Get them while they’re hot.
The New York Islanders announced on Wednesday that the first seven home games at the Nassau Coliseum had sold out with fans returning to the building beginning this week. The Islanders will welcome 1,000 Northwell Health first responders into the building on Thursday when they host the New Jersey Devils.
Season ticket holders will return to the Coliseum next Thursday when the Islanders host the Philadelphia Flyers. The Islanders only opened up seven home games for fans to purchase tickets to following their announcement that they were opening the building back up to 10 percent of fans.
The New York Islanders only sold tickets to their March 18 game vs. Philadelphia, March 20 vs. Philadelphia, April 1st vs. Washington Capitals, April 3rd vs. Philadelphia Flyers, Tuesday, April 6 vs. Washington Capitals, April 8 vs. Philadelphia Flyers and April 9 vs. New York Rangers.
Season ticket holders who were not able to get tickets for the first set of games will be given priority for the next set of games that the Islanders open up ticket sales to. They will make an announcement about that later this month, the team said.
Fans that are not season ticket holders can sign up to be placed on a pre-sale list to access tickets for future games at Nassau Coliseum.
The New York Islanders, like the rest of the teams in New York, is being limited to 10 percent capacity per state guidelines, require anyone in attendance to provide proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the game and require face coverings while in the building.
New York Islanders fans have not been inside Nassau Coliseum in over a year. Sunday marked the one-year anniversary since the last time fans were in attendance, which was March 7, 2020 when the Islanders fell to the Carolina Hurricanes in overtime.
