Barclays Center Information and Schedule

Barclays Center Tickets

Barclays Center TicketsProfessional sports officially returned to Brooklyn, New York in 2012 when the Barclays Center opened along Atlantic Avenue. No major sports franchise had called the city home since the Brooklyn Dodgers of Major League Baseball left the area in 1957 for the sunny shores of Los Angeles, but the opening of the Barclays Center in September 2012 as the new home of the Brooklyn Nets marked the return of sports to the city. Since then, Barclays Center tickets have been sold for a variety of events in the multi-purpose arena.

The concept for a new arena in Brooklyn dates back to 2004 when Bruce Ratner, a majority owner of the New Jersey Nets at the time, proposed moving the team to a new arena in Brooklyn that would form the centerpiece of a multi-billion dollar commercial and residential development project in the Atlantic Yards area of Brooklyn. At first the arena faced a number of issues, including funding troubles during the recession and resistance from the local community.

In the end, groundbreaking took place in 2010 and the first Barclays Center tickets were sold in September 2012. Ironically, the first event to take place at the Barclays Center was a Jay-Z concert held on 28 September 2012. Jay-Z is a minority shareholder with the NBA's Brooklyn Nets. The franchise is the primary tenant of Barclays Center and, as part of its relocation and lease deal with the arena, changed its name from the New Jersey Nets to the Brooklyn Nets.

Less than one month later, the NHL's New York Islanders announced a deal that would see the franchise move from the aging Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island to the Barclays Center. With the Islanders' lease expiring at the Coliseum and no deal in place to upgrade or replace the aging facility, the decision was made to allow the franchise to move to Brooklyn. The first Barclays Center tickets for Islanders games will be sold starting with the 2015-16 NHL season.

During its brief history, Barclays Center tickets have been sold for a wide variety of other events as well. Just a few examples include WWE wrestling events, NCAA men's basketball games and conference tournaments, a graduation ceremony for the students of the Polytechnic Institute of NYU, and the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

In the coming weeks and months, Barclays Center tickets will be sold for a number of different events taking place in Brooklyn. Currently the Brooklyn Nets are hosting NBA Playoff games, but other events include a 9 May concert date on the Cher - D2K Tour 2014, a Brooklyn Boxing circuit event on 14 June between Provodnikov and Algieri, a Morrissey concert on 21 June, and the 2014 NBA Draft will be hosted by Barclays Center on 26 June 2014.

The Barclays Center is the latest in a string of billion dollar stadiums and arenas opening in the New York City metropolitan area, following Yankee Stadium and MetLife Stadium. Whether you are a basketball fan or avid concert attendee, there is an event at Barclays Center for you. The best place to find affordable Barclays Center tickets is Onlineticketsusa.com.
