Brooklyn is ready for another NBA season! Heading to a Brooklyn Nets game soon? If it’s your first visit to the arena, there’s much to know before you go. Here’s a quick look at tickets, how to reach the arena, parking near Barclays Center, and more visitors tips for the upcoming home games.  

The Brooklyn Nets have been playing their home games at the Barclays Center since 2012 when they relocated to the NYC borough from New Jersey. From 1977 to 2012, they were known as the New Jersey Nets. However, the franchise’s history goes back to 1967, and they won two ABA championships (1974 and 1976) while based in Long Island as the New York Nets.  

Though the Nets are yet to win a championship title, they made back-to-back NBA Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003. They also have four division titles – 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006. After moving to Brooklyn, the team got seven playoff berths and made it to the Eastern Conference Semifinals twice – in 2014 and 2021.  

Last season (2021-22), the Brooklyn Nets finished fourth in the Atlantic Division with 44 wins from 82 games (.537). However, they lost to the Boston Celtics 0-4 in the first round of playoffs.

Is there parking at Barclays Center?

Barclays Center does not have an on-site parking facility. So, you’re on your own with Brooklyn Nets gameday parking! No need to worry; there are plenty of garages and lots in the neighborhood. However, finding an affordable and safe parking spot close to the arena during basketball season is challenging.  

There’s a valet stand at 630 Atlantic Avenue, but it won’t be cheap. Parking garages in the neighborhood charge up to $60 or more, depending on the demand and availability. Drive-up rates in NYC are unpredictable and often too high. Meanwhile, street parking may seem the best alternative, but there’s no guarantee you’ll find a vacant spot next to the arena on game day.
