Islanders are having a terrific season with a young, dynamic team, and the timing couldn’t be better for their arrival in Brooklyn next season,” said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. “While there’s a lot of excitement in the borough about its new team, we’ve also been delighted by the enormous interest among current season ticket holders who are following the Islanders to Brooklyn. Our priority in pricing our general season tickets was to ensure that Islanders games are accessible. We are also looking forward to providing all Islander fans with Barclays Center’s renowned guest experience.”
