If the massive steel skeleton on Flatbush and Atlantic wasn’t enough of a reminder, the nightmare of almost every South Brooklyn resident just got one step close to reality today. Bruce Ratner’s much reviled Barclays Center is scheduled to open on Septmber 28, 2012, at least according to this e-mail blast that I received from American Express this morning.
The NETS All Access Pass is your 2012-13 season ticket to the NETS and their new home, The Barclays Center of Brooklyn, scheduled to open on Fri, 09/28/12.
Along with the excitement that comes with live NETS games, the NETS All Access Pass gets you:
Guaranteed first purchase rights to close to 200 events annually
Access to designated hospitality clubs
Unlimited food and select beverages
Priority service in concession lines
Don’t miss this presale:*
Mon, 05/16/11, 10M EST – Wed, 05/18/11, 10AM EST.
Cardmembers, purchase by calling the NETS Sales Office at 888-718-BKNY.**
I added the emphasis to the part about “guaranteed first purchase rights to other events”, could be something interesting for concertgoers or possibly just another way to sell more advanced tickets to Sesame on Ice or the latest Cirque Du Soleil drivel.
