MTA Tours Barclays Center

On Monday, December 21, 17 members of Yeshiva University High School for Boys’ (MTA) Sports Management Club, along with Executive Director Shuey Jacoby, were privileged to receive a private tour of Barclays Center. Barclays is the famous home to 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.
