Islanders Opener at UBS Arena Sells Out in Minutes



UBS Arena

The New York Islanders first game at UBS Arena is the hottest ticket in town.

Tickets for the home opener on Nov. 20 sold out in just minutes after individual game tickets went on sale on Friday. The Islanders host the Calgary Flames that night in the organization’s first-ever game in the brand new arena.

Construction is still underway on the new venue and it has caused the Islanders to start the first 13 games on the road this season while the finishing touches are put on UBS Arena. The Islanders broke ground on the Belmont Park site in September of 2019 after receiving the needed green light from New York State.

The state-of-the-art venue will hold 17,113 for New York Islanders games when it is completed.
