NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The New York Islanders Hockey Club has seen ticket demand skyrocket over the last month. Last week was the all-time record for Islanders season ticket sales, driven by the team’s first round series win and by the recent launch of UBS Arena at Belmont Park. Only 20 percent of season tickets remain available for the inaugural 2021-22 NHL season.
«As the team heads into the second round of the playoffs, the unprecedented demand for season tickets adds a new level of excitement about the team. The support from our loyal Islanders fans across the metro NY region has been tremendous,» said Islanders Co-Owner Jon Ledecky.
The Islanders also expect to be sold out of premium inventory by early next year. UBS Arena at Belmont Park has sold more than one-third of its suite inventory in the last two weeks.
«We are thrilled to see this strong response to UBS Arena at Belmont Park, which will be the state of the art sports and music venue in the market,» said Tim Leiweke, CEO of Oak View Group, a partner in UBS Arena at Belmont Park.
