BROOKLYN, N.Y.—All Access season tickets for NETS Basketball at the Barclays Center of Brooklyn are on sale today for the general public, in advance of the team’s relocation to Brooklyn for the 2012-2013 NBA season. Tickets are available at www.barclayscenter.com or by calling 877-77-BKTIX.
Season tickets for these premium locations will feature the unprecedented NETS All Access Pass. This Pass will offer fans several distinctive elements, including the opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public to non-NETS events that will be staged at the Barclays Center. The NETS All Access Pass can also be used for unlimited food, prepared by award-winning Levy Restaurants, at designated clubs and all fixed concession stands during NETS games -- a first-time offering for a major New York metropolitan area sports team.
Additional NETS All Access Pass benefits will include: a private entrance, dedicated VIP speed lines at all public entrances, concierge service, early access into the Barclays Center, membership to the Barclays Center Business Alliance (a corporate networking program exclusive to sponsors and season ticketholders), and much more.
NETS All Access Passes went on sale to the team’s current season ticket holders on March 30. While NETS All Access Passes are the first ticket offerings being made available, sales of NETS season tickets in non-premium locations of the Barclays Center will be launched in different phases later this year.
When all price points are unveiled, the NETS ticket prices will be available for everyone's budget. Two thousand tickets will be priced at $15. In addition, 50 percent of all season tickets will be priced at $55 or less per game, and lower level season tickets will start at $65.
There will be no Personal Seat License (PSL) for NETS tickets.
NETS All Access Pass season tickets start at $99, with 20 price points overall. In addition, in an effort to give customers cost certainty amidst a trend of rising ticket prices, prices for the NETS All Access Pass premium season tickets will remain flat during the three-year required commitment.
“We have had an unbelievable response to our NETS All Access Pass since its launch six weeks ago,” said NETS CEO Brett Yormark. “It’s clear that the marketplace is excited for the NETS’ move to Brooklyn and into the most highly anticipated new sports and entertainment facility in the world. The NETS All Access Pass is creating a resounding buzz due to its unprecedented features, while offering the greatest ticket value for a major venue in the New York Metropolitan area. We are looking forward to celebrating the electrifying opening of the Barclays Center of Brooklyn on September 28, 2012. It was always a dream that one day major professional sports would return to Brooklyn. One day is finally here.”
The NETS also have launched their “One Day” integrated marketing campaign, created by advertising firm Translation, which promotes the realization that major professional sports is finally returning to Brooklyn.
