Forest City Ratner Chosen To Renovate Nassau Coliseum With Deal Stretching 49 Years
Published August 16, 2013
SMALL GETS SMALLER: In N.Y., Brett Cyrgalis notes the Islanders, by moving to Barclays Center, will "already have the smallest capacity of any building in the NHL, just under 15,000 seats." The renovated Coliseum "would hold even fewer, probably around 12,000." In hopes of "making up for the possible loss of 3,000 ticket sales, it’s believed tickets for the Islanders’ games at the new Coliseum would be significantly more expensive." The NHL has "made no declaration about the deal, but the league would have to approve it before one of its teams begins to play home games in two different venues" (N.Y. POST, 8/16).
