About Barclays Center
The Brooklyn Nets play at the stunning, modern Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which can accommodate up to 18,000 fans. Barclays Center was built just for this team only. Before all this, they were actually called The New Jersey Nets and played in East Rutherford, NJ. Jay-Z, iconic rapper turned businessman, helped bring the Nets to Brooklyn. By signing superstars like Kevin Durant and James Harden, the sky has become the limit for the Nets.
How to get there & when to arrive
Barclays Center is easily accessible by subway. Lines 2 3 4 5 B and Q stop right at the stadium, and you can get there in less than 30 minutes from Midtown, Manhattan. The official name of the station is “Atlantic Av – Barclays Center”. You can’t miss it, especially on game-night where there will be huge crowds.
We recommend getting to the stadium an hour before the start of the game. This will allow you to avoid the long waiting lines that generally form right before the game, plus you will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the arena and watch the teams warm-up. It is also a good idea to go buy some drinks and some food during beforehand, so you don’t have to miss any of the action!
More about the Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets are currently on their fourth franchise name. The name changes were always the result of moving into different areas of the city. First, they were called the New Jersey Americans, then the New York Nets, subsequently the New Jersey Nets, and since 2012 they are known as the Brooklyn Nets. Their new home is the beautiful Barclays Center, opened by none other than Jay-Z (he is also one of the team owners). Moving the team to Brooklyn and building a new stadium was part of an initiative to restore Downtown Brooklyn into a lively and modern neighborhood. While this initiative met with skepticism early on, locals are now proud of their team, that grows stronger with every season.
History and Successes of the Brooklyn Nets
The Nets as an organization have been playing in the NBA since 1967 and have weathered a series of moves and name changes. Following a turbulent history, the team has significantly stabilized in the last few years and has been making a run at the play-offs. Even though they’re the newest team in NYC, and have to compete with the history of the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets will surely make it a rivalry in the future.
