The 4-time Stanley Cup New York Islanders have been a source of entertainment and pride for Long Islanders since their inception. After spending the past few seasons in Brooklyn, it’s time to bring them back to Long Island!
The renovated Nassau Coliseum will now be a state-of-the-art facility, and would be perfect home for the New York Islanders and their fans. It will:
- Give Long Island Families great professional sporting events and a source of Long Island pride
- Encourage more children to become involved in athletics
- Allow our young hockey players to see professional athletes up close and personal
- Provide continuing jobs at many levels both at the coliseum and affiliated businesses
- Increase revenue opportunities for local businesses, restaurants, hotels, car services
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!
