The Islanders have played in the Nassau Coliseum since 1972, and have battled through some of the toughest seasons there, winning four Stanley Cups. The team moved to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn following the 2014-2015 season while the Nassau Coliseum closed down for renovations.
Now, since the Nassau Coliseum has undergone renovation, it is the ideal home for the NY Islanders and their loyal fans. The team belongs where their fans are, right here on Long Island.
Not only will having the team back on Long Island give fans back a sense of pride, but it will also create jobs and give a boost to the local economy and businesses surrounding the coliseum.
We, the undersigned, call for the return of the NHL Long Island's only major-league sports franchise to Long Island. Let’s welcome the Long Islanders to their true home and loyal fans!
