So, for your next vacation to New York City, you can go to a New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets game. The tickets are now on sale!
If you already know when you’re going to New York, purchase your tickets now to have the better seats at the best price 😉
How much does it cost?
The tickets for a Brooklyn Nets match are a little bit cheaper than NY Knicks ones.
It depends on each game and the teams they are playing against.
Don’t wait to buy your tickets in the next weeks. If you purchase your ticket ‘asap’ your possibility of finding cheap tickets in good spots is better.
How well can you watch the game from the cheapest seats?
It is true that if you have courtside seats, you will enjoy the match more and see the match better.
Now, the important thing is to be there! Even if you are seated in the highest seats, you can still experience the vibe and feelings that only an NBA match can offer you.
I’d rather save some money for shopping and restaurants than pay a $500 ticket. Each one of us has its priorities… So if you love basketball, don’t hesitate and purchase courtside tickets.
What’s better: to watch a NY Knicks or Brooklyn Nets match?
Feel free to make your own decision:
The Knicks are the New York team, and its house is the mythical Madison Square Garden. The Madison Square Garden had witnessed performances of big stars like Madonna, Michael Jackson, The Beatles… and Boxing fights with Mohammed Ali, Mike Tyson…
The Brooklyn Nets were created in 2012. They became famous in part thanks to the Hip Hop star Jay Z. They play at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn; it is new with a better infrastructure than Madison Square Garden.
The Madison Square Garden is located in New York’s heart, next to Penn Station, and the Barclays Center is in Brooklyn, 25 minutes away from Times Square (by Metro). It’s not that far away from Manhattan.
Well, it is up to you. You can see a symbolic team or a trendy one.
What is the best time to be there?
I recommend that you arrive 1 hour before the match starts, so you will have the time to look for your seats and take a look around. There are bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, and activities to do before the main event.
You can’t miss the moment when the players come in, the national anthem… It is a wonderful show!
How will they send me my NBA tickets?
When purchasing, you will see there is a fee for sending your tickets by mail (USPS) or email. It’s cheaper to buy e-tickets!
What could happen if the postal service sent me the tickets before my departure while I’m in the US, or if it’s too late?
The indicated date is a limit day to be sent. In most cases, they’ll send it to you 2 to 4 weeks before the day of the event.
So, if you are in another country or overseas, and you didn’t get your NBA tickets before your departure to NYC, you should contact the Ticketnetwork call center and ask for the tickets via email. They always fix situations!
A lot of people have been through this situation, so no worries!
Can you buy tickets at the Madison Square Garden or Barclays Center directly?
Yes, at their box office.
Purchasing tickets on the same day or pretty close to the event date can result in not finding anything available, and in case you get some tickets, they will be more expensive.
Last-minute tickets can go up to USD 350 (it depends on the teams playing), or if there are some USD 60 tickets available, they could be separate seats, which is not recommendable if you are with your friends, family, or partner.
I like to have everything prepared before heading to NYC and have no “surprises” when getting there. It’s up to you!
Before heading to the game, don’t forget to gear up at the NBA Store!
