This past Monday, 17 members of MTA’s Sports Management Club, along with Executive Director Shuey Jacoby, were privileged to receive a private tour of Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets of the NBA and New York Islanders of the NHL. The tour of the arena, which was set up with the ice rink in advance of the Islanders game that was taking place later that day, allowed the students to understand both the infrastructure and collaboration of ideas required to accommodate two major league sports teams in two different sports under one roof. Following the tour, the students were guided to the Nets practice court where they were further educated about the art of operating a sports center, and were even given a tour of some of the private club spaces. Overall, the trip was a huge success and students of the club are looking forward to their next educational and recreational adventure.

Special Thanks to the Brooklyn Nets and New York Islanders for the private the tour of the Barclays Center and to Shuey Jacoby for arranging the trip.
