A run to the Stanley Cup Semifinals in back-to-back years surely helped the New York Islanders sell season tickets to their new arena at Belmont Park. So much so that the team announced on Monday that they had sold out of season tickets for their inaugural year at UBS Arena.
Over 12,000 New York Islanders fans have purchased season subscriptions, according to a press release. Only six of the new arena’s 56 suits are still available and 250 seats are left in UBS Arena’s Dime Club, the release stated.
“Selling out season tickets is a true testament to this loyal fanbase,” Oak View Group CEO Tim Leiweke said in a statement. “This arena will bring the very best in both hockey and entertainment to fans across the region and we’re excited to open up the doors to the public this fall.”
Information on individual ticket sales and a season ticket waiting list will be announced at a later date.
The New York Islanders are moving into UBS Arena in the fall upon its completion. It’s expected to be done in time for the 2021-22 NHL season, although there is no firm date set for when the new building will open.
“We are so proud to have the support of these Islanders fans. They’ve responded in such overwhelming fashion,” New York Islanders Senior Vice President Sales, Service and Business Intelligence Mike Cosentino said. “This milestone marks exponential growth in our season ticket base over the last number of years. We’re looking forward to welcoming the Islanders faithful to their new home at UBS Arena in the fall.”
The $1.1 billion UBS Arena is part of a larger redevelopment project at Belmont Park. It will also include a shopping and entertainment district, hotel and community space as part of the full development of the aging state land.
The Islanders broke ground on UBS Arena in the fall of 2019.
New York is currently in the middle of a Stanley Cup Semifinals battle with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The series is even at 2-2.
