Islanders splitting home games between Coliseum and Barclays Center

John Tavares

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Monday the team's agreement to play 12 home games at Nassau Coliseum next season, with the other 30 taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The permanent New arena at Belmont isn't expected to open until the 2021-2022 season.

Gov. Cuomo, team officials, and the National Hockey League are scheduled to make an announcement at the Coliseum on Monday morning. "The coliseum will have some basic accommodations to meet the specifications of the commissioner".

The New York Islanders are coming home after all.

Islanders splitting home games between Coliseum and Barclays Center

The Islanders are going home to the Nassau Coliseum - at least temporarily, the Daily News has learned.

Ever since the New York Islanders relocated to Brooklyn's Barclays Center in 2015, many of their die-hard fans have clamored for an eventual return to their first home, the 46-year-old Nassau Coliseum. So the team drafted its winning proposal to build a new home in Elmont instead, allowing for a homecoming to LI, just not at its original home. But I've always said the team belongs on Long Island. He said fans can buy tickets for the coliseum home games by calling 844-33-Isles. We had an exhibition game there this year and it brought back a lot of great memories. I really haven't thought about it a whole lot. "It's where the team was born, created its identity", he said at the NHL All-Star Game in Tampa, via Newsday.
